In the 50 odd years since Hampton & Richmond Borough became a senior club (as Hampton FC), I suspect there are not many players who’ve graced the Beveree turf for the Beavers and also played at Wembley in their career.
I would venture to say there are even fewer that have turned out in the red and blue and also run out onto that massive pitch in HA9 in the same season…!
He might actually be the only one, so step forward Tom Beere. He made 16 appearances for HRBFC on loan from AFC Wimbledon, scoring 4 goals to help the Beavers win the Ryman Premier League title and now? He’s part of the AFCW squad going to Wembley for the League 2 playoff final.
To go from playing at places like Brentwood and Burgess Hill to the most iconic stadium in England in the same season, well you have to admit, that’s something!
Well done Tom…!!!
