‘ARSENAL fan John Moore stands to win £100,000 if his grandson Bobby Moore becomes captain of the England football team before he is 25.

The 75-year-old has put a £20 bet at odds of 5,000-1 on the four-month-old emulating the 1966 World Cup-winning captain.

‘I’ve given the betting slip to his dad – also called Robert,” says the Great Yarmouth pensioner. “It’s a great incentive for young Bobby to become a star.”

William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe said: ‘It’s time England found another Bobby Moore to lead us to glory. We’ll be delighted to pay out if little Bobby pulls it off.”
