Hampton's double hat-trick

On this day in 1910, Harry Hampton hit his second hat-trick in the space of 24 hours.

Villa’s record league scorer had netted three in a 4-2 win against Middlesbrough on Good Friday and he hit another three in the 4-1 victory over Bury on Easter Saturday. Villa went on to win the title, finishing five points clear of Liverpool.
