Proud dad's a winner after son's debut
The proud father of a teenage footballer became £10,000 richer when his son played for Manchester United.
Midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe, 19, came on for his debut in the 76th minute of his team's Capital One Cup win over Newcastle.
His father, Mick, placed a £100 bet when his son was nine that he would one day play for the team - at the odds of 100-1.
And there could be worse to come for bookmakers William Hill.
Tunnicliffe's dad placed another £100 bet, at odds of 350/1, that his son would one day play for England.
"The last time a bet of this nature cost us £10,000 was when Chris Kirkland made his debut in goal for England, also landing a £100 bet for his father," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
"We will obviously be paying close attention to the progress of Ryan's career in the future."
