York City Footballer Launches New Social Gambling Site

A new 'social bet-work' site dubbed Bets of Mates has been launched by professional York City footballer Dave McGurk and partners John Hughes, and business development manager Adam Haywood, who claim this venture will change the way sports fans bet on their favorite UK teams.

The site takes registrations for free, allowing players to compete against each other in a fantasy football-style league setting. For every stake, each participant receives 100 points which they can distribute on different bets, with a win, lose or draw prediction, and the one with the highest score in the league wins the game.

Some of the Bets of Mates' features include social network-style message boards and alerts, and the site's primary focus is on domestic football leagues, although there are plans to expand to other sports such as darts, cricket and rugby.

According to McGurk, 'Bets of Mates was conceived over a few beers and the football on a Saturday afternoon. My business partners and I had been talking for some time about how there was a need for a betting service that combined the banter and competitiveness of friends, along with a guaranteed prize fund - unlike an accumulator bet where one wrong result can mean no winnings.

'We've had phenomenal interest with strong week-on-week signups. I see that this is down to Bets of Mates challenging the status quo when it comes to sports betting, and offering something refreshing and new.'
