Andrea Lombardo played his first round in the primavera Tim cup apparetnly came in as a sub late in the half of the game and did well. However recieving his first yellow card for Unsporting Behavour on the field of play. He did not score but was apparently sightly out of touch with his counterparts at times. He will progress as he matures in this league of stallions....Torino is no expception the are tough and big. Glad to see he is not getting pushed around he has to be more laid back and sneaky to avoid these cards... But over all apparetnly manage to stay with game and considering this being his second match game with the Atalanta primavera team. Season starts this weekend against Parma away game another good match as well! Lets hope he gets more playing time to toughen up!

The Non-League Paper

Hoaxing Hampton sign false name star

Ryman Premier club Hampton & Richmond Borough player former Watford whiz-kid Elliot Godfrey under a false name while they negotiated to sign him.

The "cloak and dagger" method was to avoid anyone else snapping up the talented youngster who had attracted several Non-League clubs.

After being released by Watford, 19-year-old striker Godfrey turned out for Hampton in a friendly against Leatherhead as Elliot Smith.

Manager Alan Devonshire says that he did not remember Godfrey's surname and so put him down as Smith because the youngster arrived after he had submitted his team sheet.

"It was not a deliberate lie," he insisted.

But club press officer Les Rance told a different story: "It was a ploy to keep Elliot's identity secret whilst negotiations went on," he said.

Hampton had been tipped off by Watford manager Ray Lewington, whose son Craig plays for the Beavers, that Godfrey was being released. He was injured in the friendly and his signing was put on hold until he was fit again.

Godfrey proved his recovery with the winner after coming on as a substitute last Saturday against Windsor & Eton last week - and Hampton wasted no time in signing him.
