As the Sheffield derby at Sheffield FC neared its journey’s end, Stocksbridge Park Steels striker Danny Frost was on his knees. ‘The Iceman’ was running on empty and out of energy towards the end of his first full 90 minutes in seven months after an injury-hit 2019.
But with Stocksbridge threadbare due to several injuries and suspensions, options were minuscule, Frost had to keep going and heroically with one last burst of energy he produced a trademark finish, seen so many times during his Shaw Lane Aquaforce glory days, to equalise for the Steels.
The heroic goal made it 1-1 and secured a deserved point for Chris Hilton’s men, who had laid siege to Sheffield’s goal for a period of time.
The world’s oldest club had taken the lead in the second minute through Rob Darkin’s header from a corner.
In the other Yorkshire-based BetVictor South East clash, former Hemsworth Miners Welfare left-back Cameron Clark scored the winner for Grant Black’s Belper Town in the 2-1 victory at Frickley Athletic.
Ex-Ossett Town striker Alex Peterson was also on the score-sheet. Jacob Hazel got Frickley’s goal.
