Collier's winner enough as Beavers dig deep

Hampton do enough to confirm National League South playoff berth

​Hampton confirmed their National League South playoff entry following last season's promotion from the Ryman League, beating Concord Rangers in a nervy game.

With eyes in the crowd also following the events at East Thurrock vs Wealdstone, the Beavers struggled to get into the game, with neither team creating what could be called a clear chance in the first 20 minutes.

Hampton had a couple of half chances in the first 15 minutes through Duncan Culley, as Concord belied their lowly league position, putting pressure on the Beavers defence on a number of occasions, without really testing Sam Howes.

That was all broken in the 29th minute; Tom Jelley managed to swing a cross into the near post, Nathan Collier was free some 6 yards out and stooped to get his head on the ball, the header flying past keeper Ollie Bowles into the net.

Howes had to be alert just after to stop Steve Cawley from scoring immediately afterwards but the Beavers settled in and held onto the interval.

With the half time score coming through as 1-1 at Rookery Hill, it was still all in the Beavers hands, win or lose.

It continued as a tight game with neither side really able to pry open the opposition or even create chances; Sembie-Perris firing one into the side netting with 20 minutes to go.

5 minutes later, Della-Verde looked to have broken through on goal, but a well-timed tackle from Kamara before the forward could strike a shot, pushed the ball away.

With 10 minutes left, sub Stiven Rivic danced through the Concord defence, beating a couple of defenders in the process but his shot was straight at Bowles.

Deep in added time, the Rangers won a corner, sending up Bowles to try and get the equaliser but to no avail as the Beavers held on to take their unexpected place in the playoffs.
