Dickson's deft finish defeats dismal Torquay

On the first ever meeting between the clubs, the Beavers proved too good for the uninspiring Gulls

On a beautiful afternoon at Plainmoor, Hampton showed signs that the squad is coming together nicely and they handled the ex-league club comfortably, as the home fans turned on beleagued Gulls manager Gary Owers at the final whistle.

Despite having to make enforced changes, the Beavers made a sound start on a perfect pitch, the stage not overawing them.

Ricky Wellard had the first clear chance, in the 13th minute, but his first time shot was always rising and cleared the Gulls crossbar.

Following Craig Dundas' attempt some 5 minutes later, which hadn't the pace to trouble home keeper Alex Bass, the Beavers took the lead midway through the half.

A corner from the Hampton right was missed by home skipper Brett Williams at the near post, and bounced into the net off an unprepared Samir Nabi, surprising everyone.

Torquay passed the ball around but with the Beavers congesting the midfield, there was no penetration for the home side's efforts and the Beavers were never in any danger, Tom Lovelock having little to do.

5 minutes before the break, Rhys Murrell-Williamson managed to find himself some space to have a dig from 20 yards, but despite the pace on the shot, the direction was off and it flew over the bar.

Torquay made a change at half time, bringing on Keating for Banton, and the introduction improved their appearance. Just before the hour, the substitute had the Gulls best chance as his shot from 20 yards across Tom Lovelock beat the keeper, but it struck the base of the post and rolled away. Torquay were never to get as close again, although Williams' header 5 minutes later was just wide of the post.

Hampton were looking comfortable throughout and with 10 minutes left Nabi tried to atone for the own goal with a shot from distance but it was always rising.

A couple of minutes later, the Beavers took the wind out of the Gulls wings as they took advantage to some sloppy defending. Danny Uchechi's corner was flicked home by Chris Dickson from close range, with Michael Corcoran on his shoulder, just in case.

Although the referee added 7 minutes at the end of the game, it made no difference as the Gulls never looked like scoring and at the final whistle, a chorus of boos aimed at Owers chased him down the tunnel. Credit to home support though, giving the boys in white and black a round of applause as the ground cleared and the Hampton faithful sang to their new heroes.
