A Clarets fan is celebrating after winning £250,000 on Sky Sports Super 6.

Ed Houghton, who is a farmer in Cheshire, beat 500,000 other entrants to win after his six football score predictions proved correct. The results included Burnley’s 2 -1 win over Reading. The weekly game has seen only two previous jackpot winners since it was launched back in 2008.

Ed said: “It was a massive game and with Burnley being in the Super 6 it made one of my predictions an easy picking.

“I used to be a season ticket holder but stopped due to commitments on the farm, although I still follow them closely.”
