What a phenomenal performance by the whole Hornchurch FC organisation. 'Congratulations' does not even begin to do justice to your accomplishments. You have made us all so very proud!
For the past few years I have been following the team from afar as my personal circumstances prevented me from attending matches. No It wasn't prison!! But now things are different and I will be able to get down to the Bridge when the new season starts.
Well done everyone. You have created a legend.

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?
Anyone know? Is this a first? (I would have thought so)
What a fantastic achievement
Still coming to terms with reaching Wembley

Thank you Phil - I think even the most die-hard Hornchurch fans were probably fearing the worst when that semi-final draw was made but there's been a massive spirit through the club during this awful pandemic and that's carried us through I think.
Hope you guys get promotion you deserve to be in a higher league.

WOW what has just happened in the last 48 Hours. 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 such a time as this with the covid lockdown they have lifted our spirits and beliefs in the love of football to a level never thought of.
It was such an amazing game to watch and see the lads fight every second of the match and that is what has underlined this squad the belief and fight to take this team as far as they have. I'm so proud of the lads and the management and it is such a great honour to be able to be around and to work with and we now have a dream day out to look forward to.
Lets hope all the regular supporters will be able to make it to the final and have their day out that this team has given us so we can celebrate this clubs historical appearance together.
UP THE URCHINS

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!!
cup of tea got a reaction from Burdy in Notts County 3 - 3 Hornchurch (HFC win 5-4 pens)
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
cup of tea reacted to Riverside Urchin in Notts County 3 - 3 Hornchurch (HFC win 5-4 pens)
This is what can happen if you have a vision and the resilience and determination to achieve it. Well done, but really words are not enough for what everyone at the club achieved. This for me tops the 1st/2nd round of FA cup, Weymouth and the slog in the ESL. My first match was Marlow at home - anyone out there know what year that was?? I can then pin down how many years I’ve supported this great club.

I don't think it'll ever sink in that the 'Pub Team from Essex' have gotten to Wembley. As opposed to making up the numbers, let's go and win the thing.
I'm bursting with pride and want to thank all involved in this magical journey. The effort from everyone and the hard work put in behind the scenes has been incredible.
cup of tea reacted to Hasbeen in Notts County 3 - 3 Hornchurch (HFC win 5-4 pens)
I have to say a massive well done to everyone involved with the club, players, management ,staff, supporters etc. My dad was secretary of HFC for many years and I know he would have had a tear in his eye about yesterdays result.

A massive well done you urchins past present, far and wide.
we have followed where we can and today was unbelievably emotional.

I just hope I’m lucky enough to get that ticket to Wembley to just be part of the joy of being there.

I could not believe the result I had my eyes closed for the penalties. My only regret is that Jean and myself were on a lockdown since March 2020 due to health reasons and could not attend any of the matches this season. We hope to be back soon Well done to all concerned
