Whalley’s Joe Garner hit the first hat-trick of his career on Tuesday night, to fire Preston North End to an FA Cup fourth round tie against his former club Nottingham Forest.

The former Carlisle United striker came off the bench just after the hour mark at Deepdale, and netted three goals in 21 minutes to send Ipswich Town packing 3-2.
