Wealdstone manager watches his side lose 3-1 to Hampton & Richmond but maintains promotion focus

Points target: Gordon Bartlett

Gordon Bartlett has set his sights on a century of points in a bid to lead Wealdstone to Conference South football next season.

The Stones boss watched his side lose in the league for the second time this season, 3-1 at home to Hampton & Richmond Borough on Saturday, but the men of the Vale are still looking down on the rest after amassing 51 points in the first half of what is a 46-game league campaign.

And while he is never a man to take things for granted, the veteran of the dugout who has been in the hot-seat at Wealdstone since 1995 claims his target is a realistic one.

Disappointed: Paul Barry

Hampton & Richmond Borough boss Paul Barry says Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Lewes felt like defeat.

The visitors struck in injury time to level Charlie Moone’s second half opener and steal a Ryman Premier League point at the Beveree.

Hampton, who travel to Margate tomorrow, had been reduced to 10 men after skipper Billy Jeffreys saw red in the first half.

“Even with 10 men we were creating chances,” said Barry.

“The lads were disappointed at the end and it felt like a loss to them, which is only a good thing.”
