Being back in the Isthmian League provides Hampton fans with the chance to watch their team in another cup competition, namely the Isthmian League Cup. The draw has been made for the 2nd round and we find ourselves away to Three Bridges.
Beavers fans may recall the final of the Isthmian League Cup in 2004/05, just two days before the vital last game of the league season. After losing the cup final 3-1 to Slough Town on Thursday, Hampton then failed to win a playoff place on Saturday, going down 3-2 at Tonbridge Angels. The failure to secure a top 5 finish was largely blamed on the high number of injuries and players unavailable following 4 games in 7 days in a very poorly planned calender.
Hampton also reached the final of the cup in 2001/02, losing after extra time to Northwood at St. Albans City's ground. Future Beaver Lawrence Yaku provided one of the Northwood goals that evening.
Our campaign to reach a third Isthmian League Cup final will begin on October 16th (yes, it's a Tuesday!) down in Three Bridges. Other interesting fixtures include a Kent derby with Maidstone United hosting Sittingbourne, and a more local clash as Tolworth based Corinthian Casuals will play Walton Casuals.
