SWINDON Town striker Harry Parsons netted an eight-minute hat-trick for loan club Chippenham Town on Saturday.

The 19-year-old Swindon forward helped his new team to a 4-1 success at home to Dorking Wanderers in National League South.

In a fantastic day for both Swindon Town and Chippenham Town, Parsons’ fellow loanee Ricky Aguiar capped off the Bluebirds’ win by scoring the fourth goal late on.

Chippenham manager Mike Cook was pleased to see both his and Parsons’ hard work pay off after the club’s second home league win in succession.

Cook felt the positive result for his team had been a long time coming given the standard of performance which had regularly occured.

But with a lack of goals leading to draws or defeats, the Bluebirds’ boss was delighted to see his two Swindon recruits play a significant part in bringing an end to that sequence.

Discussing the impact of Aguiar and Parsons on Saturday, Cook said: “They came up trumps for us. It was worth going to watch them play – I don’t like taking loans blind anyway – but when we’ve seen them play they did really well.

“With someone like Harry, he was getting into the positions to score the goals but not quite getting the ball over the line. It was nice to see him score a lovely hat-trick last weekend.

“We’ve spoken about trying to get more shots off, and we worked on it in training as well.

“He’s literally had two weeks of training which has been geared towards the forwards because we can’t keep playing like we were, creating lots of opportunities but not scoring the goals.”

Cook was delighted to see his plan work to perfection as Chippenham regularly exposed the spaces in behind the Dorking defence.

And despite Matt Briggs’ consolation goal just before the break, Chippenham remained in complete control as the Bluebirds saw out their fifth win of the season.

Cook said: “It was pretty comfortable for us. They were everything we expected them to be.

“This week, our game plan worked extremely well. It doesn’t always work that well every week, but with our tactics and strategies we knew they were going to be very narrow with a back three.

“We knew if we could nick the ball in midfield then with Ola Lawal and Harry Parsons up front we had an opportunity to get some shots off, and that proved to be the case.”
