HAMPTON & Richmond hero Joel Ledgister has warned his new team-mates not to start celebrating too hard just yet.
New signing Ledgister netted twice on his debut as Hampton won only their second game of the season on Saturday, beating Eastbourne Borough 3-1.
That moved them off the bottom of Blue Square South, but the former Sutton striker made it clear the hard work is still to come.
He said: “I had only done one training with Hampton before the match, so I am very happy with the two goals I scored.
“For the second goal I looked up and was going to pass the ball, but I was under pressure and had to make a quick decision, so I went for goal.
“It’s a great result, but it’s more important that we don’t celebrate like we have won a cup game or a trophy. We need to keep our heads down and start focusing on the next game.”
Beavers boss Mark Harper finally got his man after spotting Ledgister over the summer, and the 24-year-old admitted he was familiar with Hampton too.
He added: “I watched them against Eastleigh earlier this season, but the football we played today was better.
“I haven’t played much this season because I’ve been injured, so I’m pleased to be here on loan.”
