Very proud of fast hat-trick - Amber
 Women's Football News 28 Jan 2013
Very proud of fast hat-trick - Amber - 28 Jan 2013 - Women's Football NewsAmber Coates has reflected on her recent remarkable scoring feat in scoring a hat-trick for Bitton in the opening four and a half minutes of their match against AEK Boco. 
The 24-year-old striker put her side three goals ahead with virtually her first three touches of the ball and set them on their way to an 8-3 victory in their local derby.
Although there have been faster hat-tricks during the course of matches, there can have been few quicker from the start of a game and may even be a women's football record.
Amber's achievement is all the more impressive when considering that it didn't come against a side at the bottom of the league or a lower division club in a cup tie, but actually in a top of the table clash in the Gloucestershire County Women's League.
"I'm very proud," a delighted Amber told Women's Soccer Scene. "We needed a quick start and managed to get three as a team. I didn't do it on my own, but it was a really good start for us.
"Our intention was to take the game to Boco as they were top of the league and we were in second, and I think we did a very good job."
The hat-trick, and ultimately the victory, was extra special for Amber as AEK Boco are one of her former teams, along with Bristol Academy. "Yes, they [Boco] are my old club but I am Bitton through and through now," she smiles.
When recalling her three goals, Amber admitted that things happened very quickly and had no idea of the significance of her early strikes.
"The first one was a tap in, in the first minute of the game," she said. "The next one came through a lob as I went through on goal and the third was another tap in from close range.
"It didn't occur to me at that time, exactly what I had done. I was just chuffed by what had happened - we had got them a few minutes into the game, which was amazing. Boco did play well, it was just that we played better."
Bitton finished third in the league last season and missed out on promotion by a single point but this time around, they sit in the same position with an unbeaten record and have games in hand on the teams above them, AEK Boco and Cheltenham Civil Service.
Along with leading scorer Megan Bloomer and Kylie Allen, twice the league's top scorer in recent years, Amber completes a formidable forward line but she insists that there is far more to the team that that.
"We're a good team, every player in the squad is a really good one," she said. "We've got so much potential and I think we will definitely go up this season - I am really confident we can do so.
"Our manager Paul Passaway has been a massive help to us. I played for the county under his charge and I knew when I came back it would be a good season for us.
"We can definitely go up and up in the future. "We've got the facilities and we've got the players here at Bitton - the sky's the limit!"
