  1. Following the name change of AFC Hornchurch to Hornchurch FC we will be changing our website and all social media accounts as follows: Website: HornchurchFC.com We are still updating various parts of the website so bear with us, but all latest news etc will be published here. Social Media Twitter: @HornchurchFC Facebook: HornchurchFCofficial Instagram: HornchurchFCofficial Flickr: HornchurchFCofficial Our YouTube channel is unchanged and remains AFCHTV. The previous website, afchornchurch.com, will remain available for a period of time until all archived information has been transferred. Once complete, any access to afchornchurch.com will automatically re-direct to the new website. We won’t be updating afchornchurch.com after 31st May.
  2. OK, garbage was harsh and unfair (and disrespectful) on the players, but nevertheless in my view I don't think any of the additions, barring Joe, improved the squad. Whether we would have stayed up with or without those players or with or without Stimson running things we'll never know. And at the end of the season when you see the likes of Bentley, Lee, Marks and Purcell all depart and compare them with those that have been retained then there really is no comparison. Alex was a phenomenal player and leader for us. Your comments about Alex say a whole lot about how much you really don't know about this club !
  3. How can you possibly let someone like Alex leave yet retain the garbage that arrived from Waltham Abbey?
  4. League constitutions will be announced on Sunday 19th May. Rumour has it that we may gain Hendon and lose Bishop's Stortford because of the excess of teams in the Southern Premier South. Two of the relegated National South teams will end up there (Truro and Weston-super-Mare).
  5. Updated: The League Directory page with what I think will be the 22 teams competing in the Bostik Prem next season. I've assumed the 5 departees will just be replaced by the 5 additions but the overall structure still has to be agreed by the FA. Clicking on a team crest takes you to their profile page. Removed the 2018/19 results from the Fixtures page and added them to the Season Archive. Click on the 2018/19 link to see the results, table, player stats, attendances and progress graph.
  6. Pictures from last night's staff vs supporters match and presentation evening are now online. Nowhere near Pete Trinder's high standards so I apologise in advance for that, and also for any pictures that show the odd unflattering angle or two. https://www.flickr.com/photos/147775576@N05/albums
  7. Cheers Pete & Jean - much appreciated. Thanks Mike - email address changed. We'll have a full set of hornchurchfc.com emails set up in the next few days or so. Car Parking is meant to be indented as it's part of the Car section though I've separated each bit to make it (hopefully) more distinct. Thanks, Andy
  8. All, The new website, https://www.hornchurchfc.com/ , is now online. It's far from complete but it will be updated alongside the current afchornchurch.com with any latest news etc. So for current info it's fine to use, but for archived info we'll be bringing this across over the coming days and weeks. The idea is to run them in parallel through May and then stop updating afchornchurch.com from 1st June. From that date we'll display a splash screen advising folk to head to the new website. afchornchurch.com will still be around though for at least another year as the domain doesn't expire until May 2020. ---- The look and feel of the new site is quite different. It's also a lot easier to maintain than afchornchurch.com which is a good thing. The last/next match sections on the home page for instance are now automatically updated as games finish rather than being manually updated. There's also more info on the home page in the sidebar on the right - search bar, social media links, next match countdown, fixture calendar plus venue hire and shop links (though the shop is work in progress). Most of the other pages are just copies from afchornchurch.com but will either be shown with or without the sidebar. The only different screen is the fixture page. The fixtures page has the friendlies on there (plus last season's results on a separate tab). Clicking on a fixture (click the date) takes you to the match page which is much better formatted than afchornchurch.com. Clicking a team name takes you to their own profile page with map, address, logo, previous results against us, link to their website + Twitter info. e.g. Chelmsford City I don't like the fixtures page - hence I'm working on another version - see the '2019/20 Testing' tab but this will be more onerous to maintain. ---- Please try it out and let me know of any issues. I guarantee there will be problems on some media whether that's small phones, large phones, ipads, tablets, laptops or desktops but let me know on here what they are. Don't DM me as I want all problems in one place. I'm aware the player slider on the home page at the bottom doesn't work yet. Also, if there's additional info you think worth being on the new site then let me know that too. Finally, as I bring more pages across I'll update this thread. Thanks, Andy
  9. Since both Met Police and Harrow play in the Southern South and both are east of Hayes then I'd guess Hayes look a very good bet for the Southern South.
  10. Heybridge Swifts beat Maldon & Tiptree yesterday so occupied the last promotion place (5th out of 7 in terms of PPG for all play-off winners). Unfortunately, Yate beat Cinderford Town 3-1 today so Yate take the promotion spot and Heybridge miss out (finishing 6th out of 7). Tonbridge beat Merstham 2-0 today in the Bostik prem final and will play Met Police in the super play-off final. Met Police beat Poole Town 1-0 today. So, Coming into the Bostik Prem (5): East Thurrock Utd, Bowers & Pitsea, Cray Wanderers, Horsham and Cheshunt Leaving the Bostik Prem (4 or 5): Dorking, Whitehawk, Burgess Hill Town and Harlow Town. Plus possibly Tonbridge. If Tonbridge win their super play-off then they'll be promoted so 5 will join the Prem and 5 will depart. But if Tonbridge lose then 5 will join and 4 will depart so it is likely that Bishop's Stortford will be transferred into the Southern Prem Central. Or possibly, Bognor will be transferred into the Southern Premier South.
  11. Cheshunt surprisingly won at Bracknell Town yesteday in the Bostik South Central play-off final so, according to the Isthmian site, will be in the Prem next season. Today is Maldon vs Heybridge. If Maldon win they will be promoted to the Prem. If Heybridge win, they will be looking at Monday's Southern One South play-off final, Yate vs Cinderford Town. A Yate win will mean Heybridge don't go up as the Swifts will be the 6th best play-off winner in terms of points per game (Yate's PPG is better than Heybridge's). But, if Cinderford Town win then Heybridge will go up as Cinderford have a worse PPG than Heybridge, so Heybridge will be the 5th best play-off winner.
  12. Horsham beat Sam Mott's Ashford Utd tonight AET in the Bostik South East play-off final. Given the current promotion rules at that level only 5 of the 7 play-off winners will be promoted - based on points per game - but Horsham's PPG is good so they are likely to be in the Bostik Premier next season. So, coming into the Bostik Premier next season are: East Thurrock Utd - relegated from National South Bowers & Pitsea - champions of Bostik North Cray Wanderers - champions of Bostik South East Horsham - play-off winners in Bostik South East Maldon & Tiptree will play Heybridge Swifts in the Bostik North Final. If Maldon win they will likely go up to the Prem as they have a good PPG. If Heybridge win they are likely to miss out on promotion because of their poor PPG. --- We will be losing the following: Dorking Wanderers - champions Whitehawk - relegated Burgess Hill Town - relegated Harlow Town - relegated The Premier play-off final is between Tonbridge Angels and Merstham. Whoever wins this will play the winners of Met Police and Poole Town in the "super play-offs", with the winners promoted to the National South.
  13. Also worth noting that the team that wins the Bostik Premier play-offs this season is still not guaranteed to be promoted. This season is an unusual one in that at the step above (National North and South) 6 teams will be relegated - 3 from each division. At our level however there are 4 divisions (Northern Prem, Bostik Prem, Southern Prem Central and Southern Prem South). Since there are only 6 promotion spots available the 4 league winners will take 4 of them and be promoted (that includes Dorking). For the other 2 promotion spots a "super play-off" will take place which will be 2 matches between the 4 play-off winners. The winners of those games will go up. Who plays who depends on the best geographical split - but if the seasons were to end now then the super play-offs would be: Warrington vs Stourbridge; Taunton vs Haringey Borough Next season there'll ne none of this. 4 teams will be relegated from the National North and South (2 from each division) and 8 will be promoted from our level. They are increasing the number of sides in National North/South from 22 to 24.
  14. The supporters' player of the season forms will be available at tomorrow's match with Whitehawk so pick one up when you arrive. They'll also be at the home game against Harlow on Bank Holiday Monday as well. You'll be asked to pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd. If you can't vote in person then you can send an email to afchsa@gmail.com with your votes. Or, send Jordan or myself a private message on here. Thanks, Andy
  15. Next season the club will be returning to its original name of Hornchurch FC. In celebration, the supporters association will be giving away a free scarf as part of their annual membership and are giving you the opportunity to select the scarf design. The 4 options are below: All 4 designs feature Hornchurch FC on the front but there are 2 different designs on the reverse and 2 different colour options. The poll will close at midnight on Sunday 31st March. Vote here: https://www.afchornchurch.com/2019/03/26/poll-select-next-seasons-hfcsa-scarf/
