From Wembley wizard to hat-trick hero ... striker Alex Revell banged in three goals as Rotherham United had fun in the sun at Parkgate FC.
The Millers triumphed 9-1 in the baking heat at Parkgate’s Green Lane complex in front of nearly 1,000 fans.
It was the workout boss Steve Evans was looking for as his men found their goal touch and improved their fitness levels with a gruelling workout.
Revell, scorer of a wonder goal at Wembley in last season’s League One Play-off Final, scored in the sixth, 12th and 76th minute, with others coming from a Matt Derbyshire penalty, an own goal, Kari Arnason, Ryan Hall, Richard Wood and sub Jerry Yates.
The non-league men never stopped trying and received their reward in the 90th minute when Scott Whittington scored a consolation.
Another Millers XI lost 2-1 at Tamworth.
Millers v Parkgate: Collin (Denton 90), Rowe, Skarz, Aranason, Wood, Rose, Green, Frecklington (Wiles 89), Revell, Derbyshire (Yates H-T), Hall (Warren 86).
