Tomorrow's Ryman Premier match with Bury Town is the subject of a 3.30pm pitch inspection this afternoon.

The Beveree surface has been hit hard by the recent rain and the game is already in doubt with more bad weather due in the next 24 hours.

A decision has been made to call a local referee in and he will decide if the match has a chance later today. As soon as we know the result, we shall post an update both on the club's website and on twitter.

The Beavers are hoping to build on their recent great form and after losing the New Year's Day game with Cray Wanderers to the elements, joint-manager Paul Barry says the team are "climbing the walls" to play.

If the game can beat the weather, it could see a second debut for returning striker Dave Tarpey, who re-signed for Hampton on Wednesday from Skrill South Farnborough.

Paul also confirmed the club are closing in on two new faces to add to the squad - more on that when forms have been signed.

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.

“He said there's a new energy about the place and it's a club very much on the up. I couldn't wait to put pen to paper, it felt right. We want...

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.
