Mortensen's Hat-Trick Record Remains

FA Confirms Blackpool Man Still Holds Wembley Final Achievement

19 May 2019

Blackpool's Stan Mortensen remains the only player to have scored a hat-trick in an FA Cup final at Wembley, it has now been confirmed.

Manchester City's second goal in yesterday's final against Watford has been officially credited to Jesus, as opposed to Raheem Sterling who went on to score a brace.  

A review of the goal has ensured that Mortensen's long-standing achievement, which came in 1953 when Blackpool lifted the trophy, retains its place in the history books.
