Hat-trick hero Wall now look­ing to Euro climb

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

HAT-TRICK star Luke Wall was named Ban­gor City’s man of the match against Peny­dar­ren.

As well as scor­ing three goals, the winger helped set up two oth­ers in his team’s 7-0 Welsh Cup quar­ter-fi­nal suc­cess.

Wall said: “I don’t re­ally score that of­ten, so I was over the moon to score three. It was their cup fi­nal, so it was im­por­tant we got the win.”

Asked whether he or fel­low tre­ble-hit­ter Yves Zama would claim the match-ball, Wall said: “I think I’ll take it; Zama’s a striker but I’m a winger so I think I de­serve it today.”

A for­mer Black­burn Rovers trainee who signed a one-year pro­fes­sional deal with the Lancashire club ahead of the 2015/16 sea­son, Liver­pool-born Wall was re­leased a year later and joined Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley in July 2016. With first team opportunities lim­ited at the Wham Sta­dium, he was loaned to Skelmers­dale United, Clitheroe, and Ma­rine in the Evo-Stik North­ern Premier League be­fore his move to Ban­gor City in June 2017. Wall has im­pressed at Nant­porth, net­ting eight goals so far this sea­son. He is now look­ing forward to tak­ing on Bala this week­end in a cru­cial bat­tle in the race for Europe.

“It’s a big game,” he said. “We must get the three points. We’ve just got to play like we did today and we’ll give our­selves a great chance of three points.”
