Davies Makes Barnsley History

Striker makes Barnsley history

On Saturday against Birmingham City, Craig Davies made a little piece of Barnsley history as he helped the Tykes to a 5-0 victory.

The 26-year-old also became the first Reds player to score four goals away from home since Abe Blight against Accrington in 1934.

Davies has, however, become the first player to score four in one half away from home.

The last Barnsley player to score four in one match was David Currie, including a penalty, in a 5-2 home win over Bournemouth in November 1988.

Despite Davies' hat-trick arriving over the space of 11 minutes, Trevor Aylott actually boasts the quickest hat-trick over a space of time, he struck three times in the space of eight minutes against Hull City in November 1980.
