Hornchurch FC are delighted to announce a trio of quality signings as we continue to strengthen our squad.

First up is Ollie Muldoon, an exciting central midfielder who we sign from Conference South side Chelmsford City FC. Ollie is a Charlton Athletic youth graduate who had spells on loan at Gillingham and then at Dagenham & Redbridge where he played 19 games. Ollie joined up with Gillingham again in 2016 before moving to Maidstone United where he made 42 appearances in the National League. Ollie joined Chelmsford City last season and we are delighted to have secured the signature of such a high quality player, having spent his entire career at the level we want to be playing at. Ollie is available to go straight into the squad for the Horsham game on Saturday.

Next up, we are delighted to announce the signing of Liam Nash, a highly prolific striker who rose to prominence at Maldon & Tiptree, where he scored an incredible 36 goals in 47 appearances. This caught the eye of many bigger clubs and Liam turned professional in 2017. He joined Gillingham FC where he made 15 appearances. Liam spent some time in Ireland at Cork City before returning to England. He spent time at National League sides Hemel Hempstead, Dartford and Concord Rangers where he continued his impressive goal scoring record. This season had seen Liam make a move overseas to the sunny climes of Gibraltar where he was signed for pro club FC Boca Gibraltar. He made an impressive start to pre season, scoring 10 goals in 4 games. Liam decided he wanted to return to the UK and despite interest from a number of clubs in higher leagues, we are delighted to have secured his signature and he can’t wait to get going. Unfortunately he will have to wait as we are still navigating the international clearance process with both the English and Gibraltan FA’s and at the time of this announcement we do not have international clearance for Liam to play yet.

Last, but by no means least, we are delighted to announce the signing of Harry Gibbs from Aveley FC. Harry is a fine specimen of a defender playing at centre back who can also play at right back. Harry is a defender who likes to score goals and many of you will remember him taking an absolute liberty against us in the FA Trophy last season where he scored the winner to send Aveley into the last 16 at our expense.
Mark Stimson has clearly forgiven Harry though and we are delighted to bring him to Hornchurch.

Hornchurch Chairman Alex Sharp commented: “these are the type of signings that excite the fans, in uncertain times, Hornchurch continue to demonstrate our ambition to progress as a club. Mark Stimson is building something very special here and we are delighted to be supporting this as we see the club go from strength to strength”

Please join us in welcoming Ollie, Nashie and Gibbo to the club.

Blimey, if my maths is correct, we now have a 21 man squad as a minimum;


Parcell, Ramsey, Hayles, Cooper, Onyemah, Sutton, Gibbs - 7 defenders.

Brown, Christou, Clark, Spence, Osborn, Muldoon - 6 midfield.

Dickson, Higgins, Stimson, Winn, Purcell, Ruff, Nash - 7 forwards. 

This is ignoring Hassan, Cunningham and Doe (is he still here?).

Will be able to carry such a squad both numerically and financially?  

I guess Matt Johnson will not be the last to leave Bridge Avenue.
