Match Report - Yeovil Town v Hampton & Richmond

Yeovil Town progressed to the third round of the FA Trophy this afternoon by seeing of National League South side Hampton & Richmond Borough 4-0 at Huish Park. A hat trick from top scorer Rhys Murphy along with a goal from Tom Bradbury sealed the win.

Darren Sarll opted for a three at the back formation which saw Tom Bradbury and Matt Worthington return to the side. New goalkeeper Ted Cann went straight into the side after signing on loan from West Bromwich Albion in the week.

The match started very slowly with few chances for either side. Yeovil struggled to get going and were having trouble asserting themselves into the match.

The first real opportunity came on 17 minutes as Hampton 'keeper Dan Lincoln failed to hold on to a volley from Luke Wilkinson and the ball fell to Albi Skendi who somehow spurned the shot wide from close range.

Yeovil took the lead in the 38th minute as Rhys Murphy got his first goal. A driving run by Skendi saw him give the ball to Murphy who's well taken shot found the back of the net for 1-0.

The second half couldn't have started better for Yeovil as they doubled their advantage just 30 seconds after the kick off. A quickly taken free kick by Courtney Duffus caught Hampton & Richmond out and the ball was given to Rhys Murphy who grabbed his second of the afternoon.

The game was sealed in the 62nd minute as Rhys Murphy completed his hat trick as he took a free kick just outside of the penalty area which flew into the top corner.

Town got their fourth on 71 minutes as a corner was not dealt with by Hampton 'keeper Dan Lincoln and Tom Bradbury was there to head home Yeovil's fourth.
