Paddy Power pay out on all bets for Yeovil to beat Wolves after 8-2 weekend mauling

It’s one for Glovers as we’re rewarding the ridiculous optimism of punters who backing them after Saturday’s trouncing…


Following their 8-2 thumping at the hands of Luton Town on the first day of the season, you could forgive Yeovil Town fans for not feeling optimistic about the League Two outfit’s chances in the League Cup on Tuesday.

Yeovil manger Darren Way was “bitterly” disappointed by Saturday’s defeat and described it as “completely unacceptable”.

The West Country side faced a mammoth away trip to big-spending Championship side Wolves, arguably the last thing their shell-shocked squad needed.

But, ahead of the tie, Paddy Power decided to reward the ridiculous optimism of any fans who have still backed the Glovers at 11/1 to win on Tuesday.

So we paid out on the Glovers winning, almost two hours before kick-off, to all 61 bettors who had bet on them before 5pm today. Yeovil would gone on to put up a valiant effort against their big spending Championship opponents, but would fall to a 1-0 defeat at Molineux.

Needless to say after the sickening loss of their team at the weekend, Yeovil supporters we’re happy to have their day brightened by the gesture before the game.

Even the club saw the funny side…

Asked about the move spokesman Paddy Power said: “You’ve got to Glove-r the optimism of football fans – backing Yeovil Town to win tonight is another classic example.

“Yeovil, surely, don’t have a chance tonight – but those who have backed them will be winners regardless. Paddy Power You Beauty!”
