Football Fans Net Euromillions Win

February kicked off to a good start for 11 Aston Villa fans when heir syndicate won £1 million in last Friday's EuroMillions draw.

The Villa fans have been friends since their schooldays, and call their syndicate 'Bigger Than Normal Peeps'. "It was just a silly name," explained syndicate leader Simon Ashcroft. "We didn’t expect to be on television with a check for a million pounds with the name on it."

Each member takes a £90,909 share of the winnings and they all have different plans for the money, but the first thing they plan to do is pay for a luxury box at the Aston Villa Football Ground.
