Football sometimes gives you wonderful crazy memories in the form of unforgettable matches such as the one that took place in the English fourth tier between Bristol Rovers and Scunthorpe on Saturday.

It was the last game of the season and the hosts needed to win by seven goals against the already relegated Scunthorpe in their bid to secure promotion by sealing third place in League Two table.

And that’s exactly what happened despite Bristol Rovers needing to score as many as five goals in the second half. Aaron Collins and Anthony Evans netted a brace each, with Elliot Anderson scoring his team’s seventh to send the home crowd into a frenzy.

Scunthorpe‘s youngster, Oliver Lobley, has previously netted an own goal in the first half to put Bristol Rovers ahead before Connor Taylor doubled their lead.
