VIDEO: Palace’s Anderson Bags A Hat-Trick On First Start For Northampton 

0 Posted by - January 29, 2017 - News, Video

Keshi Anderson recently began a loan spell with League One Northampton Town, making a huge impression against Coventry City yesterday when netting a 23-minute hat-trick. 

This video shows all three of Keshi’s quick-fire goals for the Cobblers. The youngster is proving to be rather prolific. 

Having already enjoyed a short-term stint with fellow third tier outfit Bolton Wanderers earlier in the campaign, Anderson was understandably keen to hit the ground running at his new club; a challenge which he has passed with flying colours by netting a hat-trick on his first start for them. 

Anderson is yet to make a first-team appearance for Palace since joining from Barton Rovers in 2015 but Alan Pardew was always very keen to stress the potential in the youngster’s game, a statement backed up by the fact that he now has an impressive seven goals in just 21 games across three separate loan spells with Doncaster, Bolton and Northampton over the last 15 months.

Still only 21, the frontman will be hoping that a string of eye-catching performances in League One can alert new Palace boss Sam Allardyce to his potential as the former England gaffer searches for ways in which to turn the club’s dismal form around between now and May. 

Of course, goals in the third tier don’t always equate to a similar return when thrown into the pressure-cooker atmosphere of the top flight but as you can see from the video attached above, Keshi has the sort of eye for goal that, according to “eternal wisdom” of people inside the game, cannot necessarily be coached into the mental make-up of a striker. 

When watching the attached highlights you will notice that Keshi’s third goal of the day was assisted by fellow Palace loanee Hiram Boateng who is also desperately hoping to impress Big Sam whilst at Sixfields. After actively searching for a physically imposing defensive midfielder in the transfer market this week, it might be worth the boss taking a closer look at Hiram; he does have all the raw attributes to be a success in that role with the right level of coaching and care. 

Enjoy.

    Couldn’t agree more. When you look at the stupid prices being paid for frankly average players, it makes no sense to ignore the youngsters staring you in the face. What’s the old adage, “if they are good enough then they are old enough”. Rashford was possibly a risk but look how he has progressed. We used to pride ourselves on being a team that brought through youngsters, but they all just disappear on loan now, some never to be seen again. Croll, Boateng and Kaikai could all sit comfortably in the current squad for me and surely Andersons goal scoring can’t continue to go unnoticed.
