  1. When they took the lead I thought it was gonna be one of those games but credit to the lads they pushed on through in tricky conditions. Second half was poor with no quality from either side but plenty of effort. I felt we lacked that killer pass at times today however Green showed looks like he could have this in his locker, once Spence is fit again I think he will link up very well with him. Not the best of games but we are in the hat for the next round which is the most important thing. Well done all
  2. Unbeaten in their league and scoring goals for fun. They will be a threat but I've got faith we will brush them aside. (Injuries permitting)
  3. Really pleased to come away with the 3 points, smallsy done his homework and packed the midfield out leaving us really struggling to pick a pass in midfield. We missed Spence's energy, ball winning and calmness on the ball however the early changes made a difference and full marks to Stimson for recognising them. Both Hayles and Cooper put in big shifts against that big unit who enjoyed putting himself about but moaned all day when it was dished out back to him. This was a game in past we may well have lost (big crowd, struggling team with ex players who have a point to prove etc) but we overcame this..so maybe just maybe this could well be our season. Long way to go I know but the signs are promising. Well played everyone
  4. A real battling performance in terrible conditions. Hard to single out one stand out performance as everyone put in a great shift. The defence as a unit were superb who managed to shut out Folkestone for the first time this season (league). Well played lads!
  5. What a fantastic night that was, less to say about that kit the better tho. Still got mine somewhere...
  6. I don't suppose there's any videos of the goals?
  7. Great performance with some stunning goals to boot. On paper this could have been a real tricky game but once we settled, the movement of our forwards and calmness at the back led by Ricky was too much for the walnuts. George was absolutely on fire, all it needed was a goal by him to cap off a fine display. MacLeod up front was a great player in his day and expected more from him, infact I still think Ricky still has him in his pocket! Well played lads...roll on Monday for the draw
  8. Agree, it was a bad day at the office. Our midfield seemed abit sluggish losing the second ball more often then not with no real outlet when we did have the ball which is something unusual as we've been really solid in this area of late with runners and options all over the pitch. Can only put it down to the conditions/fatigue, special mention to their keeper who played a blinder. Anyway let's move on from this blip and make amends Saturday.
  9. The length of the grass and more excuses from kingstonian can be seen here
  10. Very impressive performance and great goals too. Special mention to Dickson whose workrate and hold up play was class not to mention his clever runs between defenders causing problems all afternoon.
  11. I read of a non League club offering discounted entry for people suffering with mental illness. This would obviously be hard to administer but little things like having a chat with someone at a match may really help people who otherwise might not leave their house or speak to people weeks on end. Football is great middle ground for people of all walks of life to see they have something in common.
  12. Thats a bold statement. It's a strong team I'll give you that but even hx have had stronger in the past let alone other clubs in the last few years.
  13. Was an entertaining game. Hx had the better chances and looked alot fitter them Dagenham in the second half, in my eyes Hx were well worth the win.
  14. Interesting piece here https://www.romfordrecorder.co.uk/sport/football/non-league/hornchurch-evaluating-trialists-1-6174091
  15. Now 8/1 someone's had a cheeky tenner by the looks of it
  16. First half was decent, playing it along the back with all the the new look defence all looking sound with the ball at their feet only thing lacking is a 16stone Akenfenwa to hold up the ball and win a few headers. Second half was a nothing half but with all those changes I didn't expect anything more. Dutton Iooked confident on the ball and I'll look forward to seeing more of him this season.
  17. Blast from the past. Great signing...one of the hx greats.
  18. So sorry to hear this. Awful news. RIP Tina
  19. 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.
  20. Great move for him. Wish him all the best. Hx legend
