I'm possibly the only person who doesn't know this . . . but do Hornechurch have a wealthy benefactor?

If money talks they surely have to be "hot" favourites for this fixture considering this season they have recruited ex-League/top Conference players and employ a full time playing staff with gates under 1000.

Last season, in a reserve fixture at Stonebridge Road I recall them turning up in a team coach with the logo Hornechurch F.C. on it. How many non-league teams can afford their own team bus? (I'm assuming they owned it of course!)

Of course money doesn't win games as the Fleet have proved time and time again. My bet is a draw with us to win in the replay at Home.

Well I think its going to be a corker of a cup tie. Sadly I have to make a choice between this one or Carlisle at home in the league. I think its going to be Hornchurch, you know.

we've done away with the logo'd team coach..the reserves use it now...to crass by far.....

no one notices the executive pullman with the blackened windows and the three hostesses that the team travel in nowadays...very low key...

our bryco benefactor fcked orf with all the money from last seasons FA Cup run and the blonde triplets that worked behind the urchins bar....

he was last seen at the daggers handing out free shirts to female supporters...

apparently he was wearing thigh length moon boots with frills on ..... <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/arrr.gif" alt="" />

Surely you chaps must still have a benefactor of some sort, though? The likes of Caskey and Jackson can't come cheap.
