MY £25 to £250 challenge was completed but Newport made me sweat.
I only needed a 1-9 shot to see me over the line and plumped for Newport not to lose at home to Alfreton in their FA Cup replay.
Anyone following this would have been able to cash out when Newport led but an Alfreton leveller made me worry but they held on before winning after extra time.
Having reached my target I’m withdrawing £250 but I will put up mythical bets to see how far I can take it and will start a new one on Friday or Saturday.
Those still doing challenges I wish you luck – this is the place to do them so let’s see what you’ve got.
Newport not to lose (7.45pm)
(1-9, Stan James)
