Ed Houghton from Knutsford is £250,000 the richer after landing the Super 6 jackpot by predicting correct scores in six selected matches on Saturday.

The win will be all the sweeter as the top prize was hiked up from £100k to £250k for the new season after two years without a winner and, remarkably, it was Mr Houghton's first attempt at the free-to-play online game.

Mr Houghton was the only entrant of 505,731 to correctly predict the exact outcomes of Cardiff v Newcastle (1-2), Fulham v Stoke (1-0), Hull City v Aston Villa (0-0), Liverpool v Crystal Palace (3-1), Burnley v Reading (2-1) and QPR v Barnsley (2-0) thanks to Charlie Austin's late penalty for Harry Redknapp's side.

With millions having tried and failed since the last winner back in May 2011, the weekly game is considered the ultimate test of football knowledge due to the difficulty posed, with only two previous jackpot winners since it was launched back in 2008.

Mr Houghton joins an exclusive club of Super 6 winners along with Peter Townly and Jonathan Kilpatrick. The top prize was almost landed on the opening weekend of the Sky Bet Football League season, with one unlucky entrant denied by Luke Murphy's 94th-minute winner in Leeds' 2-1 victory.

If you fancy a crack at future Super 6 games, we also have the Sporting Life League for you to join in the fun.

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
