MARKSMAN John Mills aims to fire Westfields to promotion and hopes to lift silverware at Edgar Street again come the end of the season.

The 28-year-old, who netted 140 goals in three seasons for Hereford FC, has moved across the city and signed on loan at Allpay Park for the rest of the season.

After leaving Hereford for Bath City at the start of the season Mills has had a turbulent year being out of the starting 11 and then suffering an injury while on loan at Banbury.

However, the Oxfordshire-based striker got off to a good start for Westfields scoring from the penalty spot during their 2-2 draw on Saturday at Quorn, only a day after completing the signing.

And with Fields in the HFA County Challenge Cup semi-finals an Edgar Street final in May could see Mills lifting silverware again.

"Personally it was nice to be playing 90 minutes again, I’ve hardly played any football this season for one reason or another," said Mills

I'm happy to get a debut goal but just gutted to concede in the last minute to only take a draw. I’ve come here to get Westfields promoted and score as many goals as I can.

"I know a few of the boys here, so it's somewhere that I’m comfortable playing and the chance to win something again drew me here.

"Bath play with one up top and unfortunately the other striker was just better at the job than me so I had to sit on the bench most games.

"When I went to Banbury I played the first two or three but pulled my hamstring so had to sit out a lot of that.

"But I’m fit and raring to go now. Hopefully I can finish the season strongly with 10 to 15 goals and see what next season brings."

Fields manager Andy Bevan was disappointed that his side conceded late into stoppage time last weekend at Quorn after Carlos Moriera scored what looked like an 89th minute winner following Mills' opener.

This weekend Westfields host promotion rivals Sporting Khalsa (3pm kick-off).

"I haven't had to sell a cow to get him (Mills) here and it came after a chance conversation," said Bevan who works as a farmer.

"People in Hereford love him and he's a good kid.

"When we spoke to him (Mills) he was at a moment where he wanted to step back to move forward.

"It takes a great attitude and professional to take a step back and he created three chances on Saturday.

"He still scored and despite not being the penalty taker, he wanted to take it."

"We were disappointed to concede late on and we should have won really, but you need to look at the bigger picture.

"We have to take the positive out of it that we left for Quorn in fourth place in the league and came home in third.

Fields sit in third place and eight points behind leaders Ilkeston, with Saturday's visitors Sporting Khalsa also in the promotion mix.

Fields won the away fixtures 4-0 earlier this season but Bevan knows it will be a tough match.

"Saturday will be a very good game and it was feisty one at their place," Bevan added.

"The scoreline flattered us up there and they want to play football like us."

"Ilkeston won last night (Tuesday) but have been on a bad run. This league can turn around and we are in the mix."
