U14Cs succumb to 4-2 loss at Bradfield College, despite early dominance
On Saturday 10 October, the U14C team lined up their 14 player strong squad to play against Bradfield College.
The game started with three quick attacks from the Hampton side, eventually resulting in a goal from Jack Shephard. However, Bradfield were quick to respond and equalised in the next two minutes.
The game only got tougher for Hampton as Bradfield bagged two more before half-time.
Going into the second half there was more intent from Hampton which eventually resulted in a great goal from Fahad Hussain on the edge of the box. Unfortunately, Bradfield would not give up and in the dying moments of the game they grabbed another goal to seal the game.
The game finished 4-2 to Bradfield but it was a strong performance from Hampton and the C team will be looking to play more games in the future.

Resurgent U14D team fight back to win 4-1 against Bradfield College
Hampton 4-1 Bradfield
The U14D squad played their second match of the year against Bradfield on Saturday.
However, it didn’t start well for Hampton, 1-0 down after only 5 minutes. Only a few minutes later though, the ball found itself to Henry Forster on the edge of the box who hit it hard and low into the bottom right hand corner, levelling the game. Only 5 minutes later, and after a good move from inside the box, Oscar Shepherd put Hampton in front with a good finish.
Going into half time, Hampton were positive, and only a few minutes after the restart Harry Spence curled a great effort into the top left corner from outside the area, doubling Hampton’s lead . The game died down after this, but Hampton were still dominant and with only a few minutes left, the ball found Spence inside the box who drilled it into the far corner to grab a brace.
Overall, a great 4-1 win for the D team, with a special mention going to the defence who came out on top against the Bradfield attack.
