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...

The club have just been informed by Cray Wanderers that tomorrow's match has had to be postponed, due to a waterlogged pitch.

Pictures from Hayes Lane show standing water on the pitch and further rain is expected in the time up to kick off tomorrow.

Cray, pictured here after scoring in the match at the Beveree last season, are bottom of the table having lost their last six Ryman Premier matches.

When we have agreed a new date for this game, we shall let you all know.

The Beavers were looking forward to trying to make it three wins on the spin after an excellent Christmas double over promotion-chasers Kingstonian and Wealdstone.

But it's not to be after the bad weather took its toll again leaving us without a match on New Year's Day.

What it does do is give the team some recovery time ahead of Saturday's home match with Bury Town.

Chairman Steve McPherson, the board of directors, management and players would like to wish all our supporters a very happy New Year!...

Charlie Moone and his heroic Hampton team-mates gave the club's supporters the perfect Christmas present by flattening high-flying Kingstonian.

The striker was once again in deadly form as the Beavers recovered from going a goal behind to offer a festive treat to the fans.

The second-place Ks simply had not answer as the hosts ran out comfortable winners at the Beveree.

After Ryan Lake drew the team level on the stroke of half-time, Moone's treble left the home faithful in dream-land.

He scored a fifteen minute hat-trick to ensure the three points were ours - meaning the fantastic frontman now has 25 league and cup goals this season.

A bumper Boxing Day crowd of 505 were left wanting more with joint manager Darren Powell saying after it was the performance of the season.

He said: "It was a great afternoon - the second-half performance in particular was outstanding. It feels like things are really coming together."
