Red Nose Day is always an eagerly anticipated event at Weston Green School and Hampton and Richmond Borough Football Club were happy to help the school by leading sessions with all of the children.

Over the course of the day, each year group had the opportunity to work on their football skills with Alan Dowson, Martin Tyler, Under 18's Manager Steve Bates, Ladies Manager Andy Hatcher and a group of Academy players.

Underpinning the events of the day was the knowledge that all was being done for a good cause, raising money for a charity that does so much good, both here and around the world.

The children had time to reflect on the work Comic Relief does and think how their donation could affect the lives of different people all over the world.

Dowse commented "Its always a pleasure taking the club out into the community, and especially helping on a day which does so much good.

It was great to have representation from the First, Academy and Ladies teams...

Beavers Boss Alan Dowson managed to freshen up the squad with a couple of late signings on transfer deadline day, midfielder Stiven Rivic and attacking player Jermaine Osei.

His main frustration was that he couldn't bring in any cover for injured defender Josh Casey.

Speaking this morning, Dowse was in a bullish mood, "We've managed to get Stiven and Jermaine in to give us some extra depth but we've nothing left in the budget to get cover for Josh.

"He won't play this weekend and might not play again this season, which is a blow. I would have loved to get cover for him, but I can't.

"Me and the chairman have been having chats to see if it can be sorted but it can't and that's it.

"However, I know that this squad will give us an honest effort between now at the end of the season. There's big games coming and the big players will have to step up for them.

"We'll be giving it a proper go, every match.

31 year old Stiven started out in his homeland for NK Pula before joining Belgian club Sint-Truidense V.V. at the age of 19.

He then returned back to his home town club for a season before joining Energie Cottbus in 2006 following the club's promotion to the Bundesliga.

Stiven stayed with Cottbus until 2010, making 73 appearances for the first team and a further 12 for their reserve side.

He then joined FC Kaiserslautern for the following season, making 12 appearances.

In 2012, he had a brief stay at Istra 1961, back in Croatia, before rejoining Cottbus in 2012, where he made a further 40 appearances before leaving the club and football.

Stiven now lives in the local area and is currently registered with Walton & Hersham, regaining his match fitness.

His ability in his youth was recognised with 27 appearances in Croatia under 16s to under 21s.

We welcome Stiven to the club!
