Dickson Happy To End Summer Of Ups & Downs At Hampton

A winning goal was more than enough to convince Hampton & Richmond Borough’s new manager.

The Beavers have completed the signing of striker Chris Dickson.

A part of the Chelmsford City forward line last season, Hampton boss Gary McCann gave him the chance to impress on Saturday.

He played the forward against Oxford United at the weekend and he made the difference as he bagged the winner.

McCann has seen enough and it convinced him to do a deal and bring the Ghanaian to the Beveree.

Dickson tweeted: "After a seemingly endless summer of ups and downs I’m very happy to have signed at @HRBFC for the upcoming season. Looking forward to working with Gary and the whole coaching and playing staff. Great start at the weekend against strong league opposition. More of the same to come."

It’s an almost complete summer overhaul for Hampton who lost manager Alan Dowson in May - and a number of players went with him to Woking.

Only a handful of the side who were penalty kicks away from promotion have remained in south west London.

McCann, whose side start at Slough Town on August 4, told us last month of the importance of pre-season to bed his new players in.

His squad appear to have listened to his words and it’s so far so good.

Hampton have won their three pre-season games so far before tonight’s defeat at Met Police. Victory over League One Oxford, Southern League Bedfont Sports and Bostik League Harrow Borough has seen a good start before Tuesday’s loss.
