  1. 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!

  2. 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

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

    Season starts now.

    It hasn’t been good overall to date with injuries to key players and perhaps not having the rub if the green on occasions together with coming down to earth after the amazing Trophy win and teams raising their game because of this. it’s time to look forward now and effectively start again starting with today and a push towards a run towards a play off spot. This may seem unlikely at the moment but most in this division are capable of beating each other and a winning run would see us moving up the table with the momentum. Everyone from the hardcore to be the occasional fan need

    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

  12. 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

  17. The 2.1 score line was not a fair reflection of the game, with better luck and finishing this game should have been a thrashing. But it is great to watch us make so many chances. Considering that 7 regular starters were missing from the line up it shows that with our recent signings we building up strength in depth. Well done to Tom Wraight who has scored in both games he has played for us. Our new strategy of winning football matches is something that I am really getting behind 😀 Long may it continue.

  19. At the moment this is all a bit embarrassing. FA Trophy winners, loads of momentum going into the new season yet here we are, languishing towards the bottom of the table and knocked out of both cups by sides who, let's face it, were pretty rubbish. I really feel for the players, no-one wants to lose, they are busting a gut to turn this around but it's just not happening. We've done well off the pitch in terms of attracting sponsors etc but our squad was never big enough to cope with the rigours of a new season. Last season we could operate with a squad of 15/16 players when we'

  24. Literally just stopped crying. What an amazing game. Hornchurch just doesn't know when they're beaten. Never thought anything would top Weymouth but today has done it. 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

  27. 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

    Even I can't remember a winning run like this even going back to the crazy days of J&K,in a good place now after the sloppy start to the season which I think was expected after the trophy epics,well another big scalp who were on an almighty uneaten run, to give you some idea of where we are we had the luxury of bring on Liam,Ollie and Ellis,the game turned in an instant being a goal up Joe pulled off a crucial save and before you know we're 2 nil up,good crowd and lots of new faces Stortford had a decent number of fans down but no noise,well one happy Urchin today

  32. Are we just going to ignore the fact we persist in playing players out of position hoping we will click? Once again we've had more then enough time to get a centrehalf on duel reg to deputise for Hayles/Clarke but instead play Parcell. We've got a striker who looks like he will never score in Bricknell (not replaced Dicko) and we left our 2 most creative players on the bench bringing on Ruff with 6 mins to play. This season should have been about progressing, using that cup win to push on keep the core if the team and improve it using the cup money yet we've kept the same team struggling to fi

  39. 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 Memorial Bench

    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

Apologies if this is already known or has been mentioned somewhere, but has any other team (or teams) ever beaten six (or potentially seven) teams from higher leagues in a single run in a senior English cup competition?
