    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

    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

  4. 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 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

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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!

  11. 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

  12. 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.

    Recent behaviour

    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

  17. 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

  19. Morning to you and thanks for commenting on our post. Unfortunately I am not a member on your linnets forum but am guessing you may be? 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.

  21. Dear All, Apologies for the confusion yesterday with this but I can now confirm this is going ahead!! This year unfortunately the annual cricket game cannot go ahead due to certain restrictions put on the cricket club by the ECB so instead we have something different planned..... Sunday 30th August at the football club the bar will be open and there will be a bbq on the go too! We will also have rounders set up on the pitch as well as access to a quick cricket set. This is a family event so bring your friends, bring your children, bring you family and let’s raise some funds

It's from about 11 years ago (!) and is a game that has become legendary - Weymouth v AFC Hornchurch in the 4th Qualifying Round of the FA Cup from October 2008. https://youtu.be/kvlLt27q9Fs Enjoy. As usual, any problems let me know. PS Next week would have been the play-off final. Whether we would have been involved in it or not we'll never know, but I'll try and dig something ou

As before, the draws will take place every 2 weeks. The draw will be done live with 50% of the prize money going to the winner. The remaining funds will be going towards helping the club through these difficult times, to support our live streaming and to our ground improvement fund once we are allowed to spend time at the stadium. Tickets will cost £1 a ticket or the famous match day price of 6 for £5. How it Works? V

    A great team effort, the sending off was a mixture of rash tackle and the Tonbridge player's to a man surrounding the ref, something we don't do, but do you have to start.we lifted our game and remy was positive when he came on. Well done to Mark, staff and players, good night out shame the rest of you couldn't be there

  27. I thought Tuesdays performance was one of the best of the season. Solid at the back , energetic and creative in midfield and clinical up top. Ruff and Nash seem to have clicked straight away , Jordan Clark just gets better every game no matter what position. I thought muldoon looked solid in central midfield, it’s just a shame with all the disruption that we have assembled a great squad that will challenge for the title but may well not get the opportunity to do so.

    Match Day Ticket Info

    With most clubs offering online tickets it makes sense to have a thread that covers availability, links etc etc so we're not all hunting around separately for them. I'll also update our fixtures page with "Buy Tickets" links when we have them.

    Missing match days

    Sorry we have not attended any home matches this season but Jean is slowly getting over her stroke and we have my mother living with us. At 97 she is very active but she has not been out since April and we have to be careful not to bring home any infections. So for a while we are self isolating as a precaution. Miss the club and supporters hope to see you all in the near future. Pete and Jean

  34. Hi all, Following on from last week, here's another game for you to enjoy over the weekend. And it's a thriller - AFC Hornchurch v Waltham Abbey from January 2018 A disclaimer:- It's a football match with a real football crowd and emotions are likely to run high. I haven't gone through it forensically so there is likely to be some 'adult' language (maybe even from me), so be aware. Any comments or requests please let me know Enjoy. https://youtu.be/h7DyZFN2gSs

  36. Even the great Enfield sides of the 70s and 80s only attracted gates of 500 - 600 or so for most league fixtures often less. So the fact that our average attendance is around the 360 is a reflection of our location. Many other football options exist for Enfield based football supporters. What a difference it would make if we got the type of crowds being enjoyed by Worthing. This has arguably been one if not most successful seasons we have had , consistently in the top 7 or 8 , one of our better FA cup runs and our best ever FA Trophy run. So it’s disappointing we haven’t impr

    'Don't see him fighting off the job offers!' Disappointing, though entirely predictable, that you should be taking cheap shots so soon at a man who has done so much, and is so well-respected, at your Club. That you should choose to do this does, of course, say far more about you than it ever could about him.

    Graham Bint RIP

    You probably didn't notice, but the brief obituary which you purloined from another forum and reproduced in your original post, was written by one agamemnon3. On the other forum's old operating system, it was possible to ascertain how many viewings each individual post had received. At Graham's funeral a few weeks later, therefore, I was able to show Margaret, his widow, that more than nine hundred people had read what I had written about him. She was very touched. A good and decent man, sorely missed.

  44. Dear All, I can confirm that the Hornchurch clubhouse and bar will be open from 1145-1400 on Saturday before we travel to Bowers and Pitsea (A) The clubhouse and bar will also be open after the game from around 17:20ish once we return from Bowers. We will be showing the Liverpool v West Ham game which kicks off at 17:30. Usual COVID rules apply with track and trace on entry, table service only and all the other rules which you should all know by now. See you all Saturday! Luke
