Lincoln punters among most patriotic England fans according to bookmaker

Lincolnshire Echo Online (18 June 2014)

As England gears up for the big match against Uruguay on Thursday, it seems the team can count on top-notch levels of support from its Lincoln fans.

Bookmaker William Hill has dubbed Lincoln punters some of the most patriotic in the UK in the run-up to the big game, with 85 per cent of all wagers in Lincoln counting on an English victory.

Lincoln fans have shown their levels of support to be a cut above, outperforming the national average of 75 per cent, and have earned themselves the title of fourth most patriotic punters in the UK.

The data comes from Bet Nation – William Hill’s World Cup minisite.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said: “After a strong showing against Italy and Uruguay’s capitulation against Costa Rica, England fans in Lincoln definitely fancy the Three Lions to kick start their campaign with a victory against Uruguay.”

England are currently 23/20 favourites to win Thursday’s match.
