A player score a hatrick in consecutive games?
17:01, Mon 11 Feb
Don't think so. Google says Alex Govan got 5 in one season while Joe Bradford got 13 in his Blues career.

Colin Robinson ?

Ask Number 8, he'll know
17:04, Mon 11 Feb
Che Adams
Donaldson got close a few years back.

5 in 2 games.

Alex Govan did.

5 September 1956 - in a 6-1 win against Newcastle.
8 September - in a 3-0 win against PNE.

May have been done more recently.

Ah right that was the season he got the 5 hat tricks in then.

Paul Furlong got two in January 1998 against Stoke (7-0) and Stockport (4-1). They weren't consecutive games however.
17:35, Mon 11 Feb
Also Jonathan Hunt got two close together in 1994. First was at Peterborough (5-3 in the AWS), then at home to Crewe (5-0).

Diamond Wheldon v Lincoln (W 4-3) 07/01/1893, and v Northwich Victoria (W 6-2) 14/01/1893.

Our first year in the Football League, when we won Div 2 but lost the play-offs (or Test Matches as they were called then).

And yes Rab, Artist, Southside et al, of course I was there.

Joe Bradford v Newcastle (W 5-1) 21/9/1929 and v Blackburn (L5-7!) 28/09/1929.

He actually got 3 hat-tricks in 4 games in that run, as he got three in a 4-3 win against Pompey on 29th August so that’s 3 hat-tricks on successive Saturdays. Undfotunately he failed to score against Burnley on Tuesday 1st September. He actually scored 13 in the first seven matches of the season, not bad for a winger, but only (!) 11 in his last 24. That was all in Division 1. He also got four in the FA Cup, including a hat-trick against Southend (W 6-1).

Stats like that yet maybe more famous for Keep Right On. What a legend. KRO Alex.

Indeed. For all of his skill and ability (and he’s a player that I admire) you couldn’t see Jota scoring with such regularity from the wing.

Different style of play in those days, I suppose, but it must have been unusual for a winger to be so prolific, even then.

Looking like Alex was the last one to do it.

One after him

worth noting that back in the 50`s there was regularly scorelines like 8-0 or 9-2 think a few years before that they even had 10 and 12 scored.

So fair to say Defenses have tightened up a tad. lol

Think you’re right WB - I was looking through the Matthews book. My version goes up to 1995, and I’m pretty sure it hasn’t happened since then.

Good luck Che! You have the chance to join a select, and tiny, group tomorrow.

I still don't understand how we lost that game 5-7. We were all over 'em, but they kept scoring on the counter attack. Strangest game I've ever seen.

Bob Latchford did in 1973, against Ipswich in league cup and Leicester in league
