  1. We've started our training for the past few weeks. 12 miles smashed today! I'll get the socials done over this weekend.
  2. The bar will be open every Friday night from 6pm to 10pm until the end of November. Please come down and support the club.
  3. Cheers Lino.....that’s not even close
  4. Bar open tomorrow early from 12 from the West Ham game on TV
  5. Hornchurch FC are delighted to announce a trio of quality signings as we continue to strengthen our squad. First up is Ollie Muldoon, an exciting central midfielder who we sign from Conference South side Chelmsford City FC. Ollie is a Charlton Athletic youth graduate who had spells on loan at Gillingham and then at Dagenham & Redbridge where he played 19 games. Ollie joined up with Gillingham again in 2016 before moving to Maidstone United where he made 42 appearances in the National League. Ollie joined Chelmsford City last season and we are delighted to have secured the signature of such a high quality player, having spent his entire career at the level we want to be playing at. Ollie is available to go straight into the squad for the Horsham game on Saturday. Next up, we are delighted to announce the signing of Liam Nash, a highly prolific striker who rose to prominence at Maldon & Tiptree, where he scored an incredible 36 goals in 47 appearances. This caught the eye of many bigger clubs and Liam turned professional in 2017. He joined Gillingham FC where he made 15 appearances. Liam spent some time in Ireland at Cork City before returning to England. He spent time at National League sides Hemel Hempstead, Dartford and Concord Rangers where he continued his impressive goal scoring record. This season had seen Liam make a move overseas to the sunny climes of Gibraltar where he was signed for pro club FC Boca Gibraltar. He made an impressive start to pre season, scoring 10 goals in 4 games. Liam decided he wanted to return to the UK and despite interest from a number of clubs in higher leagues, we are delighted to have secured his signature and he can’t wait to get going. Unfortunately he will have to wait as we are still navigating the international clearance process with both the English and Gibraltan FA’s and at the time of this announcement we do not have international clearance for Liam to play yet. Last, but by no means least, we are delighted to announce the signing of Harry Gibbs from Aveley FC. Harry is a fine specimen of a defender playing at centre back who can also play at right back. Harry is a defender who likes to score goals and many of you will remember him taking an absolute liberty against us in the FA Trophy last season where he scored the winner to send Aveley into the last 16 at our expense. Mark Stimson has clearly forgiven Harry though and we are delighted to bring him to Hornchurch. Hornchurch Chairman Alex Sharp commented: “these are the type of signings that excite the fans, in uncertain times, Hornchurch continue to demonstrate our ambition to progress as a club. Mark Stimson is building something very special here and we are delighted to be supporting this as we see the club go from strength to strength” Please join us in welcoming Ollie, Nashie and Gibbo to the club.
  6. We cannot have takeaway's from the clubhouse either. Basically we have been told you must consume it seated in the areas from which is was served from. Cannot be taken anywhere else. Takeaways are only on offer if you are leaving the ground. Frustrating isn't the word.....
  7. Just to improve everyone's mood, following another inspection by the council, the takeaway bar is no longer takeaway! This is now table service only and must be consumed seated in the marquee area. I.e. you cannot take it into the ground. It just gets harder and harder..... We will speak to the club regarding additional arrangements but I don't believe anything additional will be in place for Saturday.
  8. The bar will be open on Friday from 6pm till 10pm. All are welcome. Local rules apply.
  9. As the FA Cup tie is behind closed doors, we shall be showng Hampton's live stream of the game in the clubhouse. All welcome to attend. Social distancing and bar rules in place.
  10. In addition, social distancing on the terracing currently does not require the wearing of masks. However social distancing requires improvement. If not, the wearing of masks could be implemented. The bar will be table service only on a first come, first serve basis. The boardroom will also continue to be open for takeaways.
  11. This morning the club and the Supporters' Association met to discuss further match day COVID protocols following an inspection by Havering Council. From this inspection, we now need to implement further measures. From our next home game against Carshalton Athletic it now be mandatory to wear masks while seated in the stands. Our seating arrangements will be re-arranged to suit the 1m + rule. Certain seats will not be in use and will be taped off. The reason for this and the difference to other clubs is due to the unique nature of our ground. As you cannot stand behind the goals, this greatly reduces the available space available for social distancing. In order to maintain our capacity, we need to use as many seats as possible. This is something we wished we did not have to do but it is beyond our control. Further to this online ticketing will now be available for all future games. Cash and Card payments on the day will also be available. The new screening process which was introduced v Wingate will remain and will be unchanged. However please try and get to the ground a minimum of 30mins before kick off. If you arrive later, we cannot guarantee you will see kick off. We hope everyone understands. Simply put, if these measures aren't in place and enforced, we could see a greatly reduced capacity imposed by the local authorities. Worse case even no fans. We are also in need for volunteers. If you would like to help, send an email to hfcsa@hornchurchfc.com Jordan.
