    kings lynn

    Afternoon, everyone, Alex Sharp here, I’ve finally found the fabled forum everyone speaks about! Well what an afternoon, I think my best day (so far!) as Hornchurch Chairman, so proud of everyone involved with the club, in really difficult circumstances we put on a show yesterday, on and off the pitch, this is a very special team we are building here and irrespective of what happens with the League next week, it’s been an honour to watch these fellas get better and better every game they play. So many have said it but they left nothing out there yesterday, I saw players exhausted walking off t

  2. 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!

  3. 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

    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

  6. I’m sorry, but this is outrageous. This season I’ve been extremely grateful for (and greatly impressed by), the streaming services for our games offered for free by Hampton & Richmond, Tonbridge Angels and Dulwich Hamlet. Nothing beats being at the match itself, but those clubs put in a tremendous effort so that we could watch the games. The Supporters Association recognised the benefits that these services provide and have spent a significant sum of money so that we could offer both our own and Kings Lynn’s fans the same. We all recognise that we are unlikely to see live footb

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

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

  10. first and foremost - get well soon dibs. I get that all football clubs are losing revenue and are struggling, but to me the £12 price tag is a tad excessive, particularly when you bear in mind that a nowtv 24hr sky sports pass will get you 11 channels you can watch on 2 devices at the same time at pretty high quality for £9.99. do Kings Lynn really think this is any sort of value for money and that if someone wants to watch sport, that they'll spend more to watch them rather than sky? If any football club is going to survive the current crisis, it will be reliant on the goodwill and t

  11. I'm in total disagreement that we should be charging fans the privilege of £12 to watch a game that cannot be attended in person. Let's not forget the good will gestures of Dulwich Hamlet, Tonbridge Angels and Hampton & Richmond for streaming the respective FA Trophy and FA Cup games free of charge. In my opinion, as we are the home team the final say should be with us, the club, as to whether we charge or not although I know that cannot be the case.

    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

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

  15. 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

  19. Also, the rationale behind the donation approach certainly wasn't to "pull a fast one". We had visited Hampton & Richmond in the FA Cup, along with Tonbridge Angels and Dulwich Hamlet in the Trophy. All 3 National South sides streamed for free with an optional donation element. As an example, Dulwich's justgiving page for their stream: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/dhfctv We never looked at these free streams as money lost, nor did we expect to take a cut of their donations, we were just extremely pleased that our supporters could get to watch their team in a behind

  20. As a Kings Lynn fan, its great that you are trying to put the game on for free., we get ripped off almost every week, the programme for our 1st game cost £15. Stick to your guns, you will have the backing of a lot of Lynn fans, we would love it to be free!

  21. It’s a no for me on pure principle basis the £12 fee they mention I assume they want some/all of it ? So from their greed not only do our fans suffer theirs do too! You really would think that in troubled world we all live in today that a smaller club (apparently) trying to bring some cheer to people free of charge they would endorse it not try and prevent it. Twitter here I come Ps well done the SA getting the equipment together and paying the cost class act

  22. Quite frankly I find it ridiculous they are requesting this. We are the smaller club with the smaller budget who were going to stream the game for free yet they are demanding a fee! Let’s not forget the supporters association paid just short of £1000 to get this game out to the fans free of charge! I am fully against Kings Lynns proposal.

With the move to Tier 2 restrictions here in Havering and the potential economic impact that this will bring as we approach winter, the Supporters Association has agreed that we will now collect foodbank donations at each home game, rather than on a monthly basis. Contributions can be left at the Track & Trace stations or Clubhouse entrance.

    After speaking with club officials this morning I think it’s only right the a few things are cleared up in relation to this. The club does not condone foul and abusive behaviour towards players, officials or staff and has reiterated this the last few years and with a number of posters around the ground highlighting this. The behaviour last night was not acceptable, we know who is responsible and the persons involved will be spoken too. I understand that people can get frustrated at games, myself included and some things are directed at players etc. Whilst this happens at all gam

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

  33. 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

Having read some of the comments on there I feel as though some explanation is needed - - Hornchurch Supporters Association is a non profit part of the club who support the club and raise money for charity as well as fundraising for community projects. - we spent near on £1000 of our money to buy the camera, microphones etc to film games for our fans. (Kings Lynn Game would have been the 1st) - these games were going to be streamed for FREE to

    Thanks Luke. If as much energy had gone into encouraging our own players as was directed at opposition players and the referee in the form of abuse, then we might have won last night. Abuse thrown at opposition players only makes them more determined in my opinion - I hope I'm not the only one who can see that. I'll shut up now.

  40. 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

    Tinas new bench has been ordered for around a week now and we should be taking delivery of it in a week or so. We will then proceed with getting it fixed permanently in the memorial garden as well as smartening the garden up with some new flowers etc. Due to everyone’s kind donations we still have around £300 leftover. Rather then just decide where it goes I wanted to make sure everyone who contributed is happy with a suggestion that’s been made to me. That is that the surplus money is used on some new furniture for the newly refurbished hill. I know Tina used to like to sit out ther

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
