A postman delivered on his football expertise by winning a hoard of gadgets in the summer Selco Predictor competition.

Rob Burrough, of Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire, scooped the top prize in the Brazil edition of the Selco Predictor, run in conjunction with talkSPORT.

Rob won £5,000 worth of Sony gadgets by guessing more correct scores and results than anyone else during the summer football bonanza in Brazil.

The 46-year-old said: “I couldn’t believe it. I’ve never won anything. I was absolutely rubbish in the Premier League Selco Predictor, so this really is a big turn in fortunes.”

Rob, who is a Tottenham Hotspur fan, plans to keep most of the gadgets for himself – but his three daughters already have their eyes on some of his prize.

“My daughters are 20, 18 and 14 so they’ve already claimed some of it,” he said.

The Brazil edition of the competition followed on from talkSPORT’s incredibly popular Premier League Predictor, which Selco began to sponsor at the start of this year, which gives players the chance to bag a £1 million jackpot by correctly predicting the results of 10 Premier League matches on any given weekend.

Selco also offered an exclusive monthly prize to its staff and customers of £1,000 worth of holiday vouchers for the top points-scorer each month registered in a league.

The Selco Predictor will be making a welcome return for the 2014-15 season in August.

Hosted on the talkSPORT website, the Selco Predictor can also be accessed in any Selco branch via a terminal located at the trade counter making access even easier.

Helen Cooper, Selco marketing director, said: “Everyone at Selco sends a huge congratulations to Rob for his victory. It’s a great prize and I hope he and his daughters enjoy it.

“The Selco Predictor has proved to be a huge success and I know a lot of people right across the country enjoy competing against their colleagues, family and friends to see who really knows their football.”
