Classic Match - Martin's treble downs Magpies

Alvin Martin's unique hat-trick helped West Ham United's Boys of '86 score a fantastic 8-1 win over Newcastle United.

The Hammers were challenging for the Division One title when the Magpies arrived at the Boleyn Ground on Monday 21 April 1986 - and ran into a Claret and Blue juggernaut led by centre-back Martin.

With the visitors using three different goalkeepers due to injury, the England international took advantage to score past all three as West Ham romped to an emphatic success - Ray Stewart, Neil Orr, Frank McAvennie, Paul Goddard and a Glenn Roeder own-goal being the other scorers.
