It is with this in mind that we inform you that The Carthium Group Limited and i
ts subsidiaries, including Coldseal Windows and Doors Limited, ceased trading wi
th effect from close of business yesterday, 2nd of November.

We would recommend that you do not pay any deposits or release any money to Cold
seal or any individual claiming to represent them.

WindowQuoter is in business to protect the customer and if you were recommended
to Coldseal by us and took advantage of our free Deposit Protection Scheme your

Presume it means a lot more cold calling for someone, but under a different company name <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/whistling.gif" alt="" />

Think I read somewhere that Hornchurch have several backers - can't all be into double glazing can they?

The only strange thing is that none of the officials or people in the know are posting on the hornchurch forums today (so far)

Confguide

The latest news on Confguide says all their players have been released.

Don't know how accurate this all is - but shame if it is the case.

Suppose everyone will jump on Canveys case relying on Jeff King.

Seems they may pull out of sponsoring the Carthium cup as well.

Yep - I'm not gloating over any misfortune.

Heaven knows we have had enough stick over the years. They have a lot of good fans with a lot of enthusiasm.

They seem to have attracted a hard core following and I'm sure these will stick with their club whatever happens.

I'm sure they will turn a team out by hook or by crook. They'll still have a revenue stream from the bar and also the fans - I think they were averaging 800 at a home game. They may lose a lot of the glory hunters and hangers on but I think they have done enough to keep a good paying hardcore. The cash just won't be there to pick and chose who and what they want. Consolidation may be the keyword. They will have to work a lot harder in the league the same as Grays and Thurrock do on a 200 - 300+ crowd.

Any way I wish their loyal fans all the best.

Will we end up in a simlar situation where we are punching above our weight - not now but in future years?

Hard to believe what is happening there. I imagine there'll be a few told you so's but it's devestating to see this happen to a club at such an extraordinary pace.

In the last 24 hours I've spoken to two friends who are Urchins' fans and were there before the money arrived and they are in a real state of shock. What they've both said is as long as there is still a club left to support that's all that matters.

Hornchurch will survive but they pursued a dream too vigourously. They wanted Conference football too quickly. It took us 10 years to get from the Essex Senior to the Conference. It took Hornchurch just over three to go from Ryman Third division to top of the Conference South. They didn't need to spend beyond their means to achieve it.

They'll be back but it's a lesson to us all.

tbh, speaking for myself only, the writing was on the wall for a while.
Only an ostrich would have thought we were immune to situations which have now become reality.
It's not worth dissecting the rights or wrongs with what went on. A few of us voiced concerns over certain issues...
Bridge Avenue became "TellyTubby land" for a while. The TV is switched off now....we can concentrate on becoming a "proper club" again. And from a supporters POV, dare I say it, it's actually quite exciting. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

They've been clubs in far worse situations than Hornchurch and have survived. You'll have to do things the hard way but somehow you'll get through it.
