Dave Tarpey says he made a return to the club on New Year's Day because he wants to help fire the Beavers back to Conference football.

The prolific striker, 25, is back at the Beveree after re-signing yesterday from Farnborough – and already has fans licking their lips at the prospect of his partnership with 27-goal Charlie Moone.

And while it was his potential partner-in-crime that convinced him to come back to the club, he says the aim is purely promotion.

Tarpey said: “It's fantastic to be back. I've enjoyed my time at Farnborough and it's not like I've not been playing, but I needed a bit of a change – so as soon as I made up my mind I spoke to Charlie and we went from there.

“Hampton's a club that's close to my heart. Charlie told me things are different now, and you can tell that with the results at the end of last year.

Fans' favourite is back at the Beveree after leaving Farnborough

Returning hero: Dave Tarpey is back at Hampton & Richmond

Dave Tarpey has returned to Hampton & Richmond Borough.

Tarpey’s contract at Farnborough was terminated by mutual consent this week and the striker has now returned to the Beveree.

Boro joint manager Paul Barry hopes Tarpey can help lighten the load on Charlie Moone and has welcomed him back to the club.

"It is wonderful news, and a great deal for the club at an important time,” he said.

“We have been looking for the right player to help Charlie out so hopefully Dave will hit the ground running.

“We may be in a position to confirm another new arrival in the next day or so, so watch this space."

Tarpey is in line to make his second debut at home to Bury Town this weekend, with Hampton chairman Steve McPherson looking forward to seeing him back in action.

Hampton & Richmond Borough are delighted to confirm the return of our prolific former striker Dave Tarpey, who today rejoins the club from Farnborough.

Tarpey, a huge fans' favourite in his years at the Beveree, left for Conference football in May 2012 - but last night put pen to paper to get the New Year celebrations started.

Chairman Steve McPherson said the news is a big boost with the team's form so good at the end of 2013.

He said: "I have always wanted to bring Dave back to Hampton & Richmond. We were gutted when he left us the summer before last but we're over the moon that he's home.

"What will he bring? Hopefully goals goals and more goals! Everyone knows we have needed someone to help Charlie Moone out in that area, so if they click then we will have an attack to be proud of."

Joint manager Paul Barry believes the new signing is a perfect boost heading into 2014.

He said: "It is wonderful news, and a great deal for the club at an important time. We have been...
