The Beavers were at it again this afternoon, shocking another of the Ryman Premier big-hitters - this time seeing off leaders Wealdstone.

In undoubtedly the result of the season so far, the boys came from behind to spring a big surprise at Grosvenor Vale.

Gordon Bartlett's men went ahead after Sean Cronin's 25th minute penalty found the net.

But just like against Kingstonian on Boxing Day, the Beavers showed their character. Tom Hickey and free-scoring Charlie Moone put us in at the break in front.

An second-half onslaught was expected from the Stones but it was Hampton that got the vital next goal.

Joe Turner notching his third of the campaign to make it 3-1 and confirm back-to-back wins for Paul and Darren's side.

The Beavers have received a big boost heading into the New Year with the news that no fewer that four first team players have rejected more lucrative approaches.

Unsurprisingly, top scorer Charlie Moone has been the subject of a lot of the interest – along with midfielder pair Joe Turner and in-form Tom Hickey.

Defender George Wells was also a wanted man, but the under-contract player was keen to remain with the club.

Steve said: “This wasn't a case of us saying 'no you can't talk to him' - all the players wanted to stay, which speaks volumes for our improvement and how the team is progressing.

“It's a compliment to the club. It's great news as we live in an age where players are happy to move clubs for a couple of quid. We're delighted.”

After fantastic back-to-back wins over the Christmas period, Hampton head to bottom of the league Cray Wanderers...

RYMAN LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION

Wealdstone 1

Hampton & Richmond Borough 3

Wealdstone suffered only a second league defeat of the season on Saturday as they fell prey to the goal machine that is Charlie Moone (pictured).

Hampton & Richmond’s in-form marksman made it 27 for the season with his team’s vital second goal in first half stoppage time as the Beavers followed up Boxing Day’s thrashing of Kingstonian with a second win in 48 hours against one of the title favourites.

Stones, who led 1-0 thanks to Sean Cronin’s penalty, will argue Hampton keeper Rodney Chiweshe should have been dismissed for handball with the score at 1-1, still lead the table as the season reaches the midway point.

They will reflect on chances which went astray and poor defending on Hampton’ first two goals which left them chasing the game up the slope in the second half, but this blip should be no cause for blood-letting by Stones’ passionate fans who must rally behind their side in...
