Terry Kennedy Sheffield United: Watch the moment former Blades defender's life is transformed by £1MILLION lottery win
This is the moment former Sheffield United defender Terry Kennedy’s life changed forever – with a phone call confirming he had won £1MILLION on the lottery.
Footage of the moment was uploaded to social media, showing former Blade Kennedy – whose football career was ended prematurely by a spate of injuries – checking his win with what appears to be a member of lottery staff.
Anxiously clutching his ticket, the staff member then confirms he has won £1million – while Kennedy’s jubilant co-workers celebrate around him.
Blades may have Mousset decision to make as club 'eyes January move'
It was some birthday present for the Barnsley man, who turned 28 on Sunday and came through the United academy as a young player.
He partnered England international Harry Maguire in central defence for the Blades’ youth side, and was highly-rated by former United manager Nigel Clough.
But bad luck with injuries led to him leaving United before he had spells at a number of semi-pro clubs.
