Kole Hall marked his return from injury in spectacular fashion to help Vanarama National League North side Chester advance in the Emirates FA Cup.

The Bermuda forward came off the bench and seized his opportunity by scoring twice in the 4-0 drubbing of hosts Hanley Town in a third qualifying round replay at Potteries Park on Wednesday.

“Happy to come back from injury with a brace and help the team [to the] next round of the FA Cup,” Hall posted on his Twitter account.

Hall was making his first appearance in Calum McIntyre’s team since limping off injured in a goalless draw away to Buxton in the league on September 24

Kurt Willoughby, the Chester striker, broke the deadlock in the 56th minute with a composed finish.

Hall entered the fray in the 70th minute and doubled Chester’s lead with his first touch of the ball with a stunning strike which left the goalkeeper no chance.

The 24-year-old then put the match further beyond the hosts reach in the 83rd minute when he pounced on a loose ball in the area for his third tally of the season.

Willoughby grabbed his second shortly after to wrap up proceedings.

The initial cup tie at Chester’s Deva Stadium last Saturday ended in a goalless stalemate.

Hall and his team-mates will hit the road again to face National League side Oldham Athletic in the fourth round of the competition on October 15.

Hall signed with Vanarama National League North side Chester in June and opened his goal tally with a brilliant solo effort in a hard fought 2-0 win over Brackley Town in their home league opener in August.
