  1. The supporters’ association have restarted the fortnightly online 50/50 draws, with the next draw due to take place on Saturday 13th February. As before, the draws will take place every 2 weeks. The draw will be done live with 50% of the prize money going to the winner. The remaining funds will be going towards helping the club through these difficult times, to support our live streaming and to our ground improvement fund once we are allowed to spend time at the stadium. Tickets will cost £1 a ticket or the famous match day price of 6 for £5. How it Works? Visit
  2. Also, the rationale behind the donation approach certainly wasn't to "pull a fast one". We had visited Hampton & Richmond in the FA Cup, along with Tonbridge Angels and Dulwich Hamlet in the Trophy. All 3 National South sides streamed for free with an optional donation element. As an example, Dulwich's justgiving page for their stream: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/dhfctv We never looked at these free streams as money lost, nor did we expect to take a cut of their donations, we were just extremely pleased that our supporters could get to watch their team in a behind
  3. 'Elite' sport can take place in tier 4 areas albeit behind closed doors so I guess it depends on how the FA Trophy is classified. When 'non-elite' sport was suspended during November Canvey Island still played their FA Cup tie.
  4. Latest from the Isthmian League ... “The Trident Leagues (the Isthmian, Northern Premier and Southern Football Leagues) welcome the decision to allow some fans into grounds situated in Tier 3 areas. However, in light of the decision of all 224 Clubs only last week to vote overwhelmingly in favour of suspending the current season the Leagues have decided to wait to see the implications of the Government’s review of the Tier system in England – due next Wednesday - before making any further announcements.”
  5. I guess this means the "Trident Leagues" may well re-consider their decision to delay the re-start of the season. Whether this is via another vote we'll have to wait and see. But, if 35 tier 2 Isthmian league sides decided to postpone the re-start the first time around I'm not sure what has changed for them. The sides that do benefit are the 12 or so in tier 3 who will now be able to have supporters. It quotes 15% of capacity but I'm pretty sure it's still the same numbers as before i.e. at step 3 this means 600 for tier 2 and 300 for tier 3. We also have to factor in the re-evaluati
  6. Saturday 12th December Home to Basildon Utd 2pm kick off. £5 admission for all.
  7. This is a decision by the clubs though. There are only 12 (I think) sides in Kent in the Isthmian league yet 47 Isthmian clubs didn't want to re-start so (assuming all 12 Kent clubs were in the 47), another 35 sides in tier 2 wanted to postpone the re-start.
  8. I very much suspect that a lot of those substantial number of clubs may well be complaining in the future but as the majority will be in tier 3 areas now it makes absolutely no sense for them to vote to start the season and play behind closed doors. The only caveat would be if they received some form of compensation out of the 14M the government were setting aside for steps 3 to 6. Unfortunately only a fraction of that 14M is in the form of grants. We don't know how many "substantial" is but given the non-use of the word majority I'd guess more than half the clubs voted to start the sea
  9. 05/12: Grays Athletic (Friendly): No advance tickets. Pay on the day, cash and/or credit card. £5 Admission for all. 08/12: Wingate & Finchley (FA Trophy): https://hornchurchfc.ktckts.com/event/hch2021fatr1/hornchurch-vs-wingate-finchley
  10. Saturday 5th December, 2pm kick off ... friendly at home to Grays Athletic
  11. A further update .... Tuesday 8th December: FA Trophy 1st Round. Home to Wingate & Finchley Saturday 12th December: ILP. Home to Cray Wanderers. We will play this game as scheduled. Tuesday 15th December: No game scheduled but this is the 2nd Round of the FA Trophy Saturday 19th December: ILP. Scheduled to play away at Bognor Regis Town. However, this is also the 3rd Round of the FA Trophy so we'll only play Bognor if both of us are knocked out of the FA Trophy. All the remaining fixtures, postponed during lockdown 2, have been re-scheduled and updated
  12. With most clubs offering online tickets it makes sense to have a thread that covers availability, links etc etc so we're not all hunting around separately for them. I'll also update our fixtures page with "Buy Tickets" links when we have them.

  13. https://bowersandpitseafc.ktckts.com/event/bpfcfat3q/buildbase-fa-trophy-3rd-qualifying-rd-bowers-pitsea-v-hornchurch I'll also add "Buy Tickets" links to our fixtures page. https://www.hornchurchfc.com/teams/first-team/fixtures-results/
  14. Bowers have re-arranged their fixture against Kingstonian for 27th October which is more than 2 weeks after the player tested positive (11th) so hopefully everything will be fine for the 31st.
  15. Absolutely ..... https://www.hornchurchfc.com/teams/first-team/statistics/
