Former Doncaster Rovers youngster scores 16-minute hat trick for Rossington Main in cup win over Stocksbridge Park Steels
Former Doncaster Rovers striker Myron Gibbons scored a 16-minute hat trick as Rossington Main stunned Stocksbridge Park Steels in the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup.
Steels, who play two tiers higher than Main in the Northern Premier League, were 2-0 up at Oxford Street midway through the second half.
But Tyla Bell halved the deficit after 67 minutes before Gibbons stole the show.
He equalised with a smart finish before putting Rossington ahead from the penalty spot following a foul on Bell.
The visitors threw bodies forward in search of a late leveller only for the pacy Gibbons to score on the break and seal a memorable win for Ben Hunter’s side.
Main will now travel to NCEL Division One leaders Hallam in the quarter-finals.
Gibbons also scored on his debut at the weekend to help high-flying Rossington to an impressive 3-0 win over Harrogate Railway Athletic and leave them within a point of Hallam.
