JULIE Cowan tips she is going to be happy with the new car she won in APN's national footy tipping competition.

Yesterday, Mrs Cowan, of Alstonville, drove away in a brand new Jeep Compass Sport she was awarded from James Frizelle's Northern Rivers Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep dealership for being the overall winner of the competition that ran in all APN daily papers.

Mrs Cowan enters "a lot" of competitions, but said she had "never won anything like a car".

In fact, she was so shocked to hear she had won the Jeep she didn't believe it and hung up the phone.

"I read the competition wrong when I first saw it in the paper and I thought I was just winning a trophy," Mrs Cowan said.

"So when they rang and told me I'd won a car I didn't believe it.

"I had to get my husband to call back and make sure it was for real."

Mrs Cowan, who also won a $500 Coles/Myer voucher for being a Northern Star subscriber, was one of 6000 tippers from Queensland and NSW who entered the competition.

What is the secret to footy tipping is? Mrs Cowan said she just had "beginner's luck".

"For me, there was no secret to being successful in a footy tipping competition.

"I just picked whichever names sounded good, but I always took Manly Sea Eagles.

Whether the Sea Eagles won her the new car, Mrs Cowan wanted to thank everyone involved and couldn't wait to be driving her new Jeep.

James Frizelle's general manager Karl Meir said the automotive group was "really happy" to have donated the car and wished Mrs Cowan many happy adventures in her new Jeep.

"It's fantastic to be on board and we're so happy someone from the Lismore area has won the car," Mr Meir said.
