James Sunderland’s hat-trick inspired FC Halifax Town U19s to a 4-1 home victory over Maltby Main U19s as they maintained their unbeaten run of form.
Sunderland’s three goals as well as a strike from Liam Healey secured the win for Halifax with Maltby scoring a constellation through striker Lewis Szanto.
The treble for Sunderland means he has now scored eight goals in his last six matches in all competitions whilst Healey registered his third goal of the season.
Another three points also means that Mark Trueman’s side are now level on points with 2nd placed South Shields after their scheduled match with Farsley Celtic was postponed earlier today.
