DICK­SON CAN’T STOP SCOR­ING

TRURO CITY 0 HAMP­TON & R B 2

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Rhod Mitchell

HAMP­TON weath­ered an early City storm to make it five suc­ces­sive wins.

Buoyed by a mid­week vic­tory, City started the game at Torquay United’s Plain­moor ground strongly against a rather lack­lus­tre Hamp­ton.

Louis Rooney, Tyler Har­vey, Ben Ger­ringand Con­nor Ri­ley-Lowe all had op­por­tu­ni­ties, but were un­able to score.

And the vis­i­tors then struck twice in a deadly four minute spell.

First, top scorer Chris Dick­son tucked away his eighth goal of the sea­son as he fin­ished off Zak Joseph’s cross.

Boosted by the goal Hamp­ton quickly made it 2-0 with a qual­ity fin­ish from the ex­pe­ri­enced Craig Dun­das who burst into box and found the far cor­ner.

It put Hamp­ton in con­trol and de­spite plenty of sec­ond half ef­fort by City they rarely trou­bled Tom Love­lock in the vis­i­tors’ goal.

In­deed Hamp­ton should have added to their tally with Dick­son shoot­ing over as they eased to an im­pres­sive win against a Truro side which showed signs they can get away from the wrong end of the ta­ble.

STAR MAN: Rod­ney (Hamp­ton) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
