Hampton getting closer to success but couldn’t hold on against Tudors


Hampton’s lacklustre start to the season continued despite scoring first against Hemel Hempstead, leaving them in the bottom 3 after 3 games, with a goal difference that will possibly concern Gary.

After an even start to the game, in which Hampton came the closest through a Louis Stead header that went wide, the Beavers took the lead on 24 minutes.

Tyrone Lewthwaite expertly controlled a Tom Jelley cross with his back to goal, and clipped the ball over his shoulder into the net past keeper Sam Beasant.

Hemel came back into the game 10 minutes later as captain Connor Essam hit a low drive that left keeper Laurie Walker helpless as it flew into the net.

Hampton were caught after the restart as a through ball found its way to Sam Ashford, and he finished calmly past Walker from close range.

In a game of few chances, the Tudors could have had a third goal just on the hour as Walker had to make a big save from Galliford before Pearce could clear.

Hemel has another chance to put themselves three up through Ashford but excellent defending meant the visitors had to settle for a corner.

The Tudors were left to finish the game with 10 men after debutant Josh Wallen was shown a second yellow following a second bookable offence.

Dean Inman nearly got an equaliser late on for the Beavers but his powerful header from Cole Brown’s cross rattled the bar and went out for a goal kick.
