Kallum Kirk shone as Team Derby Men’s Football 4ths comfortably beat Staffordshire University 5-2 at home this afternoon.
The striker hit four past the away side with the other goal for Derby coming from Sam Rendle.
Kirk grabbed his first of the game on the 19th minute after a powerful 20-yard run towards goal. Despite an attempt from the opposition defender to push him off the ball he managed to slot it home.
His second of the game came in the 44th minute and was arguably the best of his haul. Kirk picked up the ball and beat his man on the edge of the 18-yard box, before curling his shot in off the post.
Kirk then completed his hat-trick six minutes into the second half with a neat penalty after he was bought down himself.
His and the team’s final goal of the game came in the 90th minute. Kirk was the only Derby player in the final third and was heavily surround by Staffordshire players but he still managed to precisely smash the ball in from only eight yards out.
Speaking after the game Kirk said: “It is always great to score four goals, but I could not have done it without everyone else there.”
