A Peterborough United fan is in the running to win £250k for his favourite club.

David Ward, from Ormskirk, Lancashire could also win £5k for himself from a ‘Summer Transfer Window’ competition run by Football League sponsors Sky Bet.

Fans generated ‘Transfer token funds’ by using their Sky Bet account and David was then one of the 10 lucky winners selected randomly by the company,

They all now enter a draw that takes place at Wembley Stadium on Friday (July 10) to win £250k for their club aas well as a £5K personal prize.

David, who works as a warehouse supervisor, said: “I’m so shocked to be selected in the final 10, but excited for the draw at the same time.

“If I won the £250,000 prize for Peterborough, I hope Dave Robertson will use the money to bring in a new striker.

“My best friend has just moved to Australia, so a visit will be on the cards if I win the £5,000 prize!”

Friday Final Draw will be hosted by top Sky Sports News HQ presenters Jim White and Natalie Sawyer.

Jim said: “It is going to be really exciting to see one fan win £250,000 for their Football League club. You can only imagine how the chairman, manager and players of the winning club are going to react when they hear the news!

The winning club will also be able to spend the £250,000 on players’ wages.

The Football League clubs with a chance of winning are Derby County, Posh, Carlisle United, Ipswich Town, Cardiff City, Rotherham United, Coventry City, Newport County, Bolton Wanderers and Southend United.
