Summer signing Nicolas Anelka bagged a hat-trick as West Bromwich Albion thumped League of Ireland Premier side Cork City 6-0.

The Frenchman netted in the 25th, 47th and 63rd minutes to take his tally to six goals in as many pre-season matches for his new side.

Graham Dorrans scored twice, netting just before half-time and in the 77th minute, while Shane Long was also on the scoresheet, notching just after the interval.
