    Message from Jim

    I would like to thank everyone that put nice messages on AFC Hornchurch’s twitter page and forum. It means so much to me, I was overwhelmed and humbled by them all. After making this heart wrenching decision, which I felt was best for the club, I thought it best to address you, the fans, who have supported me throughout my entire time in charge here at this great club. Not only have you supported me through the good times, you have backed me in the bad times aswell, which is a rare thing in today’s world. Whoever inherits the managers job, will inherit the best fans and people in football today. Hornchurch will always be in my heart, and I will remain an Urchin for the rest of my days. Last but not least, I’d like to thank Colin and the directors for giving me the opportunity all them years ago. My next big decision is east side or riverside? Come on you Urchins, Jim

    The well deserved plaudits for today's performance will surely flood in but a mention for the Urchins behind the goal who resisted the urge to taunt 'head fans with well loved classics such as "10 men, we only need 10 men" and "1-0 and you messed it up". Standing by the Home bench was also interesting as they became increasingly irate. The assistant manager putting his fist through the perspex when we equalised was unexpected and one of the other coaches complaining to the ref "He took 15 seconds from when you blew the whistle" also amused. But beyond that, oh my goodness, talk about knuckle down and give blood, sweat and tears to get a result. When George got the red card it was "gonna be difficult to get a point out of this", then at 1-0 down it was "hope this doesn't turn into a nightmare" then back to "a long time to hold on for a point" . Reflecting at half time though I thought Hx had created more chances, including hitting the post and stayed that way for the first 20 of the second half and justly rewarded with the lead. As legs got tired in the final ten+five it turned into "We don't deserve to lose these three points" but again the boys dug deep and managed the game through to the final whistle. Whisper it softly but time to stop looking over shoulders at the drop zone and time to look upwards at mid table. Next two games at the Bridge can get Hx up there.

    Well what can you say to that performance absolutely outstanding to go down to 10 men and then come back from 1-0 down to win 1-2 is outstanding the team worked so hard the midfield was brilliant spence with his goal Clark with his holding play but christou that boy never stops chasing balls and is a great asset to the team the defence were solid and Ron and Charlie were brilliant so a great performance roll on next week

    Apologies for my language but f***ing get in there. That was up there with some of our best results following Hx. 10 men after 10 mins, 2 men available on the bench, 1-0 down and win 2-1. Outstanding boys!

    What's happened?

    As a newcomer to the Urchin cause I have only ever seen Nathan Cooper on the opposing team but he always stood out with awesome performances. Glenn seems to have settled quickly though and his experience at higher levels will hopefully get the clean sheets coming in again. From my Thurrock days, it took a while for Jordan to find a settled position rather than filling in wherever necessary as a utility player but once he started sitting in front of the back 4 at the bottom of a diamond he found his home, from comments I have read many long-term Urchins seem to think the same way. I am also a long-time fan of Joe Christou and was very pleased to see him back in action - and again what I have read on Twitter, match reports etc. also identified him as making an immediate impact. Also, in the short time I've been following the team, I have never seen someone hit the post so many times as George Purcell - if either or both against Folkestone had gone in I'm certain we'd have won that game. George Saunders - how does he not get kicked ten yards into touch to slow him down after mugging off another full back? But, my goodness, when he is on it he is unplayable! To me, he sometimes seems to rush when he has more time to wait for a better situation to develop but so many assists already and can only get better with time. I could also wax lyrical about all the other regular starting XI (could also bitch but I tend to be glass half full) and it is frustrating that the results aren't matching up with the quality of the football. But, 3rd to 15th are covered by only 10 points so string a few results together, get on the bottom of that ladder and then suddenly another couple of results can jump you several places up the table.

    The great escape

    Yep, looked like it was going to be a repeat of Bishops Stortford where we did everything but score. A neutral would have had difficulty in deciding who was the play-off team. Second half was much improved and the tactical switch to three in midfield to let Saunders roam worked well. A textbook example of why you play to the 95th minute and well done to Sonny, not very many senior minutes but composure beyond his years in a crowded penalty area. The result also crowns Dorking Wanderers as champions, another team much improved from last year but also now playing on 4g this year - is it just coincidence with Worthing in 4th that's 3 out of 4 although Harlow also have 4g and another heavy defeat at home today has moved them to the bottom of the table. So, still 8 points clear of the relegation zone and only 4 games left, two of which are at home against the bottom two. Still not mathematically safe but difficult to see Hornchurch not in the Premier League next year.

    Player update please

    Message from Colin Just an update 5 players in from wabbey all played in Ryman premier last year unfortunately a couple are injured ,jimmy was trying to bring new players in himself we have had an awful run of injuries but the fact is we haven’t won in the league since 2nd October that plainly isn’t good enough we hope to have 2 more players in tomorrow who will improve the squad. You all know my relationship with jimmy so I was gutted to see him resign because I knew he could turn it round but in the short period of time I’ve seen mark at work we have the right appointment

    cup of tea

    Thanks for everything Jim

    I don’t know where to begin with this. Jimmy has put his heart and soul into this football club for a long time and it’s going to be very weird not seeing him in the dugout or hearing ‘man on’ coming from that direction. We’ve had our ups and downs as a club but I can’t begin to imagine the problems and issues behind the scenes of being a football manager especially at Hornchurch where one thing you can guarantee it’s never been boring. To me there’s been more ups then downs , the promotions and the ESL cup wins culminating in a promotion as champions in a difficult league to get out of and we all know the real reason why we got relegated from the conference south. Jimmy has throughout acted with dignity and honesty and has always tried to do the best for this club and I think there’s a lot of fans who are going to miss him. Good luck to Jimmy with whatever he’s does next - it will be good for him not to have to shoulder the burden of responsibility of football management and to be able to relax a bit more!
