JASON Johnston has netted £6,000 in a Sky Sports UK-wide competition.
Jason, who plays football for Ahoghill Thistle in the Ballymena Saturday Morning League, came close to winning the top prize – a cool quarter of a million pounds.
To win the Soccer Saturday Super 6 you have to predict the correct scores of six matches and Jason had five correct scores.
In the sixth game although he predicted Northampton to beat Crewe 2-1 Northampton in fact won 4-1.
However, as the best performer today across the UK he won £5,000 and an extra £1,000 for getting five correct scores.
And he had his name mentioned on TV.
