Its Friday and that can only mean one thing, yep its nearly the weekend, so you are perfectly within your rights to take it easy in the office for a bit and indulge yourself in the latest edition of Viva Video. If anyone asks, we said you could ok. For those who do like to view these clips secretly at their desk and try and get away with it without anyone else noticing I’m afraid your challenge has increased a little. As this week’s video is not so much a video, as an audio clip masquerading as a video. It is a good clip though, and something we here at Viva Towers have not come across before.
Unsurprisingly given the high amount of money paid out for Billy Sharp, Rovers other forwards have been nudged into the shadows quite a bit of late, reduced to playing second fiddle up front and appearances as the subject of a two-bit drawing competition. This week’s viva video gives chance for one of those forwards, namely James Hayter, to shine as we revisit a fantastic record breaking feat of his achieved under his current Rovers manager and with the assistance of his current Rovers captain, but sadly not in Rovers colours.
Whilst at Bournemouth Hayter famously set the record for the fastest ever Football League hat-trick with three goals in less than three minutes after coming on as a substitute against Wrexham. Hayter, came on in the 85th minute with the Cherries already leading 3-0 and long before the fourth official signified how long was left he had successfully doubled the score-line. Here, for your ears, is the commentary of that record-breaking hat-trick in its entirety as broadcast on Radio Solent.
Also, one final warning. I’m afraid this audio video does contain persistent Chris Moyles from the start which some viewers may find distressing.
