John Mills helped himself to four goals as Didcot Town stormed to victory at the Southern League Division 1 South & West basement boys.

The results sees the Railwaymen go third in the table.

After withstanding early pressure from the hosts, Didcot took the lead.

Mills charged forward before curling his shot past Paul Tassell in the Cleeve goal.

At the other end, Didcot’s Adam Learoyd made a last-ditch tackle on Joe Tustain, before his side doubled their lead.

Jamie Lock’s header to Tassell was intercepted by Sam Elkins who headed in from a tight angle.

Shortly before the break, Mills doubled his tally when he latched onto a James Organ pass before firing in.

Right on half-time, Mills completed his treble when he headed home a cross from James Organ.

Bishops Cleeve tried to restore some pride in the second half, but were unable to test James Foster in the Didcot goal.

Mills should have had a fourth when he was put in, but the striker shot wide.

However, the hot-shot didn’t have to wait long for No 4 when another mix up allowed Mills to round Callum Preece and score into an empty net for 5-0.

Mills spurned the chance for his fifth goal, as Didcot ended the game at a canter.

Didcot Tn: Foster, Heapy (Parish 72), Organ, Baines, Carnell, Learoyd, Elkins, Clarks, Mills, Abrahart (Dutton-Black 78), Whitehead (McKirnan 64). Subs not used: Self, Williams.
