A FOOTBALL fan has scored a top prize in an end of season raffle.

For Donald Clanachan is the proud owner of a brand new car after winning Queen of the Southís annual draw.
Ten numbers were chosen at random from the weekly deluxe draw and shortlisted for a Suzuki, which was donated by Border Cars.
And Mr Clanachan’s number was the lucky one plucked from a hat by the clubís manager James Fowler.
Mr Clanachan was joined by his wife Nancy as the draw took place, and said he was ëover the moon, chuffed to bitsí as he accepted the prize.
The family are enjoyed a lucky streak at the moment as Mrs Clanachan recently won a competition giving them the use of a Massey Ferguson tractor for six months.
The deluxe draw, which is priced at £2 a week, offers daily prizes of £25 and £50 as well as a weekly prize of £500.
Furthermore, one lucky player also receives a cheque for £1000 each month, with the Christmas draw rising to £3000, and a car is up for grabs at the end of the season.
