Thanks to Rob Overfield, Press Officer at Hampton, for this release. Follow Rob on twitter: @RabidRobo

Powell is the fans' choice to replace Harper

Powell is the fans’ choice to replace Harper

Following the resignation of Mark Harper on Monday, we are pleased to confirm that Paul Barry and Darren Powell have agreed to take over first team management until the end of the season. We trust that supporters will give Paul and Darren their full backing until we are able confirm a permanent appointment for the forthcoming season beginning with our next home game this Thursday versus Enfield. The position of first team manager is under active consideration with an encouraging number of applications having already been received. The club will keep supporters advised as soon as we are in a position to make further announcements.

In addition, Peter Augustine, currently Director of the Academy, has agreed to take over management of the Suburban & Capital league sides. The club would like to thank Paul, Darren and Peter for stepping in at short notice to assist the club at this time.

Next season, the reserve team structure will be re-organised with one side participating in the Suburban League and consisting of the most promising Academy and senior squad players. We believe that this will allow a more seamless development of players through the Academy structure into first team football.

Andy Smith, Lee Wain and Nigel Edgecombe have all resigned from the roles at the club and we would like to express our appreciation for their efforts during their time at Hampton & Richmond Borough.


About James Bartaby

Hey, I'm James and I'm relatively new to non-league football, having only taken in my first match in September 2011. Despite it being a 0-4 defeat for Hampton & Richmond Borough, I became a huge fan of the club and NL in general. So much so that they are now the first club that I mention when talking about which team I support! I just got massively disillusioned with top flight football in this country and the attitudes of the lawmakers and top clubs in general, and I wanted to start taking my son to see decent football. I am now the club's Deputy Press Officer, and loving every minute!
