BRIDLINGTON Town striker Craig Hogg had 101 reasons to celebrate after his team thumped Hall Road Rangers last Wednesday evening.

The hot-shot from Hull hit a hat-trick at Dene Park, with his second goal being his 100th for the Seasiders.

Town manager Mitch Cook said: “We are delighted when any player reaches a milestone. Look at his record over the years, you know that if he gets a chance there is a strong chance he is going to take it.

“He has done it regularly over the past three years, and to have a player like Craig in your team is such an asset. I know he had to wait a little while to get to his 100th goal for us, but hopefully he can relax now.”

Hogg joined Bridlington during the title-winning 2009/10 season, arriving from neighbours Scarborough Athletic, where he had grabbed a further 47 goals.

Chairman Peter Smurthwaite presented Hogg with a silver salver to mark his achievement after Saturday’s home match with Maltby Main.

Smurthwaite said: “Craig has had a phenomenal record in the time he has been with us.

“He has also shown fantastic loyalty to stay with us even though he has been under pressure on a regular basis to sign for other teams.”
