Striker bangs in 10 goals for local side in FAI Junior Cup clash
Martin O'Neill, take note - if you're in the market for a free-scoring forward whose nationality is not in question, look no further than Paul Quilty.
The Waterford Hibernians striker scored a remarkable 10 goals in an FAI Junior Cup second round match on Sunday as his side finished up 13-nil winners against Mooncoin FC.
Striker Quilty was in devastating form as he scored the perfect hat-trick – three times over, with interest.
The striker, who spent a couple of years with Waterford United, scored three with his head, three with his right leg and four with his left as he turned in a double digit display.

The Hibs hitman was presented with the match ball at the end of the game as a memento of the occasion – a feat unlikely to be equalled or surpassed anytime soon.
“It was a brilliant display and he fully deserved his tally,” said Noel O’Keeffe of the Waterford Junior League who was at the game.
“Some of his headed goals were excellent – all the more so in that he’s only five foot two or three,” added O’Keefe, whose son Mark played up front with the prolific Quilty.
