HU17.net has caught up with Richard Durham on the eve of the massive cup encounter that will take place this weekend featuring Hodgsons FC and Beverley Town.
Durham has played for both sides in though his fitness levels have hampered his football career earning him the name ‘The Durham Hamstring’.
On Saturday like many others in Beverley Durham will be pitch side to watch the two football giants of Beverley battle it out in the cup.
Richard Durham is gutted he can’t be involved in such a big derby game which is going to be full of nail biting crunches, drama and controversial decisions.
At heart everybody knows he is a Beckside lad and should have Hodgsons FC on my jersey week in week out but when after he signed for Beverley Town as an apprentice he just became town through and through.
After breaking into the 1st team and with 8 fantastic years spent gracing that atmospheric Norwood Recreation Ground his time with town was fizzled out during one of the teams most successful seasons.
“I was coming to the end of my time with the club that was obvious but it was nice to bow out with a winner in the cup final, that was special moment for me.”
Leaving Town he got himself transfer to the up and coming which club that is Hodgsons FC, but with injury he lost his way.
Despite playing just four games for the Tanners some of the old magic in the injury riddled legs shone through as Durham scored two goals for the Tanners.
When asked about who will win this weekend he said;
“My predictions for the game are basically whoever scores the most goals wins the match.”
“Jonny Ricardo has to boss the midfield and both defences have to be on song because I see it being a game of taking the chances from bad mistakes or decisions.”
“Adam Foster is the threat from Hodgsons FC and if stotty is the player he once was, he can cause a problem on the wing.”
“Whoever the referee is has a big job on his hands, but my prediction is Hodgsons FC are struggling of late and Beverley Town are cruising but we all know form goes out the window in these games.”
“So I predict a hard fought contest and with that in mind I am tipping a 3-1 win for Beverley Town.”
