Ayr United superfan ends dream week with club lottery jackpot win

An Ayr United super fan admits his perfect week ended with winning the club’s lottery.

Supporter Graeme Morton has won the latest £1,000 jackpot distributed by Five Star Lotto.

The ‘Grammy’ plaster guru cemented the top prize in the latest weekly draw.

But he joked that most of his winnings will likely go straight back into two of his great loves – United and The Home Bakery.

Graeme, 40, a father of three, told the Ayrshire Post: “The weeks don’t get much better than this and I’m still walking around with a huge cheeser after the derby last night.

“I work in Kilmarnock so to say I’m making the most of it would be an understatement.

Winning the lottery is just the icing on the cake.

“My agent Doddsy (Gordon McBlain) is such a top guy and I will no doubt be spending a lot of my winnings on pies and cakes from his bakery, not to mention lots of new products from the club shop.”

Baker McBlain was part of the first wave of Five Star Lotto agents in 1990.

Lotto’s Jeanne Kerr added: “We are delighted for Grammy. He is such a character and a supporter of all things Ayr United.

“He and Gordon are great guys and you only have to spend five minutes with them to know what the club means to them.”
