  1. COACH TO LEWES This is the final match of the season, and the players are staying overnight at Brighton. We want to run a Supporters Only coach, and, with the sun certain to be shining, it will be a great day out, with time to explore the ancient town of LEWES. As a thank-you for the magnificent support this season, the price is ONLY £5 per person, but we must have at least fifty to make it viable. We hope to run our 85 seater double decker coach that proved very popular last season - oldies on the lower deck and the rest upstairs It's a bit early, but we need to know who will travel - JUST £5 PER PERSON. 1 - Ray 2 - Ian 3 - Steph Fisher 4 - PeteBeatz 5 - Dinamo Urchin 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20

  5. With the season now entering its run-in, the Club Shop is holding its Change-of-Name / Easter Sale, which is exactly the same as an end-of-season sale, but since Easter is so late in the calendar this year, and our name likely to be changed from AFC Hornchurch to Hornchurch FC, we are calling it our Change-of-Name / Easter Sale. For £5, you can have one of our red and white woollen retro scarves, plus our AFC Hornchurch metal badge, and a mini-scarf. Other prices have also been reduced for the remainder of the current season - Replica shirts - now £35 for adult sizes and £30 for junior sizes. Retro-scarves - now £3 Mini-scarves - now £2 Key-rings - now £3.50 (only six left) Badges - £3 each or two for £5 Torch lights - now £1.50 Pens - now £1 Fridge magnets - now 50p Old programmes - ten for £1 Mugs - now £4 - both AFC Hornchurch and League Champions mugs (limited stock). The Club Shop located on the right hand side of the slope as you approach the clubhouse, It is open 90 minutes before the start of the match, and at half time.
  6. (With thanks to Max for sending me the link). And a question - Is it not about time that we returned to player management rather than management by yellow (and red) cards? The Leatherheqd blog starts here - I am not sure if there was a murder on the Orient Express or a suicide yesterday as Leatherhead ran out of steam when facing 10 man AFC Hornchurch. The ref made the game impossible for us to win as early as 10 minutes when he sent off a Hornchurch player. It was seemingly innocuous; the ball was running out of play and the striker lashed out at the defender a bit. He probably thought it was far too early in the game to be sent off for this, but he had picked on the wrong ref. Regular visitors to the Grove will know playing against 10 men usually signal disappointment, but when we carved out a goal - a nice move down the left, low cross, fumbled into the path of Travis - we could dare to dream we could pull off the impossible. 1-0, playing against 10 men... no need to concentrate on set pieces, it will be fine. Alas no, the defence being the sleepers in this instance to allow a completely free header to make it 1-1. Into the second half and the ref took centre stage. He started blowing his whistle for everything and booking anyone in sight. Shaun was booked for persistently trying to get the ball, their no 2 booked for a two footed - two footed! - tackle, I was booked for inappropriate tweeting and some birds were booked for persistent migrating. Now, we only have ourselves to blame here. Had we maintained our lead, or even built on it, the ref's breaking up of play would have been just the ticket. As it was, it only added to our frustration and in doing so allowed AFC Hornchuch the space to score a second and take all three points.
  7. Caliing any ex-Thurrock supporters. Come into the club shop - it's on the slope to the right as you go towards the social club - and for £5 you can have an Urchins red and white woollen scarf and an AFC Hornchurch badge, and if you ask nicely you can have a mini scarf as well. Did you support Thurrock when they were known as Purfleet? Or as Essex Sports? Or as Fondu?
  8. Mike - I will ask Norman Posner, as you suggest. I think the most likely answer is that the county cup matches have not been included, as it seems that 200 is the correct figure.
  9. Mike - You wrote - "Remi was injured but Mark brought him on as centre forward in last few minutes so he could achieve 200 games milestone." Are you sure about this? Remi was originally a Hornchurch player - he played for our Capital League side in 2008. He then went to Canvey, Great Wakering and Basildon, before joining Thurrock in 2013, and he was there, apart from a brief period at Greenwich Borough, until the end of last season. I have his Thurrock appearances as follows - 2013-14 - 25 apps and 1 goal 2014 -15 - 31+ 1 and 2 goals 2015-16 - 43 and 2 goals 2016-17 - 36+2 and 1 goal 2017-18 - 41+1 and 5 goals TOTAL for Thurrock - 176 + 9 subs and 11 goals And - just to complete the stats - 30 appearances this season for Enfield Town. The Thurrock figures are from the Mike Wilson stats books, which in turn came from the Isthmian League, and they were submitted to the league by Thurrock FC, but I do not know if they include county cup games, so would be grateful if you could confirm the totals for each season if you have them.
