Godalming’s final pre-season friendly ended in a 3-2 defeat to Hampton & Richmond Borough. Elliot Bent scrambled in Hampton’s first after only 4 minutes, and Warren Harris nearly equalised soon after, but his effort went over. Dan Read volleyed in the Gs equaliser 3 minutes into the second half, but Dan Simmonds restored the Ryman Premier sides after lobbing the ball over Somerville into the corner of the net. Jack Broome scored his first goal for Godalming after tapping home a rebound, but JJ Bates scored Hampton’s winner in the 78th minute, after he capitalised on a short back pass.
The league season kicks off next Saturday, as Godalming host Burnham, kick off 3pm.
