  1. Couldn’t sleep last night due to nerves. Think drifted off at 1.30, woke up 4.30 absolutely buzzing. I’ve done a couple of post match posts during this campaign but I am still absolutely euphoric after the fantastic team performance today. I don’t know where to start. felt like we were playing against 12 men in the first half and couldn’t settle. It was a scrappy goal to concede and they nearly got a second. Micky parcell started to stamp his authority on the game and the longer the match went on, the more we came into it. Their number 6 was an absolute unit btw. second half we

    Hereford 1-3 Hornchurch

    Jean and myself could not travel to see the match so we settled down and watched it on BTSports after the first goal I thought we were going to be runners up but how wrong I was. We held our own and come the second half Urchins stepped up several gears the lads played out of their skins it was like living in a dream. We equalised then it happened we went 2 1. Up heart in mouth as we keep the lead. where the ref got 6 mins added on I don't know but low and behold we got the third goal and seven minutes past the 90 final whistle blew we had won. I admit I had tears in my eyes it took time for i

    Good enough for the players good enough for me. Best marketing tool in the whole campaign got us media attention, people warmed to it. Why would you not jump all over it besides all great teams started in a pub

    Hereford 1-3 Hornchurch

    An utterly fantastic day. Actually the win over Notts County was the big one for me - as it was SO unexpected and it got us to Wembley - but I'm still pinching myself after yesterday's performance. The culmination of a huge amount of work by the team, the management, and all behind the scenes. Thoroughly deserved: I'm so happy for everyone, especially Colin and Ken. I genuinely never thought I'd live to see this day. And I'm quite old. Let's hope we can keep the squad together and kick-on next season. And keep a goodly number of those new (or returning) fans. I'm really quite co

  5. Any minute now I'm going to wake up away at Margate on a Tuesday night in January suffering from Hypothermia!! Made it back to not so sunny Gloucestershire (a mere walk in the park compared to the previous poster!) tired but wouldn't have missed this for the world. What an amazing day, words fail me (well not really!). Still can't believe that happened. A lot of people need to take credit for this, not least the players but also to Alex, Colin, Tony, Ken, Mark Stimpson, all the staff, little Tel (who apparently had his own fan club with a flag) Jordan, and all the volunteers including bir

  9. In fairness most of the Hereford supporters we spoke to after the game were complimentary about our win but guess there will always be some throwing the toys out of the pram. As for the amazing day yesterday words fail me. Everyone associated with the Club deserve to feel especially proud of themselves. Yesterday was justification for all their hard work and efforts. Special praise must go to the players, management, and coaching staff. I attended with ex-players from the 80s and we all agreed the passion, desire, and effort of each Hornchurch player on that pitch puts a lot of

  15. I don't think you understand. The club that was reformed in 2005 was the one he bankrupted. And then he nearly did it again a few years later. I don't think many people can deny that he did some good things for the club when he was involved, but our progress since he walked away, culminating in Saturday's momentous victory, was despite him not because of him. The only guests of honour at the game were the ones that dug us out of the dire situation we were left in. Does that answer your question ?

  18. As part of the Leverstock Green "hierarchy" previously mentioned and personally interviewed him I feel I'm well placed to offer my view! Fergus, Scott and Paul impressed us greatly over the other 21 applicants and 6 that we face to faced interviewed. He was our unanimous choice ahead of many well known faces in non league football and are confident he can take us to the next level but his remit is merely stability and building morale and team spirit for the forthcoming season. In the short time already closely working with him I am greatly impressed with his attitude, humbleness

  21. Magnificent result. I listened to the first 15 minutes on local radio. To be fair, Hereford sounded on top and the commentary was a bit biased as they commentate on Hereford all the time. I decided to do a bit of gardening and fearing the worst I came in and checked Footballwebpages for the result. I mentioned in an earlier post that my first game was in 1968, the year before the moon landing, and that was definitely more likely to happen than a Wembley appearance in my lifetime. i think I’ll have a beer.

    No Way A Pub Team

    Use the term pub team not in derogatory way not bringing the club down at all I have the earlier scarf staying we were a pub team from essex. We got this saying from Lewis FC when we playef them some time ago they had not lost a match we sent down there and beat them i think the score was 5 nil to us and the Lewis manager called us a pub team we took this up to show we were not and the name stuck. The call is not against our club but tongue in cheek to show we are a talented family run club. I would never run Urchins down and never decry what the board, players and fans have done for this clu

In terms of a programme, I will be producing a special edition bumper edition of the first programme of the season with lots of coverage of the game and run. An announcement on the pictures with the trophy will be made very shortly.

  31. As mentioned at various points above, this crest needs to be well ridden! I may no longer be a local but what I've seen this season has me wanting more, a new membership and season ticket is the start. Lets bring in those new fans and get back some of the older ones like myself to give the club the boost it needs. Direct Debit, PayPal or whatever, I'm just waiting........ As long as it's not done over the phone as I still have no voice whatsoever!! Who knows what 2021/22 could bring? Look what happens when you dream big.

  32. wow what a fantastic day out that was. Still sinking in that we went to Wembley and we won the FA Trophy. It's such an amazing feeling to see a team that when I started coming was clawing it's way back from almost non existence to become a team that is written in to history books as a winning side at the home of football. It has been an incredible journey this season in the Trophy watching game after game and as the team took one game at a time I was doing likewise but once we won at Nott's a was not so sure we could win on the day at Wembley and after that first half was not so sure

  33. Agree with jago re: notts county. I was boring anyone who was still listening to me pre match that I thought that was our cup final and was just praying that the team would do themselves proud and put in a credible performance. To go all the way to Wembley having been behind in so many games? tip for future opposition. Don’t score against Hornchurch, it just irritates us kimble - your firm were responsible for the lil tel flag. Any chance you could post a pic on here mate? still buzzing. Glad to hear players have hunger for future success with this club. I love this club and a

  34. Wow. Echo what has already been said. Everything single player was unbelievable...not just for this game but the games leading up to the final too. Throughout this whole covid saga you guys have got us through it. Never did I think when we went 1.0 down Vs bowers did I think we'd end up winning the whole thing! Really looking forward to what the new season brings... hopefully we can ride on the crest of this wave keeping all the new fans and keeping this postive momentum going. Thank you everyone involved

  35. Not seen sour grapes apart from immediate and understandable reaction from their manager post match having been out thought by Stimson. their forum has a thread about “well done to the pub team from Hornchurch” and my favourite response to it is from a bloke who simply said “some fecking pub”. Most of the comments are either criticisms of their managers strategy or simply conceding that the best team won. i am still in stunned disbelief after reading the NLP. It wasn’t a dream. when is the club next open for photo opportunities with the trophy? Or do we save that for first game

    The security by internal.stewards was poor they should have been down in front of fans facing them and backs towards the pitch. Did little or nothing to stop people getting into pitch. I do not condone this practice of going into pitch.
