Hemel Town overturn deficit to take home three points

 Published on: 10th August 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Hemel Hempstead Town F.C

The Tudors overturned an early deficit to beat Hampton & Richmond Borough 2-1 in the National League South.

Tyrone Lethwaite put Hampton & Richmond ahead from a well-executed cross into the box putting the home side ahead, but The Tudors were quick to respond and 10 minutes later Connor Essam made it level.

Hemel kept the tempo high going into the second half and were rewarded when Sam Ashford slotted the second goal past former keeper Laurie Walker who returned to face his former team for the first time since leaving for MK Dons in the summer.

It was also a debut to forget for Tudors man Josh Wallen as he left Hemel Town fighting to hold onto the three points for the final 10 minutes of the game when he was red carded.

Tosan Popo adds to the club’s growing injury list but Sammy Moore and the fans will be hoping the momentum will carry on throughout the season as the side sits in seventh position after three games played.

Hemel entertain Dulwich Hamlet on Tuesday night in tricky fixture as the South London side have a 100% record from their first three fixtures.
