KEEPING her eye on the ball has paid off for one lucky Ipswich woman.

June Griffiths, is celebrating today after netting a cash prize with Littlewoods Football Pools of almost £69,000.

Mrs Griffith scooped the cash after playing the pools game when she predicted seven score-draws and one no score-draw from the 49 fixtures.

The win was the second time Mrs Griffiths had found her luck was in, as she had also previously won £900 playing the Littlewoods Lotto game.

Mrs Griffiths has played the pools game for 2 years and after collecting her prize said: “I can't believe I won, I was absolutely stunned when I got the call.

“I have been quite lucky really, first with Littlewoods Lotto and now the pools and lotto. Hopefully I will make it three in a row!”
