Crawford treble hits Stow thump Spurs

Stow 6 Gala Hotspur 2


A JOHNNY Crawford hat-trick earned Stow a comfortable win over close rivals Gala Hotspur.

Gala took the lead on 10 minutes through Gary Cleghorn only for Stow to equalise when Crawford netted on 18 minutes.

Graeme Smith put the home side in the lead six minutes later before Martin Gibson’s effort made it 3-1 at the break.

Cleghorn dragged Spurs back into the game at the start of the second half but another Smith goal and Crawford completion of his treble saw Stow run out easy winners.
