    The young Beavers nearly found themselves under a massive handicap as keeper Lewis Gallifent was adjudged to have fouled a Bedfont player outside the box with just 5 mins on the watch.

    Thankfully the referee showed some leniency and only showed the shot stopper a yellow card, when some referees might have gone to the red.

    The first half was pretty even and midway through the half, Dylan Randall made himself some space in the box for a shot; it took a deflection and Bedfont keeper Hayes had to palm it away for a corner after Gallifent had had to do the same a couple of minutes before.

    Early in the second half, the Beavers defence had to scramble back to clear the ball away off the line following a save by Gallifent from Gromri Bzait, the ball bouncing around the box before it was hacked away.

    Just after the hour, the Sports took the lead. The centre of the Hampton defence was sliced open by a neat pass and despite some frantic defending, Jordan Sarfo planted the ball past Gallifent.

    The Sports didn't hold their lead for long as Pierre Morrin's shot some 5 minutes later took a deflection, which took the ball past Hayes and into the corner of the net.

    3 minutes later, Morrin got his, and the Beavers second, as he managed to get loose in the box; his shot squirming under Hayes and into the net to give the Beavers the lead.

    With 10 minutes to go, a Bedfont shot looked to be on target but an unfriendly deflection took it away from the Hampton goal and out for a corner.

    The Beavers wrapped the game up with a third came from a corner; the ball into the box found its way to an unmarked Shadrac Malembe, and faced with a one on one with the keeper, he buried it past Hayes to make sure the Jeff Ritson Senior Youth Cup would make its way to Beveree.
