WHITEHILL Welfare striker Jack Wright set a new Lowland League record with a four-minute hat-trick to secure his team's second win of the season.

The 20-year-old son of former Scotland striker Keith Wright netted three times in 237 seconds as Welfare beat Gala Fairydean Rovers 5-2 at Netherdale.

The former Cowdenbeath player said: “You don’t usually get as many chances in such a short space of time and I’m delighted that I took the three of them.

“To be honest I should maybe have had one or two more today.

“We haven’t had the best of starts this season as we are a new team but we are getting better each week and today’s win will take us the table.”

William Kid and Gary Nicholson were Whitehill’s other scorers.

Gala's consolations were scored by Lewis Swaney and George Windram.
