A HAT-TRICK from Phil Davidson helped Stocksfield exact their revenge on Premier Division rivals Gateshead Rutherford.
The striker was on top form to help himself to three of his side’s goals in their 5-0 victory over their relegation threatened visitors.
In the reverse fixture, Stocksfield were undone by goals from Sam Moore, Jay Keelan and Sean Wilkinson – all three of whom played for teams in the Hexham and District Sunday League at the time, with the latter two turning out for Stocksfield’s Sunday side!
But there was no chance of a repeat of the 3-2 triumph for Gateshead, Stocksfield dominating proceedings to win the match-up comfortably.
Rutherford must have known it was not to be their day when man of the match winger Keiron Day scored direct from a corner.
The victory was rounded off by a goal from teenage midfielder Kane White, the success the team’s second in a row following their 3-0 triumph over bottom club Hebburn Reyrolle the week previous.
While Stocksfield-born Fraser Forster recently broke the Scottish Premier League record for consecutive clean sheets at Celtic,, current Griffins goalie Bryan Wood was thrilled to have completed a second shut-out in a row as Stocksfield moved up to ninth in the table.
