The 75-year-old—who played for the Blues in the late 1950s—secured a win of exactly £5,517,016 in Saturday night’s National Lottery draw.

Bradbury earned only £25 per week during his professional career, despite playing alongside stars such as Jimmy Greaves and Terry Venables, according to the BBC. He was also eligible for a £4 win bonus or a £2 draw bonus—rewards that pale in comparison to his latest winning.

Bradbury bought a ticket from a WH Smith in Buxton, Derbyshire, near Tideswell, where he used to run a pub once his playing days had come to an end.

The wing half began his career at Chelsea, but struggled to make the grade with the Pensioners.

He left in 1962, before dropping down the divisions with the likes of Leyton Orient, Southend, Chester City and Wrexham.

The Lotto winner hung up his boots in 1973.
