Justin Bradley pushed past the magic 30 landmark in Hanover colours with a weekend hat-trick against Craigavon City.

Hanover eased home by 6-0 thanks to a slick attacking display and third consecutive clean sheet.

Bradley walked way with the matchball but Scott McCullough’s midfield performance attracted praise, alongside Steven Douglas’ work down the right.

Dean Bunting could have also shared the treble plaudits but finished frustrated from the penalty spot on two occasions.

Bunting, however, broke the deadlock with a penalty kick.

Bradley opened his account for the afternoon before Bunting failed to convert a penalty kick but managed to score from open play to put Hanover clear by 3-0.

Bradley made it 4-0 in the second half ahead of another Bunting penalty miss.

Douglas then picked out McCullough and Bradley with back-to-back assists.
