Cup dream alive for Hooper

18 February 2009 04:56
Scunthorpe United hero Gary Hooper was excited at the prospect of a trip to Wembley after his goal secured a 3-0 aggregate win over Rotherham in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. The 21-year-old scored his 21st goal of the season to end the Millers' vain hopes of producing an unlikely upset against a Scunthorpe team flying high in League One. "I thought it was a good performance, we defended really well, had a few chances and I took mine - I was pleased with the finish," Hooper told the club's official website. "I've never played at Wembley before and it will be a good game for us, the fans and our families. I just hope we can get our hands on the cup by beating Luton."
