for a team to be high up the league trying to get promotion via winning the league or playoffs that is bad

i would  think its about right  billericay  along with  just about every non league  club in south east essex have fallen over  past couple  of seasons the interest  seems no longer to be there  maybe  the older  fans are starting to  fall by the way ,  and younger  fans are  no longer  coming in to  take there place  in the grounds  , non league starting to be seen as a old boys  thing  collecting  programmes badges  and standing in poor empty stadiums  almost  like train spotters  in the eye  of young fans

totally agree shrimper, there are very few U18 going to non leagues stadiums, being one of these few and hearing what people my age say about non league football shocks me, many find it boring and a waste of time.

What are they doing to Bridge Avenue?

Due to problems on A13 I didn't get to game last night until Kick Off.

Couldn't park anywhere near the ground so went home to the arms of me darling.

 

Why can't the excess Car Park be opened?

 

Quite happy to donate the £25 I would have spent to the club.

Anyone know easiest way to do this?

Hornchurch O - They are putting in width restrictions and chicanes in Bridge Avenue, hence the farcical weaving in and out as you approach the ground. It is a total mess at the moment (and also I would suggest that the Council are simply spending money for the sake of it - possibly using our own lease money in the process).

 

If you can't get into the car park, carry on past the ground and take the next right - there is plenty of street parking in the roads once you get past the entrance.

 

The overflow car park can only be used if it is not too muddy.

 

I did not think the car park was full last night.

 

If you want to donate money to the club you can always come into the shop and I can give you a receipt for the donation - in fact you could use the donation to sponsor Grant Gordon of the management team.

Not a waste of money,due to the scumbag parents who decide to fly up and down bridge avenue in their 4 x 4s just to get little Tarquin to school on time because their whore of a mother didn't get out the house on time because she was chatting to her lover on Facebook!!

My opinion on low gates is that clubs fail to have an identity with potential supporters. I would imagine that if anyone from parts of the borough other than Hornchurch who was looking for a local club to connect with would consider Havering Urchins, but not necessarily AFC Hornchurch.

You can park outside my house in oak avenue Michael then I can give you a lift to the ground.

Been driving thro the chicane today and what I find is converging drivers each accelerate to get to the "gate" before the other.

Absolute chaos as is the traffic light sequence at bell corner but what do we know.

Leave it to the prats of experts

Non league football is dying,been saying it for years and no one seems to want to do anything about it

I agree, and believe its due to the fact that the non league game is dominated by tribalism and luddites who refuse to accept change.

You do seem to be fighting a losing battle on the Romford Forum Alan
