TOM Stanley smashed a four-timer as Saxton Rovers dumped holders Berinsfield out of the North Berks League Cup with a crushing 6-0 semi-final win, writes RICHARD UNDERWOOD.

In front of around 120 spectators, Berinsfield started brightly, before Stanley put Rovers in front.

The Saxton striker completed a first-half hat-trick when he converted a Daniel Parry pass and, minutes later, fired home at a corner.

Stanley turned provider after the break when his cross was side-footed home by Niall Hodgkins, before he added his fourth and Saxton’s fifth.

Berinsfield’s day got worse when they were reduced to ten men as Max Palmer was sent off for a late challenge.

Kyle Allsworth then added to their misery, completing the rout with Saxton’s sixth.
