Billy Sharp: Beyond Brave

Billy scored a goal for Doncaster Rovers last night, after insisting he was ready to play in his side’s 3-1 defeat to Middlesbrough despite the death of his two-day-old son Luey Jacob on Saturday. A minute’s silence was admirably observed by both sets of fans prior to the fixture and when he struck in the fourteenth minute, Billy lifted his shirt over his head to reveal the slogan ‘That’s For You, Son’. He was not booked by the referee for the gesture.
