Sharpshooters – Hat Tricks

According to Wikipedia a hat-trick is described as follows:

“A hat-trick or hat trick in sport is the achievement of a positive feat three times during a game, or other achievements based on threes. A hat-trick occurs in association football when a player scores three goals in a single game. In common with other official record-keeping rules, goals in a penalty shootout are excluded from the tally”

James Clancy became the first Ballingarry AFC player to score a hat-trick for the club when he scored all three goals in their 3-0 win against Broadford United B during a division 2B fixture at Broadford during the 1984-85 season. Below is a list of players to achieve this feat for the club.
