Hastings United 2, Guernsey FC 3
Saturday 14th September 2013, 5:12PM BST.
Ross Allen’s hat-trick dramatically fired Guernsey FC into the FA Cup second qualifying round 3-2 at the expense of Hastings United.
Allen kept his nerve from the penalty spot deep into stoppage time to win it after a handball, after Hastings had levelled it at 2-2 just minutes earlier.
That was the second time GFC had been pegged back, having also led at 1-0 through Allen’s early strike and his latest treble took his tally to seven in his last four.
The draw for the second qualifying round is on Monday.
