The latest winner of Bute Shinty Club’s lotto jackpot is none other than the club’s own secretary, Alan Liddell.

Alan scooped the £500 jackpot in the March 16 draw and received his prize the following day from Jenny Toop at Toffo’s newsagent in Rothesay, where he bought his ticket.

Not surprisingly for one of the club’s office-bearers, Alan told us he hoped to use some of his winnings to sponsor one of the club’s upcoming home matches.

The weekly lotto draw prize starts at £100 and increases by £100 each week until a winning ticket is drawn, up to a maximum of £1,500.
