Jimmy Spencer hit a stunning hat-trick to move Farsley Celtic three points clear at the top of the Evo-Stik League Premier Division following a 4-0 victory at Grantham Town, the Yorkshire Evening Post report.
Spencer gave Celtic the lead after 25 minutes as he controlled Will Hayhurst’s cross and fired back across goal past Sam Andrews.
Just two minutes into the second-half, Farsley made it 2-0, as Ben Atkinson slipped the ball through to Spencer who coolly slotted the ball home. Spencer then wrapped up his hat-trick with his 25th goal of the season, picking the ball up 25-yards out and rifling home. Nathan Cartman completed the scoring by tapping in from close range.
Celtic boss Adam Lakeland said after the game: “It was a great performance by everybody, obviously Jimmy’s the one who’ll get the plaudits for scoring a hat-trick, and it was a great hat-trick, his third goal in particular was fantastic.
“I said to the lads after the game that for every goal we scored today the work rate and the pressing for us to win the ball back and then release people to score was outstanding.”
