It was the stuff of dreams for Tring Athletic striker Vinnie Iannone on Tuesday night as he came off the bench to score an 18-minute hat-trick and send his side through to the next round of the FA Cup.
With the scores locked at 0-0 in the extra preliminary round replay, Iannone was introduced from the bench to fire his side past a stubborn Cogenhoe United side.
The striker headed home to put his side in front, before acrobatically lashing in the second with his right foot just two minutes later – an early contender for goal of the season.
Not done there, Iannone added a third – this time with his left foot – to complete his hat-trick and send Athletic flying through to the next round.
Tring will travel to Calor League Division 1 Central side North Greenford United who play at the level above them in the football pyramid.
