Steels get last minute draw


Stocksbridge PS 1 Belper 1

Goalkeeper David Reay was the unlikely hero and goal-scorer after equalising for Stocksbridge in the 94th minute of the draw with Belper Town at Bracken Moor.

The Steels were staring down the barrel of a disappointing home defeat having trailed to Leandro Browne’s back-post finish on the half-hour mark.

Belper then parked the proverbial bus and Stocksbridge really struggled to break their visitors.

When substitute Ben Rhodes was sent off for two bookable offences, Stocksbridge’s hopes looked lost.

That when desperate tactics from a Steels corner reaped a big rewards as Reay got the final touch on the ball during a mass scramble to score his first career goal.
