Earlier this week, James Ewington signed for the Beavers (seen here with coach Dave Smalley) and during today, he found time to talk to us.
- Welcome to Hampton & Richmond Borough, James! Thanks for giving us some moments of your time.
Firstly, let me say I am delighted to have signed for Hampton & Richmond Borough Football Club and thank you for your welcome. HRBFC is a club that has been on my radar for a while now and it was an easy decision for me after having the conversations with Gary about the club.
I know Gary was keen on trying to sign me earlier in the year but I signed for St Albans City, where it didn't quite work for me, and I ended up back at Walton Casuals to finish the season there and help them keep their status at Step 3, and be playing in the Southern Premier League again next season.
- You've had a reputation for scoring goals wherever you go, we know you had a great season last year.
Last season was a fantastic season for me, scoring 53 goals in all competitions. I scored 39 in 38 games for Walton Casuals, with 27 of those goals coming in the league in 29 games.
- You've played at a lot of clubs but do you think this is a move that will suit you?
I owe a lot of this to the manager there at Walton last season, Anthony Gale, and the way he had his team play football. This is a major reason for me why I have signed for Hampton & Richmond Borough FC.
After speaking with Gary, I feel he knows how to get the best out of me, and the way he wants to play football will suit me and my game. For me, this is something that is very important, as well as being somewhere I can improve my game and become better as well.
Many thanks to James and welcome again!
