Gregory Hat-Trick Secures Youth Victory

21 September 2015

Youth Team Beat Burnley

Kit Gregory hit a hat-trick as Blackpool youth defeated Lancashire rivals Burnley 3-1 on Saturday.

The attacking midfielder, 17, scored his first two goals inside two minutes of each other in the 35th and 37th minute to put Ciaran Donnelly's side in a comfortable position.

Burnley pulled a goal back in the 75th minute to try and set things up for a grandstand finish, however Gregory fired in his third goal five minutes before full-time to secure the victory.

"It was our best performance of the season," Academy Manager Ciaran Donnelly commented. "We were excellent from start to finish and it was great for Kit to score a hat-trick and take the match ball home signed by the players.

"We're now in a good position in the league and have a big test away at Walsall this weekend. If the lads continue to show the same work ethic and determination then we're capable of having a good season."
