    From the club and players a big thanks for the wonderful donation, especially to Neil for organising, Neil sits over Riverside with Trevor and arlette, but are more renowned for cheating and winning the quizzes, we are short on numbers but not on heart

I just can't get enough I just can't get enough I just can't get enough I just can't get enough seriously though - well done to the players and staff and legendary groundsmen and our leadership, I am just so happy. it was a strange old match, I don't actually think we were all in the same half when Maidstone made it 4-4. I am so bloody proud of our little pub team from Essex who are keeping the football season alive. thankyou for today Hornchurch. as for the debut youtube stream. volume aside, the commentary was excellent and pitched at just the right l

  5. Huge congratulations to all of the staff and players for pulling off yet another upset against higher league opposition. The spirit within the team to keep coming back, despite being behind or instantly pegged back, was incredible. Also, well done to all involved in the Livestream. It has been a hugely nervous few days, but well done to Jordan and Billy for the stream and camera work. The feedback I've had from neutrals was all really positive. It pains me to say so, but Luke and Jago also deserve huge credit. I've no idea what bollocks they chatted, but massive kudos for having the ba

  13. oh my goodness. oh my shattered nerves. what a professional and clever performance. soaked up some unbelievable pressure and absolutely made the most of our chances. credit to quakers tv - what a professional set up. think their co-commentator a little bit bitter from 2003 still. I am just so happy for the club and the team. the season continues!!

  17. Unbelievable game, did not think that there would be that many goals and we would get passed Maidstone, but we did it. Amazing team performance. Dad has watched the game for a third time on youtube - just cant get enough! Fingers Crossed for a home draw!

  19. Some posts above there is reference to a petition to 'Save the National League Clubs with Support Grants'. I'd just like to say that I think the petition is complete and utter nonsense and that I hope that it sinks without trace. Apart from being ill-timed and ill-judged, it is simply factually wrong. The government has not 'changed the terms of its support', and no-one has 'moved the financial goalposts mid-season'. To those who were actually paying attention it was clear from the outset that the initial grant was a one-off payment. Rather, the truth of the situation is revealed in a

  20. So I've watched quite a few live streams and apart from the unnecessary apologies from the commentary team there is no way you could have known this was a maiden voyage. I can only add my congratulations to those that have gone before for a job extremely well done. Let's hope Monday brings an opportunity for a repeat performance. I mean I love an away day but with no chance of travelling I don't want to be sad to not be able to travel to Darlington etc. so any home draw will be fine for me. Of course we can't be expected to have a chance and I will predict against us in the predictio

  22. First post. As I live in Shropshire now, I thought I would submit the following which may be of interest. My family moved to Upminster Bridge in 1968. We could see the floodlights during night matches through the gap between the houses opposite until they built an extension. We could also hear the starting pistol during athletics meetings and the band competitions. My previous football attending had been to White Hart Lane and Highbury on alternate weeks with an Uncle. Due to this I got to the stadium at 1.30 for a Saturday 3pm game. I’m not sure that anybody was there at that t

  23. Oh, I see. I get it. Nick's knockerz can bet against Hornchurch with nary a word said - but when I do it I'm ostracised. Talk about cronyism of the highest degree. I think this needs an official investigation and maybe a resignation.

  24. Great to hear from an exile Chris. There's quite a few knocking around and I'm sure the web makes it much easier to keep up to date. I lived in Newcastle in the early-mid 1990's and had to wait for the Sunday papers to come out - and even then it was 50:50 if the score would be printed! Mind you that's when we reached rock bottom so I should be thankful for missing all the heartache. Anyway, on the theme of memories, here's a good article from North East Sports News which covers the original Hx v Darlington match back in 2003. Scroll to the bottom as there's some great photos (OK mainl

  25. No I didn't mean from Karen, don't put words in my mouth Rhodes! The Combined Counties League have today announced plans for a mini league in April /May, they're the second league to annonce this following the SW Peninsula, I wonder if we'll see something similar from the SSMFL or will they bury their heads in the sand as per usual!

  40. A big well done to the players and everyone else involved with the club. Down to the bare bones again and we still manage to put in a great performance and result to match. Higgins finishing masterclass and Ellis doing his best impression of the Duracell bunny seemed to do the trick...a couple weeks more to train and hopefully at least having Parcell back should really help bulster the squad. Make no mistake there isn't a club left in the competition that wants to get drawn to us right now. Well played each and everyone one of you.

  43. AFC Fylde make a good point don't they, in a statement the Club say that 'teams are prepared to play in their FA Trophy fixtures but have the hypocrisy to declare themselves unavailable to fulfil their league fixtures, we sincerely hope that the National League take a tough line on those taking this stance'. Darlington and Southport play in the FA Trophy tomorrow however have declared themselves unavailable to fulfil their National League North fixtures on the Tuesday: CLUB STATEMENT| An update on the Guiseley AFC fixture and the integrity of the competition | AFC Fylde

    Rhodes - I can wholeheartedly guarantee you, that I am not being harsh. We would not have won promotion on Scott, I can tell you that for a fact. Berko still would have gone up regardless of our Vase run or not. He was more bothered about looking good on a post match interview than he was about coaching his squad of players. It comes as absolutely no surprise to me to have seen him fail at Aylesbury and to now see him at Bucks Ath. The best thing that could’ve happened, happened at the end of 17/18 season. He left! Yes, 18/19 was rather boring to say the very least of a season,

    Rhodes - I know exactly how I can say that. Can I ask how many games you saw of Scott’s? Or how many times you’ve spoken to Scott? His management cost us the quarter final game with an absolutely woeful squad selection. His overall management, his general demeanour amongst other things was poor. I’m glad he went at the end of the season. Rubbish.

    Rhodes - as I’ve said before, absolutely not. Scott was not a great manager, simple as that. We would not have won both games against Biggleswade FC at all, they were the better team in both fixtures. They were absolutely superb that season in my opinion, a very, very good side that deservedly took the title home.

  47. Firstly I have to say a HUGE thankyou to all the Players and Manager as behind the scenes they have worked as hard as they could to stay fit and stay together when we know many of the players could step up to national leagues thy have chosen to show some loyalty and faith in Mark Stimson and the Urchins and as a result we saw the team win to make it to the next round and deservedly so. What a fantastic performance across the park every player worked hard and contributed to a team performance and it was frustrating to see Kings Lyn early pressure take a slightly unfortunate lead.

    The programme of this match is now available as a free download on our website. King's Lynn please note - it is FREE - we do not charge £15 for our programmes. A big thank you to the volunteers who spent hours forking the pitch to remove the surface water. The match might not have gone ahead without them. The streaming kept on freezing in the first half, but they seemed to have ironed out the problems for the second half. I was impressed with the commentary, though neither of the two commentators were aware that the match would go straight to penalties. They kept on talkin
