Hat-trick ace Robyn
ROBYN Hartley scored a stunning hat trick as Town Ladies Development side dominated in a 5-1 win over Newcastle United Reserves.
Katie Halligan gave Town the lead on five after Ella McCamon flicked on a corner.
Keeper Isobel Pare could do nothing with the equaliser, but Town went ahead again with the best goal of the game – Sharone Bucklke, Laura Walker and McCamon combining to set up Hartley for a cracking finish.
Hartley doubled her tally after more good build-up play from McCamon, Beth Allen and Halligan and Town kept their momentum.
Hartley completed her hat trick on 55 minutes before new signing Liuli Dyson was introduced 15 minutes from the end and scored with a clever lob.
