Didcot Tn 3, Bishops Cleeve 1: Two second-half goals from striker Scott Taylor brought cup final glory for Didcot Town at Fairford on Saturday.

Their success in the Hellenic League Cup helped to ease Didcot's disappointment at their failure to win the Premier Division title.

Despite a steady downpour that made the pitch difficult for the players, it proved to be a thrilling game.

Didcot adapted better to the conditions early on.

Taylor burst into the Cleeve box in the first minute, only for Richard Clark to clear the danger.

Cleeve's first shot on goal almost saw them take the lead, Billy Davis's shot past Didcot keeper Richard Knight rebounded off the far post and away to safety.

Then Knight made an excellent block to deny Cleeve midfielder Pete Moss.

Didcot slowly came back into the game and only a superb save from Cleeve keeper Dan Logan denied Paul Powell.

Moments later Cleeve took the lead. Town defender Grant Goodall misplaced a backpass, and Andy Keveren stole in to clip the ball past Knight.

It looked like Town would go into the break a goal behind. But a moment of Powell magic changed the complexion of the game in the 43rd minute.

After beating John Hills on the edge of the box, he unleashed a stunning shot which Logan did well to block, but Ian Concannon was on hand to turn the ball home from three yards.

Didcot took only three second-half minutes to go ahead.

A wonderful pass from Powell found Taylor inside the box. Logan did well to save his first shot, but Taylor drove the rebound into the net.

It almost got even better for Didcot two minutes later. Taylor was again involved and his superb pass put Concannon clean through, but Logan produced a stunning block to keep his side in the game.

Mike Ford combined well with Concannon, only to fire wide, before Powell's shot grazed a post.

Logan then produced the save of the game to keep out Taylor midway through the half.

But there was no denying Taylor 15 minutes from time.

Ford showed great vision to find Powell on the left, and after Logan had again saved at full stretch, it was Taylor who pounced to make it 3-1.

Didcot's large travelling support celebrated at the final whistle, and after the presentation of the cup to skipper Mike Ford, the party began.
