Haddow's five hat-tricks

Post by bonxie » Tue Oct 28, 2008 10:10 pm

I read on this site that an Alex Haddow of Kings Park scored five consecutive hat-tricks in the 1930s. Who was he and what happened to him?

Have you a link to this? I've seen this player referred to as Johnny Haddow, Jock Haddow & Alex Haddow. Litster gives this player's career as Rangers (Nov 1927), Dumbarton (May 1928), King's Park (August 1931), Dumbarton again (August 1933), Falkirk (November 1935), Dumbarton again (undated and doesn't appear to have played for them again) and Leith Athletic (May 1936).

Playing either as a left-winger or centre-forward it was on the wing that he made his only appearance for Rangers in a 2-1 league win over Partick Thistle in January 1928. Haddow was a prolific scorer at Dumbarton, top scoring in the league five times in all, his best being 33 in 1933-34. All told he scored 107 league goals for the Sons. Within a month of signing for Falkirk he scored a hat-trick for the Bairns at Boghead.

After retiring from playing Haddow became trainer at Dumbarton.

Thanks for the reply. I have no link to this, just a curiosity about a player scoring 5 hat-tricks in a row - I thought he must have aroused the attention of some of the big clubs but obviously not as so little appears to be written about him
