A 40th-minute goal from Ricky Wellard sealed the Beavers progression in the competition despite a spirited effort from the Urchins at the Beevers.

Gary McCann’s side bagged £15,000 in prize money and will have their name in the hat for the fourth qualifying round draw on Monday.

The hosts had a few early chances but failed to trouble Callum Chafer in the Hornchurch goal before a Bradley Warner free-kick flew straight into the hands of Tom Lovelock.

Up stepped George Purcell for a free-kick in the 19th minute but his effort was blocked, before Hampton put Jim McFarlane’s side under the cosh again.

Three minutes later Hampton went close with another effort as a deep corner was headed down by Michael Corcoran to Rhys Murrell-Williamson but his fierce drive was blocked.

Murrell-Williamson went close again shortly after as he forced Chafer to pull off a save as he let fly from the edge of the box.

The Beavers had a few more chances before eventually finding the net in the 40th minute thanks to Wellard.

The midfielder picked up the ball and drove at the Urchins defence before firing an effort past Chafer at the near post to give his side a lead at the break.

Lovelock was booked for handling the ball outside the area on 50 minutes, but Jamie Hursit sent the free-kick straight into the wall.

Urchins substitute George Saunders started causing problems for the Hampton defence with some good runs and a few dangerous crosses into the box.

But Casey Maclaren was played in one-on-one with Chafer, only to slide his shot wide of the far post in the 59th minute.

The Urchins didn’t give up and Saunders whipped another ball into the box but no one managed to get on the end of it.

In the 69th minute Sean Marks found Tobi Coker who drove a shot towards goal from the edge of the box which Lovelock tipped over the bar.

And a great block from Rian Bray prevented Coker from equalising from 12 yards out in the 77th minute, before Murell-Williamson drilled a shot on goal from the edge of the box as he tried to double his side’s lead.

Hornchurch kept pushing for an equaliser and almost found one in the 88th minute when a free-kick took a couple of deflections and ended up with Leon McKenzie heading the ball over the bar from close range.

Time eventually ran out, though, for the Bostik Premier Division side who saw their unbeaten start to the season come to an end as Hampton walked away winners.
