JEFFERS ROCKS BOGNOR LATE ON

HAMP­TON & RICH­MOND B 1 BOGNOR REGIS TOWN 0

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Oliver Thomas

A SHAUN JEFFERS strike six min­utes from time handed Hamp­ton & Rich­mond vic­tory against Bognor Regis.

Dur­ing a cagey first half, the Beavers were frus­trated as their vis­i­tors cre­ated the bet­ter chances early on, with Ol­lie Pearce hav­ing the pick of the bunch, when he man­aged to dink the ball over keeper Will Henry to­wards goal, but Ben Wyn­ter man­aged to clear the ball off the line.

Hamp­ton’s best chance of the first half came from Jeffers, but af­ter Bradley Hud­son-Odoi picked him out, he could only blaze over.

The Beavers nearly broke the dead­lock on 75 min­utes when sub Harry Craw­ford’s header rat­tled the cross­bar.

Bren­dan Kier­nan’s ven­omous shot was then tipped onto the bar by keeper Dan Lin­coln.

But Hamp­ton’s per­sis­tence fi­nally paid off as Jeffers’ close con­trol and neat turn in­side the box gave him space to drill his ef­fort across goal and into the bot­tom right cor­ner.

Bognor’s mis­ery was com­pounded when cap­tain Sami El-Abd was shown a straight red card for an ap­par­ent lead­ing el­bow in stop­page time.

STAR MAN: Shaun Jeffers (Hamp­ton & Rich­mond Bor­ough) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
