A speculative bet placed on Charlie Austin some six years ago is poised to win a group of Poole Town supporters almost £8,000.

Austin had just left Poole for Swindon Town at the time having scored 64 goals in 57 games during the season-and-a-half he spent with the club in the Wessex League Premier Division.

Arsenal fans asks the Queen to score him an FA Cup final ticket

Despite the fact that Wembley Stadium holds 90,000 people, fans of FA Cup finalists Arsenal and Aston Villa have been left scrambling for tickets after receiving just 25,000 allocated tickets apiece from the Football Association.

As such, fans have been moving heaven and Earth in the struggle to get their hands on tickets on the open market, with droves of disappointed supporters still ending up empty-handed.

However, faced with the very same predicament, plucky Arsenal fan Charlie Pearce decided...
