Jarrow Roofing captain Donnelly subbed and straight to hospital to become dad

There was a substitution with a difference 31 minutes into Jarrow Roofing FC's Tuesday evening game with Bishop Auckland. Defender and captain Darryll Donnelly was replaced by Paul Gardiner so he could make a dash to the hospital for the birth of his daughter.

The Roofers were beaten 2-1 in their EBAC Northern League Division One clash but much better news came on the night as Darryll and partner Jasmin welcomed baby Lyla Grace Donnelly.
