WATCH: Former Swansea player scores superb hat trick in three minutes

Form is temporary; class is permanent.

Whoever first said that must have had former Swansea footballer Lee Trundle in mind, because he proved his class at the weekend.

The former Swansea player still works as a youth team coach and ambassador for the Welsh side, but these days he plays his football with Welsh Football League Division Two side Llanelli Town AFC.

Jump to 2 minutes for the second goal and 3m20 for the third

Trundle was a Soccer AM favourite during his days in the higher leagues and, judging by this clip, he still knows how to turn on the style.

Llanelli were drawing tied 2-2 with Abregavenny Town and with the game heading into injury time it looked like they would have to settle for a share of the points.

But then Trundle, who turns 40 next month, popped up to score not once but three times inside three minutes to give his side the win.

He started by scoring from a free kick, then created a second himself and finished with a lob - top notch stuff!

With thanks to Llanelli Town AFC for the clip.
