At the time of writing this article 31 of the 32 places at next summer’s World Cup in Russia have been claimed. The last spot will go to the winners of Peru v New Zealand, which will have been played in the early hours of Thursday morning, our time.

The recent play-offs have witnessed a pouring out of emotion. Jubilation for some and great despair for others. This was also the case during the last round of group matches. For some it was a case of “so near, yet so far”. A qualification campaign that has spanned nearly two years had ended in failure.

Of course, at this stage no one has won anything. 32 teams from all around the globe will gather to contest the 2018 World Cup Finals, but there can only be one winner. Some may have had a very successful campaign, boasting a 100% record, but what each country has done in qualification will count for nothing, when they arrive in Russia.

In today’s FA Trophy 3rd round Qualifying draw, the Beavers were drawn to face Bostik League Premier side Harlow Town.

Hampton last played the Hawks back in November 2014 in the Isthmian League Cup, not long after Dowse took over.

The Beavers ended that match 4-1 winners, thanks to two goals from an on-loan Duncan Culley, plus strikes from Jerome Federico and Ben Harris.

The Hawks are not having a great season in the Bostik, currently sitting in 22nd place with only one team to go down.

This match will take place on November 25th, with a 3pm kickoff at Beveree.
