ANDY Forrest isn’t in the habit of scoring hat-tricks, but when he scores them he likes to score against the same team.
And that’s exactly what he did, when he thumped home three goals against Instonians on Saturday, bringing their unbeaten run in the league to a halt.
The Lisnagarvey striker has been somewhat living in the shadow of Garvey’s Irish International forward, Timmy Cockram. But with Cockram unavailable, due to international commitments, Forrest stepped up the mark, to show how much his game has come on since joining Garvey two seasons ago from North Down.
“That’s only my second hat-trick for Garvey and my last one was ironically against Inst and I don’t know what you can read into that,” beamed Forrest.
“I’m just delighted at scoring, especially a hat-trick, but it was a very good team performance, especially in the last 15 minutes, when we turned it on more than we had in the first part of the game.
“We are doing a lot of work on fitness and I think it showed in the later stage of the game. Inst are a very good side and I think they will be up there competing at the end of the year. But it was good to get a 4-1 win and three very valuable points.”
