Hampton & Richmond Borough boss Alan Dowson has hinted defender Joe Hicks' loan move to Corinthian Casuals could be extended.

Hicks, who switched to the Ryman Premier League title chasers in the summer, scored on his Casuals return as boss James Bracken's men crashed out of the Surrey Senior Cup via a 3-1 defeat to National League South Sutton United on Wednesday.

The centre back, who has not featured much for the Beavers in recent weeks, agreed a loan move to the Ryman Division One South play-off chasers a fortnight ago.

And Dowson, who is monitoring the situation, has admitted Hicks' spell away could become a month-long agreement depending on how it goes.
