Charlie Moone has put both his and the team's fantastic form down to the closest dressing room he's played in.

Charlie is in amongst the country's highest-scoring strikers, his wonder-goal against Wingate in midweek was his 31st in all competitions.

Now, ahead of the club's visit to Maidstone United on Saturday, he has explained the reasons behind the team's upturn in fortunes – attitude and togetherness.

It's game on this weekend no matter how much rain falls with the Stones immaculate 3G pitch able to withstand everything Mother Nature throws our way.

And while Paul and Darren can plan ahead properly without turning to weather watching, their top scorer is hoping it will be fantastic on plastic with Hampton unbeaten in eight.

He said: “We've shown we can cut it against the good sides in this league already – last weekend against Dulwich we were superb second half, and as everyone knows we've won well against Kingstonian and Wealdstone as part of this great run.

Captain Billy Jeffreys suffered a recurrence of his knee injury and could now need surgery. Paul and Darren opted to slot Stuart Lake into the heart of defence, and replaced Billy with Ben Harris.

Almost immediately, Hampton asserted their dominance on the game. A third minute corner from Dave Tarpey was met by the head of Harris. His on target header was cleared from inside the six yard box, and Joe Turner volleyed the loose ball over. Tarpey and Turner brought saves out of visiting goalkeeper Bobby Smith in the first ten minutes, but Hampton weren't going to be kept out for...

But joint-boss Barry says second half showing by Beavers 'among their worst'

Hampton & Richmond 2-0 Wingate & Finchley

Hampton & Richmond joint-boss Paul Barry labelled the second half performance in the 2-0 win over Wingate & Finchley on Tuesday night as 'among their worst'.

First half goals from Charlie Moone - his 31st of the season - and Stuart Lake were enough to give the Beavers victory.

But Hampton did not build on their dominance in the second period and keeper Rodney Chiweshe produced two fine saves late on as Wingate threatened to come away with something.

Barry said on Twitter: "Not the best performance. Second half was among our worst but dug in and some excellent keeping gets another three points."

Moone opened the scoring against out-of-form Wingate after quarter of an hour with a half volley and Lake added the second on 33...
