  1. County fan here! Many, many congratulations on your deserved progress to Wembley. Your performance on Saturday epitomises what football and Cup competitions are about for us all. I will admit I thought we'd thrash you, but I am delighted you triumphed in the manner you did for your Club and it's supporters, whilst setting an example of playing with hope and desire. All at Notts, I am sure, will have one eye on The Wembley result and sincerely hope you succeed in achieving the dream!! Well done!

  2. I said i'd be back. and here I am. nearly 48 hours on and I am still delirious and giddy over the whole miracle at meadow lane. not sure if was the camera angle or what, but that pitch looked massive and when we went a goal down, the players were blowing hard and I feared we were about to get our backsides handed to us in a brutal way. however. that parcell block. it was a certain goal, but that block defined the entire match for me. blood and guts defending, passion and belief shown everywhere on the pitch. wright pulled off one of the greatest saves ever. the leadersh

  4. Well done to Mark, his coaching staff and the squad for today's incredible achievement against all the odds - you've done the club and yourselves proud. You will always be remembered at Hornchurch FC as legends. Well done also to Colin, Alex, Jordan, Ken, anyone from the Supporters' Association etc etc etc. I've missed out loads of names and some I don't know, but you know who you are and, as someone who saw his first Hornchurch match in around 1982 and where pretty much every season the hope of getting to a Wembley final would be dashed by around mid-October, rest assured you have my u

  8. Literally just stopped crying. What an amazing game. Hornchurch just doesn't know when they're beaten. Never thought anything would top Weymouth but today has done it. It is going to take a while to sink in that our next game is at Wembley (and not Wembley FC, the other one!) Well done to everyone and Karma for Tina as well

  9. Apologies if this is already known or has been mentioned somewhere, but has any other team (or teams) ever beaten six (or potentially seven) teams from higher leagues in a single run in a senior English cup competition? Anyone know? Is this a first? (I would have thought so) What a fantastic achievement Still coming to terms with reaching Wembley

  10. Hi All, The Supporters' Association are planning to produce a scarf for the final. This is our proposed design. The scarf will be provided with white tassels on both ends. Any thoughts?

  11. WOW what has just happened in the last 48 Hours. We have a fantastic club and management team and amazing Fans too and in my 8 seasons coming to the Urchins I never dreamed we would ever get to Wembley and I know many of you have been here longer and remember the buzz of the Weymouth FA Cup tie an beyond but this is so out of this world it's amazing. I am a lucky enough person to be able to spend some time around the First team and all I can say is we have an amazing bunch of players who have such a strong team bond that they have carried the flag for this team all the way to Wembley at

    Celebration

    When I was with Canvey they made it to the final up at Aston Villa. After they won I was the only photographer who went back to Park Lane for the celebrations. I remember the day well. Mind you I hired a stretch limo to go north in style! I really hope you all have a fantastic day / might. One day I will return and invest in the club - I guarantee that!

    Tickets

    If there is one thing I know is the people that run our club will make sure the fans that turn up every week, they know who is who, get tickets (subject to FA giving us some) Who would believe 10 months ago this would even be a discussion

    Tickets

    I hope there will be enough to go round. I am not a season ticket holder nor do I fall into the other categories mentioned. But I have been at all home and away games for 18 years unless I’ve been on holiday!

  18. What a phenomenal performance by the whole Hornchurch FC organisation. 'Congratulations' does not even begin to do justice to your accomplishments. You have made us all so very proud! For the past few years I have been following the team from afar as my personal circumstances prevented me from attending matches. No It wasn't prison!! But now things are different and I will be able to get down to the Bridge when the new season starts. Well done everyone. You have created a legend.

  19. Gents and ladies, whatever happens in the final, I would like to humbly suggest that we have some kind of event to celebrate the monumental effort of our entire club during these “strange times” post 21st June, maybe some sort of bbq or presentation night. Anything, could be fundraiser 50/50 raising cash for club plus local charity. Maybe parcell could recreate the block. Maybe Wright could recreate the save, maybe Dickson could take the roof of the net again.... we knew he f***ing would... Working title “all the way to Wembley” still buzzing. Thank you Hornchurch fc x

  20. 24 hours ago we were just starting to sit down to watch the match, everyone doing their own ore match rituals, thinking whatever happens we are so proud of our boys. What unfolds in the next 3 and a bit hours is something that dreams truly are made of, dare to dream and this is what happens. Stimson, the players abs everyone else involved in the club, if they weren’t at legendary status before yesterday, they sure are now. Cannot wait to show my gratitude on the 22nd May, vocal training begins tomorrow...

  27. No words for who did this. Not going to get angry either. But what an excellent endeavour to replace, am sure Tina would have rather people put money to club expenses for semi final, but sorry Tina, you had love and joy for everyone you came across so have directed my limited resources to put this right. I’ll buy a non-restricted view ticket for semi to make amends.

  28. Fuming about this. Anyone who knew Tina as a person and/or understood the contribution that both she and Ken have made to the football club over a long period of time will understand how senseless this is.

  31. As some of you may be aware Tinas memorial bench was stolen from the memorial garden within the club very recently. This has obviously caused a lot of anger and upset amongst all at the club including Ken and his family. I would like the bench to be replaced at no cost to the family and ask for any form of donation no matter how big or small. We will also invest in securing the bench in a better way. Those who knew Tina knew how much she loved Hornchurch FC and her contributions to the club will never go forgotten. Any donations can be made on the following PayPal link - ht

  33. The thing about non league football is that it's full of trainspotter types (wot - moi?!) so loads of quirky stat sites and groundhopper sites. So I asked your actual question on https://www.nonleaguematters.co.uk/forums/index.php#non-league-football-discussion.4 and got a reply within 30 minutes! If you really wanted, you could check the answer provided at say https://fchd.info/indexb.htm to see who Stortford played in the trophy that year and then look at https://www.nonleaguematters.co.uk/nonleaguetables/lt1980-1981.html to confirm what division/league those teams were in that seas

  35. This is what can happen if you have a vision and the resilience and determination to achieve it. Well done, but really words are not enough for what everyone at the club achieved. This for me tops the 1st/2nd round of FA cup, Weymouth and the slog in the ESL. My first match was Marlow at home - anyone out there know what year that was?? I can then pin down how many years I’ve supported this great club.

  37. I don't think it'll ever sink in that the 'Pub Team from Essex' have gotten to Wembley. As opposed to making up the numbers, let's go and win the thing. I'm bursting with pride and want to thank all involved in this magical journey. The effort from everyone and the hard work put in behind the scenes has been incredible. COYU!

  38. I could not believe the result I had my eyes closed for the penalties. My only regret is that Jean and myself were on a lockdown since March 2020 due to health reasons and could not attend any of the matches this season. We hope to be back soon Well done to all concerned

  46. Appalling, there are some real low lifes out there. What a rotten thing to do. Have we checked the river that flows behind the club towards hacton lane, in case some one thought it was funny to chuck it in there. I know a red sofa was thrown in there towards the end of last week. There's all sorts in that river at the moment...including our car park full sign!!
