Striker Allen hits another hat-trick as Guernsey win

Ross Allen is congratulated by his Guernsey FC teammates
Ross Allen has now scored 17 goals in Guernsey's last nine matches

Guernsey assistant boss Colin Fallaize praised striker Ross Allen's team work after his sixth hat-trick of the season helped the Green Lions beat Cobham 6-1.

Allen's hat-trick, along with a double for Matt Loaring and one for Kieron Mahon, sealed victory at Footes Lane.

The only blight was Guernsey conceding their first home league goal of the season, Pat Kirby levelling after Mahon's third-minute opener.

Guernsey lead the Combined Counties League Division One by 10 points.

And Allen has now scored 39 goals to help his team stretch so far clear at the top.

"Ross has been consistent," Fallaize told BBC Guernsey. "In the last 18 months, he's changed as a player.

"He's physically a lot stronger. His involvement in the game is completely different.

"When he's been playing at club level he does a lot of stuff himself. Here, he's become a very, very focused team man.

"His goals are absolutely excellent, but he does an awful lot of work and the team do a lot of work for him."
