BOTB dream car competition winner from Bexley surprised with a Jaguar and £20K cash {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

One lucky man in Bexley has been surprised with a £48K jaguar and a cash prize after he won a giveaway competition.

Graham Noake, 60, was handed the keys to a Jaguar XE-S worth £48,045 with £20,000 stuffed into the boot.

Retired Graham was about to set off on a birthday trip when he was doorstepped by BOTB, a car giveaway competition founded in 1999 that has awarded £22m worth of supercars to winners.

People can play at shopping centres and airports, with 75 per cent of people playing online.

Graham said: "I said he must have the best job in the world because he's made me so happy.

"I absolutely love jaguars and to win this now, a year into my retirement, is a real dream come true."

Graham said he saw the game in Gatwick airport and began playing.

The goal is to spot where the football would be in images where it has been removed.

"That's fantastic. I dreamt about this but you never really think it's going to come."

Graham worked for the FA for over 20 years, and recently bought a Ford C-Max.

He said: "My son Gregg has just moved out to get a place of his own and I'm having the driveway remodelled so I'll have somewhere nice to park my new car.

"Life is full of ups and downs and although we've had a tough year this is definitely one of the high points. "

BOTB uses former professional footballers such as England international Sol Campbell to judge the competition independently each week, alongside current and former referees.
