New striker for playoff push
Eifion Williams scored a debut hat-trick for Torquay in one of Chris Turner's first matches as Pools manager. The match left an impression on Turner and Pools were often linked with the Welsh striker over the next couple of years. Turner finally got his man, and Williams made his debut as a substitute on this day in 2002.
