Welcome Sign The Beveree Stadium is on the small side, but is (mostly) well maintained and has a real wooded feel to it, with a lot of large trees being visible around its perimeter. On the west side of the ground, there are a mixture of stands. In the centre is the very small Main Stand that has 234 seats. The legroom is rather limited in places. It has three large supporting pillars along its front that help hold up a rather basic-looking corrugated roof. An additional row of seats has been attached to the front wall at pitch level (included in the number above).  Attached to the Main Stand in the southeast corner is a shallow terrace, which has seven wide steps, and has a corrugated roof that covers most of the area. Again it has several supports running across its middle. On the other side of the Main Stand is a small covered seated stand, with 251 seats. Although it is temporary, it looks as though it has been there for some time as the green seats look faded and some of the seats are not in the best condition! The corrugated iron roof only covers the back few rows of seats. There are also some standing areas on this side of the pitch.

Opposite the school side, it is mostly open flat, or slightly stepped standing, although there is a small cover around the halfway line. The team dugouts are also located on this side of the ground which makes it very difficult for those on the ‘bench’ to see the action on a sunny day. At the south end behind the goal is the small covered seated Alan Simpson Stand. This simple-looking stand runs for around a quarter of the width of the pitch, with standing at the front and small terraces on either side. There are 100 seats in four rows and it is raised above the playing area, meaning that spectators need to climb a small set of stairs to access it. This stand is covered and is free of any supporting pillars, ensuring an uninterrupted view of the game. There is good legroom and the seats are comfortable. This end also has the Social Club to one side and the club’s dressing rooms, meaning that the teams come onto the pitch from that end. As the team dugouts are located along the far side of the pitch this leads to a bit of a procession of players and club staff at half and full-time. On the opposite, the North End is a small covered terrace which sits directly behind the goal, with an open terrace to either side. This has been named The Keith Hussey Stand. It is rather a ramshackle affair with 20 scaffold poles along the front holding up the roof, but some roofs are better than none. The stadium has a set of eight small floodlight pylons, four of which run down each side of the pitch. As well as toilets in the clubhouse there is a separate toilet block in the small car park.

In August 2018 the ground was renamed the Jezzards Beveree Stadium in a corporate sponsorship deal with a local firm of Estate Agents.

Normally a friendly welcome awaits the visitor to the Beveree Stadium. It is a testament to the hospitality of the Club, that no one can remember the last time that fans were segregated at the ground.

After approximately two miles and on reaching Hampton, turn left onto the High Street, then immediately turn left into Station Road. Take the next right into Beaver Close for the Beveree Stadium entrance.

There is only a small car park at the ground itself, so it is a case of street parking.

Hampton Railway Station is located less than half a mile away from the ground. It is served by trains from London Waterloo, two per hour throughout the day on the line to Shepperton. On exiting the station turn left along Station Road. Beaver Close and the entrance to the Beveree Stadium are half a mile down Station Road on the left.

Please note that Hampton Wick and Hampton Court are different stations on the network. Although Hampton Court is just over a mile away from the Stadium, Hampton is closer.

  • Hampton & Richmond v Dartford
    National League South
    Monday 29th August 2016, 3pm
    Brian Scott (Neutral fan – Doing the 202)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and Beveree Stadium?

    Hampton & Richmond had recently been promoted to the National League South so I decided to pay them a visit to add to my list in my quest to complete the 92, Scotland's four leagues and the whole of the National League to make up the 202.

    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

    I travelled by train from Ipswich to Stratford and then took the Jubilee underground line to London Waterloo. With a stop off at Clapham Junction for an hour to watch trains go by! There are trains every half an hour that go to Shepperton stopping at Hampton. It a rather slow journey as the trains stop at every station. Finding the ground was no problem thanks to this guide.

    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?

    I arrived early and once I had found the Beveree ground I walked a short distance and found the river Thames. Bought an ice cream and the chap who sold it to me offered to take me in his ferry boat to the other side of the river. I declined as I told him I had other things planned for the afternoon. I could just see the bridge over the river near Hampton Court, but could not see the Palace itself. I walked round the outside of the church which is right beside a pub which I did not use.

    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the Beveree Stadium?

    On returning to the ground and entering, I had a good look around, noting details of the stands and counting the seats to help Duncan update this excellent guide. There is no away end or away area as such. Many of the roofs to the stands are held up with scaffold poles, but this type of roof is better than no roof, so we mustn't criticise at this level of the game. However I was very surprised to note just how many seats were damaged or missing in the "green seat stand". For the first half I sat in the Main Stand and I found myself in amongst some Dartford fans. They were very friendly indeed and during the game there was some light hearted banter between them and some home supporters. Many of the seats in this stand have a restricted view of one or other of the goals, as the supporting pillars are quite thick. At half time I moved to the Alan Simpson Stand and had a very comfortable seat with an excellent view of the pitch. As is normal at this level of the game the home and away fans swapped ends at half time, this meant me sitting with another group of Dartford fans.

    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

    I have been to hundreds of games in my life and seen many balls land on the roof of stands or go right over and have to be retrieved. But this is the first time that I have seen a match ball caught up in the branches of a tree! A short while after a new ball had been provided the stuck ball fell down and onto the pitch. The home team started well and on eight minutes it was 1-0. The Dartford keeper kicked the ball out only for it to hit a Hampton & Richmond player and rebound into the goal. In their first serious attack in the 17th minutes Dartford equalised. After 29 minutes the Dartford number 4 gave away a free kick which resulted in a goal and about 10 minutes after that the same player scored an own goal. The Dartford fans who I was sitting with said that he had only recently returned from a suspension and they were not pleased with him. Not long into the second half and it was 4-1 and the game was now beyond Dartford.

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    Getting away at the end of the game was no problem with a half mile walk back up Station Road to the Railway Station and the 17.20 train back to Waterloo.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    A very relaxed day out to south west London in the sunshine in my shorts. There's no tension when you are not particularly bothered about the final result. I've now done 183 different grounds at all levels, but my number is paltry compared to the man I met outside Hampton railway station. He was looking for the ground so we walked down Station Road together and he went in probably to the club house. I met him again later on inside the ground and then at the station. He told me he was from Switzerland and he has been to well over 1,000 different grounds in the UK and Europe. After the game he was staying with a friend in Manchester before going up to Inverness the next day to attend a match in the Highland League. Wow what dedication to football stadia!

  • Hampton and Richmond Borough v Chelmsford City
    National League South
    Saturday 1st April 2017, 3pm
    Andrew Wood (Neutral fan)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting the Beveree Stadium?

    I hadn't been to the Beveree Stadium in about eight years, so time to go again!

    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

    One of the easiest ever. Train to Hampton, then a five minute walk along the main street to the ground.

    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?

    There are two pubs on the walk between station and ground. The Railway Belle was empty, and you wondered if it was actually open, while the Worlds End seemed packed with thirsty locals and Chelmsford fans. So into the ground at 14.15 for a pint and read of the colourful, and fairly good programme.

    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the Beveree Stadium?

    The Beveree is another non-league gem. I remember when all league grounds had their own identity, and were unique. Now they seem all the same, so non-league grounds hold an esthetic appeal. The Beveree (a great name) has a covered terrace along half of one side of the ground, with two separate, slightly dilapidated seating areas next door. Along the other side is just basic standing with a small covered area. Behind one goal is some covered terracing, but behind the other is the gem that is the 'Alan Simpson Stand'. This is a small but compact seating area, above a standing area, and alongside Hampton clubhouse and executive area. This stand on it's own is worth a look, and gives the Beveree it's own identity.

    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

    This was a play-off clash so a good game expected. Chelmsford had over 100 fans there which created a good atmosphere. Initially the Chelmsford players seemed petty, contesting every minor decision with the referee and his assistants. It soon settled down though, and Chelmsford were excellent on the break, scoring twice in the first half hour, to give them a commanding and deserved 2-0 half time lead. For what it's worth, Anthony Church, I felt was Chelmsford's best player when he wasn't arguing with the officials, covering every blade of grass, setting up attacks, and defending in his own penalty area.

    In the second half, Hampton attacked, but couldn't get through an excellent Chelmsford defence. Had they done so, you felt Chelmsford would have gone up the other end and scored a third. It finished 2-0 in the end to Chelmsford and was a deserved victory. Hampton dominated possession in second half, but had no cutting edge. Food and drink were okay, reasonably priced with pie and chips at £4, which were very pleasant. Usual burgers and hot dogs available from a small hut behind the goal. The Beveree also has a decent sized clubhouse with a couple of proper real ales on, although with it being a warm day, I went for a lager, Coors at £3.80 which was nice, if a bit pricey by clubhouse standards. There were two lots of toilets, one in the clubhouse, and a large portakabin outside, both reasonably clean and tidy. There's also a decent club shop, and a programme hut in the ground which is worth visiting (although the latter closed at half time).

    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

    Dead easy. A five  minute walk back to Hampton Railway Station and on the train home.

    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

    The older I get, the more disillusioned I get with visiting league grounds, so it's great to have clubs like this on my doorstep. The Beveree is a proper ground and only £12 to get in and I saw a decent game. I Really can't fault Hampton and the Beveree, and look forward to visiting again next season.

  • Hampton and Richmond Borough v Braintree Town
    National League South
    Saturday 24th March 2018 3pm
    Myles Munsey (Ground hopper)

    My coordinates these days are rooted very firmly in National League South territory. I have a mind eventually to cover most grounds at this level, but it is not a do or die project. The Beveree being within sensible travelling distance has been in my sights for some time – I was not to be disappointed. Hampton & Richmond’s objective is automatic promotion – Braintree Town a possible playoff berth. The game promised much as did the ground itself.
    Getting there
    As I had a reason for being in London that morning anyway – the Ian Allan bookshop at Waterloo, it was dead easy to pick up a Shepperton train and alight at Hampton. From there as this guide states, it is but a gentle stroll to the ground which is easy to find.
    First impressions
    If the impression of a football ground is the sum of its parts then the Beveree blew me away. This is a football ground as I remember them – no frills – no airs and graces, just a good honest workaday football venue and like many in this league tucked away in leafy suburbia. Consider if you will the hotchpotch of miniscule stands and basic terraces – some covered, some not. There is a lavish use of good old corrugated iron and where else would you find the club crest adorning the lawnmower shed or wooden school desk type tables in the press box? The ground is not exactly pretty – they will have to bring the paint pot out one day – but the setting is most pleasant, the pitch being bordered by a brick wall on the school side and overlooked by a fine array of mature trees.
    I had already availed myself of a packed lunch to eat aboard the train – my usual tactic these days (time and money saved), so it was straight from the station to the ground. I went in early as I needed the facilities (the train being without) and entered through the splendid red and blue turnstile booths. Once inside, I discovered that both the toilets and the club shop were housed in large containers. As I had already eaten, Hammonds Kitchen Menu was overlooked.  I did, however, note the prices:
    Burger £3
    Double burger £6
    Burger with cheese/bacon £3.50
    Hot dogs/Pies £2.50
    Chips £1.50
    Tea, coffee, hot chocolate/Bovril £1
    Soup £1.50
    With programme in hand, I took up position on the school side making a point of standing on the tiny covered terrace. I had to make adjustments every now and again as the view was periodically obstructed.
    The game
    I’ll be honest. The first half was not thrilling. But it was memorable for two things. A wonderful one-handed save by Seny Dieng following a pile driver from Braintree’s Barrington then the Iron’s Billy Crook being shown a straight red for a nasty challenge on Josh Casey. So no goals at half time but Braintree down to 10 men
    The second half was way better but still no goals (too many misplaced passes) and then out of nothing Braintree scored. With 12 minutes left and the Beavers pushing men forward the old trap of being caught on the break happened. Three against one and Marcel Barrington had a fairly simple job of rounding off a good move. Could the ten hold out for a smash and grab? Well no they couldn’t. On 81 minutes a Hampton corner was not properly cleared and from the next cross, Ben Wynter fair belted the loose ball into the roof of the net.  That seemed like the entertainment over for the day but in the lengthy stoppage period, Luke Allen found time to commit another rash challenge. Second yellow card and off. Braintree down to 9 but they held out.
    A rather strange match and the attendance of 874 was encouraging. The two sending’s off were somewhat out of context as this was not a bad-tempered affair. 1-1 was about right but with other top teams winning, the result did not enhance the prospects of either side.
    Getting away
    A gentle stroll back to Hampton station for the 17.23 to Waterloo. Over to Paddington then direct train home.
    Overall thoughts
    A super day out for under £10.00 – (I’m bus pass vintage these days so they knock a bit off the bill). Three quarters of the way into this fixture I thought I had made a bad choice but the game as described was an eventful one.  I have waxed lyrical about the Beveree and with good reason. Where else could you find a ground in this guide where you can watch football next to a man and his dog, amidst fans swigging beer and puffing fags (no restrictions here!) and with daffodils growing wild in the standing areas? And where stewards keep a low profile.
    This is the type of proper football ground which owes nothing to modern construction fads and which is almost extinct. Go while you can. It’s a good one. The purists will love it. I certainly did.
  • Hampton and Richmond Borough Football Club v Havant and Waterlooville Football Club (…. phew that's a few letters!)
    National League South
    Tuesday 6th August 2019, 7.45pm
    Ian Thomas (Havant & Waterlooville)

    Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting the Beveree Stadium?
    The first away game of a new season, optimism is still high, the world-weariness of yet another disappointment hasn't set in.. it was sunny and hot!
    How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
    An easy enough journey from the south coast, traffic in west London was always to be expected but we had set off in good time to park at the ground for the sum of £1.
    What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
    We walked down to Marini's Chippy approximately 15 minutes walk away past Hampton Village Green. As we arrived Paul Doswell and Ian Baird the Havant management team were just leaving. Nice to see they were preparing for the match as only true sportsmen can! A quick chat about the team etc was followed by some excellent fish and chips.
    What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the Beveree Stadium?
    Ramshackle…. almost a typical non-league stadium with an array of stands built at different times to differing standards. A nice new stand sits high behind one goal with a collection of 5 or 6 other stands dotted around. It looked like some serious rebuilding work of the wooden floor was being carried out on the Main Stand along the touchline which was out of bounds for this match.
    Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
    A cracker, an early Havant goal looked to see them in control. However, Hampton came roaring back into a 3 -1 lead just after half time. Havant looked dead and buried but 2 substitutions changed the game and 3 goals in 10 minutes turned the game on its head into a 4 – 3 win for Havant. The Clubhouse was large and welcomed all fans. I bought a soft drink for £1, the food wagon outside looked to be doing good business too.
    Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
    A quick exit back through west London and onto the A3.
    Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
    A very enjoyable evening out, a good match always helps this of course!
