That is certainly good news for nine-year-old Megan-Lucy Neville who found a rare five-leaf clover in her back garden on Monday.

But it did not stop there; after showing the plant to her astounded mum Chloe, Megan-Lucy dashed back to the garden and soon returned with NINE four-leaf clovers.

Miss Neville said everything happened just minutes after Megan-Lucy learned what a clover was.

“We were just in the house and she came across the flowers and asked me what they were,” she said.

“I said they are three-leaf clovers, but if you find a four-leaf one it’s very lucky.”

Curious about her new-found knowledge the nine-year-old went to the garden to investigate.

“She came back with the five-leaf clover and said, ‘like this?’” Miss Neville added.

“I was gobsmacked. I was stunned by it.”

Miss Neville, aged 25, said a patch of clovers often grow in the garden of their home in Spitfire Close, Ipswich, but gets cut back when the grass is mown.

Her reaction was shared by her partner Luke Mills and six-year-old son Jacob-James.

The young boy even tried to find one himself – but it seems Megan-Lucy is the only member of the family with an eye for a rare find.

“She’s been telling all her friends about it,” Miss Neville said. “She was really happy and had a massive smile on her face.”

Such an impressive find clearly had the family feeling flush with luck and a ticket for the EuroMillions lottery draw the next day was duly bought.

And while none of the clovers had three leaves, the number did make an appearance that day – the ticket produced a win of £3.
