Pope and glory
TREBLE YELL: Pope takes the plaudits after sealing his hat-trick at Troon on Saturday
HAT-TRICK hero Gordon Pope admits his Ayrshire Weekly Press Cup Final heroics on Saturday have capped the most memorable season of his career.
The former Dundee United and Montrose defender struck a treble at Troon's Portland Park to help dump the home side 5-1 and seal Bot's second trophy of the campaign.
Pope, from Catrine, said: "I think that's something like 17 goals I have scored from defence which is my biggest tally in a season."
