    A big thank you to all the HX guys that turned up to play and watch this annual event. It was indeed a great day. This year the result was in serious doubt right up to the last few overs, a great effort by the HX team. let’s hope we can carry on this great event next year.

    Guys I'm sure you are aware that all players apart from contracted players are free to leave the club. We cannot sign players on again until July 1st any club that does unless they are being placed on contract are taking a big risk. Let's keep the faith and see what July brings we may be in for a few surprises. COYT.⚽️⚽️

    Fundraising Dinner

    A big thank you to Christine Hamilton and anybody else involved in organising last night's dinner to raise funds for the club. Some good money was raised - well done too to Steve Read who conducted the auction - and a great time was had by all. Gary Mabbutt was entertaining as guest speaker and had some very complimentary things to say about our club and good profile was achieved with several local politicians in attendance. Well done to the many supporters who backed the evening - hopefully we won some new fans and future financial opportunities too.

    It doesn’t but it does take time to check facts and as you well know different people deal with different aspects of the club so there can be a delay in gathering info, or would you prefer rumours. When you was a director of this club what did you do personally to ensure information was sent out to members?

    Are you only allowed to be 'outspoken' after a certain amount of posts? Let me know how many so i know for next time 👍 Nope! I've just got plenty of other things to do with my time, maybe some others should try it, must get a bit boring sitting on here waiting to moan about something. But each to their own

    I'll think you will find that no one is wishing ill for the team, just expressing their frustration/sadness at seeing a team they have followed for many years disbanded so quick and coming to terms with it. We all know football moves on but I think you will find most long time supporters do not like change. I'm really looking forward towards next season even thou some of my favourite players have left. Dibs, COYU'S ..... PS we are a family team and supporters and all are most welcome.

    I think as you've said yourself before, your circumstances mean that you don't go regularly now and looking from the outside on this situation you can perhaps make judgements from a less emotive perspective. I think for me, it's watching practically the entire squad leaving in the space of less than one season and you do have to ask the question of whether the replacements are going to be better. At the end of the day it's nice to see success on the pitch and if that happens then great. I would also want any progress at the club to be organic and sustainable and that certainly seems to be the case here with the academy and the current future plans for the club and's that's so encouraging. I don't want a boom and bust situation occurring, we've been there before and the bust part of that wasn't pleasant.

    I think if Cooper was to go there may well be a fan revolt. 😇 You're right they ain't just abbey players but Thurrock players but they could come from anywhere, wholesale changes are hard to take and from a personal selfish opinion the only fans benefiting currently are the old Thurrock fans seeing their team rise from the ashes. N.b this ain't a dig or moan but a mere observation.

    When you say Goodie was only paid for one game you need to get your facts right, he got a lot more than one payment. Make sure you know what your talking about before you make rash statements, especially concerning people's earnings that have sweet FA to do with you ‼️

    It may take a very long time if you have an in tray from your employer which must take precedence. Sorry for being old fashioned but I came from a time when work was placed in an in tray rather than an email system which does not differentiate between work and leisure, commercialism or just plain junk.

    Auds, I love the fact that you think you understand what the word 'sarcasm' means. It sums up what I wrote about baiting a retard. There really isn't anything I wrote that was sarcastic (check out the actual meaning of the word). And for the second time, I really am not LS! And...you also failed the modicum of intelligence test.

    Hey there - first thing by all means stick your beak here , we like to think we’re a friendly lot Firstly, we’re not a fan owned club. Fair to say we’ve made some good signings, think that’s surprised a lot of us fans here. We were worried that all the players were going to be kicked out for ones of similar quality (or worse) so we’re just as surprised as probably yourselves (have a look back on this and other threads for our concerns). No idea on the financials though ???

    New Players or retained players.

    Old Towner that is not exactly accurate. As I understand the rules regarding signing players who are not put on a contract. The club offers terms for the player to commit to play for the season,if the player accepts we register him as our player with the league,and he cannot play for any other club unless a loan or dual registration is agreed. Other clubs though can put in a 7 day approach for a signed player,ie informs the club they intend to offer terms to sign our player,our club has 7 days to offer new terms ect to player,then after 7 days the other club can approach the player.This is why some players are not inclined to sign contracts,as the contracts usually put off an approach. At the end of a season all non contract players become free agents and cannot be resigned untill a certain date.This is the reason for silence from the club as they do not want to tip off other clubs of players who may be available.Why make it easier for other clubs to grab players we would like to retain.

    We seem to be forgetting who is ultimately responsible for this whole BREXIT fiasco and making our once proud Country the laughing stock it has sadly become, that is David Cameron for calling the referendum in the first place, he didn't have to

    WELL, HE'S ARRIVED AGAIN IN THE UK WITH A MASSIVE ENTOURAGE !! He's made outrageous statements about the Mayor of London AND Megan. It'll be interesting to see how much protest there is over the next three days. Incidently, I loved the 'art-work' someone manage to cut into the grass alongside the runway at Stansted before he landed !

    No bitterness with me whatsoever with Thurrock being involved - the more the merrier and if it means you guys get somewhere you think of as home after what unfortunately happened to your ground then great. If we have a great season I will be happy - looking forward to it.

    Almost feels full circle for me as I watched many of the Thurrock team leave and go to Hornchurch when Colin and Jimmy moved over and we started again with much of Waltham Forest stepping up three leagues (including Leon McKenzie).
