Leanne scores a Hat-trick:

 Fresh from receiving the Anglo Celt ‘Sportsperson of the Year’ award last week, Leanne Kiernan got back to the hustle and bustle of playing for West Ham Utd on Sunday last. Leanne scored a hat-trick, on her return to the starting 11, in the 8—1 defeat of Huddersfield Town Ladies—which was the pinnacle of a fantastic afternoon at Rush Green Stadium with Kate Longhurst, Alisha Lehmann, Jane Ross, Rosie Kmita and Brianna Visalli also getting on the scoresheet to put the Irons into the quarter-finals of the SSE Women’s FA Cup. West Ham manager, Matt Beard said after the game, “I’m really pleased for Leanne. She had her injury problems over the last few months so for her to get the start today was terrific, and she’s taken her chance.” Well done Leanne and hoping that the rest of the season goes well for you.
