More Hat-Trick Balls

Andy Rodgers and David Grant have added more hat-trick balls to their growing collection of match footballs following on from their scoring exploits in the recent victory at Preston Athletic.

Both Andy and David scored three each in the 7-1 Lowland League victory at Pennypit Park. To mark the feat Shire fan Emily Reynolds presented the players with signed match balls recently.


This season the team has equalled the club record nine hat-tricks scored in a single season but the Prestonpans game was the first time two Shire players had scored three goals each in the same match since 1947.

Funnily enough, the last time it happened Shire also won 7-1 against Raith Rovers ‘A’ in a C Division match at Firs Park on 20th September 1947.

Well done to Andy and David and thanks to Emily for helping with the presentation.
