CJ NETS £2.3K ON LUCKY NUMBERS JACKPOT
Montrose FC forward, Craig Johnston had reason to celebrate the end of the season recently when his numbers came up on the Montrose Football Lucky Numbers, netting him an amazing £2,350.
Run jointly by Montrose FC, Montrose Roselea JFC and Merpro AFC, the local community scheme, which gives participants 3 chances to win on each £1 ticket, has paid out almost £120,000 since it began back in 2008.
Craig, delighted with his win said, “When the gaffer phoned me I actually thought he was winding me up. It was a Monday, and I’d had better Mondays at work so that cheered me up! I plan to use the money to sort my holidays I have coming up.”
Scheme Promoter Stuart Robertson added, “As always, we are delighted to see big wins like Craig’s, as it highlights just how good the scheme is, both to those who play and to the local community. In the last 14 years we have raised over £155,000 to support local football and I would like to thank all those who continue to regularly buy our tickets.”
Craig is pictured receiving his bumper cheque from MFC Club Chairman, John Crawford.
