Hornchurch created plenty of openings but were unable to turn their first half superiority into goals, whilst at times in the second half it seemed that their slender lead might not be enough to take them into the next round. The first chance of the match fell to Jordan Clark, after a Nathan Livings free kick was headed on by Sean Marks, but the shot was deflected for a corner. Goalkeeper Sheikh Ceesay was fortunate when he mistimed a centre from Jay Porter, and Brad Warner’s shot was turned around the post by a defender. East Grinstead only rarely threatened in the first half, their first opening coming from a short corner to Ryan Johnson that ended with the ball eluding everyone as it came across. Hornchurch came back strongly, with Marks finding Warner, but his shot was comfortably saved by Ceesay. George Purcell fired over from thirty yards with a shot on the turn, and back at the other end Callum Chafer saved a poorly struck shot by Orlando Smith. Purcell went close again when he moved on to Jay Porter’s cross, and Ceesay did well to hold a hard drive by Lewwis Spence. Hornchurch almost took the lead on the half hour when Porter and Marks linked up to give Purcell a shooting chance, the ball beating Ceesay only to be cleared off the line. Four minutes from the interval Ceesay saved from Marks, who had moved on to a Nathan Livings free kick. One minute into the second half, a long throw from Alex Bentley found its way to George Purcell, who turned and volleyed the ball home. Five minutes later East Grinstead were back on level terms, when George Landais moved in from the left and neatly curled his shot around Chafer and into the net. Hornchurch regained the lead when another long Bentley throw was played out to Purcell on the elft. He cut inside and pulled the ball back across goal, for Sean Marks to finish off from close range. East Grinstead had difficulty in defending the long throws from Bentley, and they almost conceded another goal when his throw reached Marks, whose shot was tipped over by Ceesay. A Tobi Coker shot landed on the roof of the net, and a Spence close range shot was cleared off the line. East Grinstead almost drew level when a Porter clearance hit Purcell and rebounded to Jack Conway, but an alert Chafer came quickly out to save. Ryan Johnson was then shown a red card for a late challenge on Sean Marks, the referee conferring with his linesman before making his decision. Nani Boakye-Yiadom almost scored with his first touch of the ball, and Hornchurch had little difficulty in playing out the remaining few minutes, as the rain continued to fall steadily.

    Weymouth away - FA Cup

    So what are the best goals? My own choice is Simon Parker at Weymouth. Chris Maynard at Arlesey. George Purcell at Dulwich. And not to forget Jamie Soujthon at St Alban's. And of course Sean Marks at Enfield this season.

    My mistake - the actual attendance was 120.
  12. Tuesday 18-September-2018 - LEAGUE CUP BASILDON UNITED 0 HORNCHURCH 1 BU - Wheatley, Mead, Worrell, Skeels, Whitby (Spooner 71), Turpin, Asamoah (Moses 45), Quadri, Bowers, Kendall (Adlington-Pile 76), Placid Subs - Phillips, Spooner, Burgess HFC - Chafer, Collis (Hursit 81), Bentley, Smith, Cooper, Warner, Livings, Hogan, Fairweather-Johnson, Junior (Marks 78) Coker (Purcell 90+2) Subs - Marks, Purcell, Spence, Hursit, Clark Scorer - Warner 25 Attendance 120 Bookings - Kendall 62 (BU) - Whitby 65 (BU) BASILDON UNITED 0 HORNCHURCH 1 Hornchurch almost took a first minute lead, when Tobi Coker broke through, his shot being saved by Connor Wheatley. With a strong cross wind causing problems to both teams, Hornchurch had further chances, Theo Fairweather-Johnson pulling a shot wide of the post, and Coker missing a good opportunity, firing over the bar when well positioned. On 24 minutes Hornchurch took the lead when Bradley Warner sent in a free kick that ended up in the far corner of the net. Hornchurch won two corners in quick succession, on the half hour. Warner went close from the first corner, and the second found Ruben Junior, whose shot came back off a defender. Five minutes before the interval, Callum Chafer was called into action, making a comfortable save. Two minutes into the second half, Nathan Cooper went close with a header, and when Junior broke through, his shot took a deflection for a corner. Warner took the corner, and the ball fell to Connor Hogan, but his shot went narrowly wide. On 53 minutes Hogan played the ball to Nathan Livings, but his shot was just wide of the goal. Hornchurch enjoyed the better of the territorial play and Leon Smith went close with a header from a Warner corner on 64 minutes, and two minutes later a Warner free kick beat the defence but landed on the roof of the net. On 78 minutes a Dave Collis free kick found Nathan Copper, whose header hit the post and the ball was cleared. Sean Marks came on for Ruben Junior, and with two minutes to play he almost got onto the scoresheet when he lobbed the ball over Wheatley but a defender got back in time to clear. As the match entered stoppage time Jamie Hursit took a return pass from Makes, but his shot drifted wide of the goal. Less than a minute later Marks got on to the end of a Hogan cross but was just wide of the target.

    Before the match there were complaints about the pitch, which was far too soft, and the masses of black pellets made it a lot worse as the match wore on. I doubt very much that a goalkeeper is very happy in getting a face full of rubber pellets each time he goes down for a ball. Dorking are used to playing on that surface - Hornchurch are not, and that may well in part explain what went wrong in the second half.

Dorking are another team who now have a 3G surface, and it took some time to get used to the clouds of black rubber that came up whenever the ball bounced, or when a player kicked the ball. Play was held up for some time after only two minutes when Jason Prior needed attention, and when it resumed Tobi Coker signalled what was to come with a hard shot that Slavomir Huk saved well. Dorking quickly moved upfield and a Niall McManus shot went high over the bar, at the Box Hill end of the ground. Hornchurch had the better of the play, and George Purcell went close when he turned inside a defender, with Huk making a fine save from Purcell’s hard shot. Hornchurch opened the scoring on the quarter-hour mark when a good cross in by George Purcell was finsiehd off at the far post by Lewwis Spence. And it was 2-0 on 23 minutes when Tobi Coker reacted quickest to convert a rebound, when an initial shot rebounded off Dorking keeper Huk. Callum Chafer saved well from Jerome Beckles but play was largely confined to the other end, and Hornchurch went further ahead when Nathan Cooper met a Purcell corner to power his header hard into the net. It was almost four when a Jamie Hursit free kick found Leon Smith at the far post, but Huk got a hand to the ball and it was booted away to safety. On the stroke of half time Purcell moved in from the left, rounded a defender, and his shot beat Huk only to come back off the post. Purcell fired wide after rounding Huk three minutes into the second half and Dorking made him pay less than a minute later as Kieran Lavery pulled the first goal back on 49 minutes, to inspire a remarkable comeback. On 56 minutes Sami El-Abd was fortunate to escape with only a yellow card after a late challenge on Tobi Coker, the referee speaking at length to his linesman before making his decision, with many expecting a straight red, but arguably correct as the incident was more out of frustration than intent. It was a one-goal game midway through the half when Jason Prior netted Dorking’s second and the home side, after hitting the crossbar on 73 minutes, and play switched to the other end where Spence went close. Dorkign were back on terms with nine minutes remaining as Niall McManus beat Callum Chafer. Dorking swarmed all around the Hornchurch goal for the remaining ten minutes, with Chafer making three excellent saves to keep the ball out, and another header going wide of the post, and Hornchurch had to settle for just one point, when they should really have been home and dry by half time. But if a 3G pitch is the way forward, do we really have to put up with clouds of black pellets every few seconds?
