A Championship football club has been given £250,000 to spend on a new player courtesy of a loyal fan.
Mr Berry has been a Seagulls' fan since he was a child
Out of one million competition entrants Aaron Berry, 29, from Worthing in Sussex, won the money for Brighton and Hove Albion.
Mr Berry entered the competition which was organised by the league's sponsors, 80 times but was "shocked" at his win.
Brighton manager Mark McGhee said the club's main priority would be to buy a striker but he may cost more than £1m.
"We made inquiries and we've had everything from no, they're not available, to a £1m price tag.
"Unfortunately £250,000 is a bit short of £1m," Mr McGee added.
According to the competition rules, the Seagulls have until August to buy a player.
Mr Berry, who has been a fan since childhood, also won £10,000 for himself and was given a signed shirt.
"There has been three days of absolute shock, it still hasn't sunk in properly. It has been an amazing few days," he said.
