Four hat-tricks that brought Charlton away-day success

Tariqe Fosu became the 49th man to bag a senior hat-trick for Charlton when he cracked home three goals against Fleetwood Town on Saturday afternoon.

The treble, which was scored with one header, one left-footed strike and one right-footed strike, secured the Addicks a 3-1 win that moved them up to fifth in the League One table. 

The hat-trick also made him the third Charlton player to have scored three goals in a single match this calendar year and, as a result, we have dipped into the Valley Pass archive to take a look back at four away-trebles from the past….  

Carl Leaburn v Ipswich Town (September 1995)

A hat-trick from Carl Leaburn helped the Addicks to thrash Ipswich Town 5-1 on a memorable away day in East Anglia.

Leaburn scored a treble, including one from the spot, whilst defender Phil Chapple and midfielder Paul Linger chipped in with a goal each as well.

The result gave the Addicks a first win in four league games, and ultimately those three points helped Charlton finish sixth, just inside the First Division play-off places.

Leaburn would end the season with nine goals, behind only top scorer Lee Bowyer, who impressed with 14 from midfield.

Clive Mendonca v Norwich City (September 1997)

A Clive Mendonca hat-trick led Charlton to a fantastic away day against Norwich City, thumping them 4-0 at Carrow Road.

Mendonca had only scored once in the opening five league games of the season before the trip to East Anglia, but burst into life in style, with defender Phil Chapple grabbing the other goal.

Mendonca would repeat the feat at the most important time later that season - the play-off final, which ended 4-4 against Sunderland, before Charlton won it 7-6 on penalties.

Charlton had finished regular season in fourth place, with an impressive tally of 88 points, before seeing off Ipswich in the semi-final.

Andy Hunt v Stockport County (February 2000)

Andy Hunt became the first ever Addick to net hat-tricks in successive away matches when he buried a treble against Stockport County at Edgeley Park in February 2000.

Hunt had scored a hat-trick against Norwich City at Carrow Road in the previous week, and repeated the feat to give Charlton another three points.

Stockport had led before two goals just before the break from Hunt turned things around, with the striker completing his treble in the 88th minute.

Incidentally, Hunt scored a hat-trick against Stockport in both the home and away league fixtures that season.

Plenty of other clubs struggled to deal with Hunt that season - he scored 24 goals from 43 starts as the Addicks returned to the Premier League at the first attempt.

Callum Harriott v Blackpool (May 2014)

Academy graduate Callum Harriott gave Charlton fans a wonderful day at the seaside to finish the 2013/14 season, with a second-half hat-trick in a 3-0 victory against Blackpool.

The then 20-year-old, who scored his first just after the hour mark, was teed up by Jon Obika for the second inside the final ten minutes, before securing the match-ball with his third in stoppage time.

The hat-trick made it five goals that week for Harriott, who had scored a double in a 3-1 victory over Watford on Tuesday.

Charlton finished 18th in the Championship table, with Blackpool ending 20th; the home side only just avoiding relegation from the second tier.
