MILDENHALL remain top of the Ridgeons Premier Division after beating Felixstowe and Walton 4-1 on Tuesday.

Craig Hammond came off the bench after Liam Harrold picked up a knock early on and he scored two headers from Lee Wilson crosses to fire the hosts into a comfortable lead.

Gareth Simpson made it 3-0 when he hit the net after a Niall Inman pull back, but the visitors scored a penalty before the break. Ozie Foster sealed the win 15 minutes from the end after latching on to a Simpson flick on.

Mildenhall assistant manager Wayne Goddard said: "We were all over them and if it had been 6-0 at half-time they would have no complaints. I think the referee gave them the penalty because he felt sorry for them."

Hall stay three points clear of Wroxham - who beat Lowestoft - and now host Woodbridge on Saturday.
