A Hatters Hat-Trick Hero

A Hatters Hat-Trick Hero

Yesterday (Saturday) James Collins made his Football League debut for Luton Town.

With Danny Hylton side-lined by injury, the Hatters support were looking for the striker, signed from Crawley Town, to hit the ground running.

In the space of sixty-nine minutes of action, Collins did more than that, he`s established himself as a Hatters hero.

The player showed that the 20+ goals he scored for Crawley Town last season was no fluke, by bagging a hat-trick on his Luton debut as the Hatters crushed Yeovil Town 8-2.

After the game, a very pleased Collins spoke to the local media and this is what he had to say about his debut-day hat-trick,

"I've scored on a few of my debuts before, but never a hat-trick, so it's a first again for me.

"I've only ever had three in my career, but today was probably by favourite as it was for my new club in front of a good crowd and we also got three points, so I'll take today over the other three.

"To get a hat-trick at any stage in your career us a good achievement, so to get it on your first game for your new club in front of a full crowd and in front of your family and friends, is something to cherish."

Let`s hope this is the start of something big for James Collins and Luton Town as we seek to climb out of League Two and into League One.
