DIDCOT Town finished the season in 12th place after an excellent 2-0 win at Mangotsfield in Division 1 South & West.

Second-half goals from Josh Dutton-Black and Matt Woodley sealed victory for the visitors, who were bottom just before Christmas.

Didcot’s John Mills was put through on goal early on, but Kevin Sawyer did well to stop the advancing striker.

Tom Parrinello had the hosts’ best chance just before half-time, heading just wide from a cross.

Mills looked likely to break the deadlock for the visitors in the second half, but his free header was straight at Sawyer.

Sawyer denied Mills again before Didcot took the lead on 79 minutes.

Mills cut the ball back to Dutton-Black who cooly slotted past Sawyer.

The visitors sealed the win late on when sub Woodley tapped home after more good work from Mills.

Didcot: A Williams, Elkins, S Parish, Baines, Carnell, Heapy, Dutton-Black, L Williams (McKirnan 67), Longford, Mills (J Parish 89), Whitehead (Woodley 73) Subs not used: Thomas, McLoughlin.

Attendance: 125.
