Shots gunned down by Beavers

Hampton open preseason with a win over a lacklustre Aldershot line-up

Hampton made a positive start against their National League opponents and on 6 minutes took the lead.

Jamal Lowe burst into the box but was clumsily brought down by Jim Kellerman, whose mistimed challenge sent the forward to the deck. Tom Jelley steps up to take the kick against former Beavers keeper Mark Smith; he sent him the wrong way to give the Beavers the lead.

Hampton doubled the lead on 22 minutes and it was through a second penalty. Hippolyte-Patrick latched on to a through ball from Nicke Kabamba, and closed in on goal. Smith came out and in the collision, the Hampton player was fouled.

Jelley came forward and sent Smith in the other direction to the first spot kick, giving the home team a comfortable two goal lead which they held at the break, the Shots struggling to breakdown a steady Hampton defence; Matt McClure coming closest with a looping header over Aaron Howe's bar on the half hour.

In the second half, Aldershot came out with more purpose and Matt McClure tried a neat volley after Callum Reynolds cross, but it was wide of the post.

Cheye Alexander was the next to try his luck for the visitors as he clipped Charlie Walker's shot towards goal but it too was wide.

Christian Jolley had been quiet up to that point but his alertness nearly got the Beavers a third goal as he picked up a Jamal Lowe pass, but keeper Jake Cole was up to and blocked the attempt.

Aldershot did leak a third goal just after the hour as Aaron Lemore made use of the space he was in to get to the line and cut the cross back to Nicke Kabamba and he sidefooted it home easily.

It could have been four as Jez Sole took advantage of poor control on the edge of box by Will Evans to advance on Jake Cole, he rounded the keeper but his shot headed off the line by Callum Reynolds for a corner.

After the match, Dowson was happy with the performance but added a word of caution. "Its only preseason but against a good side. We still need one or two more tweaks to the team. Everyone's working hard and getting fit, and the team ethic has been excellent so far."

Shots manager Gary Waddock admitted in his post match interview that the performance wasn't good enough. "We'll be back on training ground on Monday morning, its a new group and they are still learning how we want to play."

Waddock was quick to praise the hosts: "Credit to Hampton though, they're a good side with momentum from last season, with some good players in that team."
