NEW Northamp­ton boss Keith Curle be­lieves mid­fielder Matt Crooks pos­sesses “un­told abil­ity and tal­ent”.

Former Ac­cring­ton and Rangers man Crooks, 24, scored a first-half hat-trick as the Cob­blers crushed Mac­cles­field 5-0 at Moss Rose.

“The lad’s got un­told abil­ity, un­told tal­ent and he’s got the abil­ity to do that from any­where on the pitch,” said Curle fol­low­ing the em­phatic away vic­tory.

“Against Mac­cles­field he un­der­stood his role, slot­ted in on the right­hand side and still had the free­dom to ex­press him­self in front of goal.”
