FORMER Saints loanee Nicholas Bignall plundered a hat-trick as Basingstoke Town ended the Conference South season by winning a goal-fest at Staines yesterday.

Bignall, who played three League 1 games under Nigel Adkins in 2010/11 while on loan from Reading, was the north Hampshire club’s hero in a 5-4 final day success.

It was the striker’s first goals for the club in his seventh game after signing last month.
