MRHA West Midlands Premier
ALEX Grafton’s hat-trick helped Hampton secure the three points needed to guarantee promotion with three games of the season remaining.
Grafton has been in superb form all season and he starred once again on Saturday, though Hampton had to fight back from behind to win, much to the frustration of coach Jon Doherty.
The forwards quickly got things back on track though with Grafton putting them ahead before Tom Brammer also got on the scoresheet.
Grafton completed his hat-trick to put the icing on the cake and although Coventry netted a late consolation, the final whistle meant the celebrations could begin.
THE 2nds were beaten 5-1 by North Notts whilst the 3rds ran out 6-2 winners against Bloxwich 3rds thanks to goals from Barney Dowson (2), Sean Roberts (2), Richard Price and Richard Ackroyd.
Simon Ashton was on target as the 4ths drew 1-1 with Sutton Coldfield 9ths.
IT WAS a day to forget for the Ladies as they suffered a heavy 9-0 defeat against Tamworth.
Hampton conceded six times in the first half against a well-drilled Tamworth side as they struggled to string more than a few passes together in any one move.
Things improved at the start of the second half and although three more goals were conceded, the team walked off at least knowing they had improved their level of performance during the course of the game.
ROSIE Brammer scored twice and Georgie Green struck as the 2nds defeated Warwick 3rds 3-0 whilst the 3rds fell to a 5-2 defeat against Sutton Coldfield 6ths.
