Geoff Neill celebrated his return from injury with a weekend hat-trick to help Bourneview Mill home with three points.

Derby delight arrived against Lurgan Town - with Jeff McClure also on target in the Mill’s 4-2 victory.

Neill’s first appearance in almost two months proved memorable for the player and team, with Dale Compton also back in the side following injury issues and assured overall.

David Crawford produced a penalty save with Bourneview leading by 2-1 on an afternoon which also handed Gary Hill welcome minutes in his recovery from injury.

“Our work-rate was fantastic,” said Mill manager Mark Jackson. “It was great to see Geoff and Dale back.”
