20/9/14 WHITSTABLE TOWN 2 HORSHAM 1

Troy Williams scored his second goal in as many games but it wasn't enough to prevent Horsham from slipping to their fifth successive away defeat this afternoon as Whitstable netted in each half to secure their first-ever league success over the Hornets whose disappointment was compounded by the late dismissal of Gary Charman for dissent. Full report...

19/9/14 WHITSTABLE TOWN v HORSHAM

Jamie Cade remains an absentee but Lewis Hamilton and Billy-Joe King are set to return to the squad for tomorrow's trip to Whitstable Town after missing the midweek victory over Hythe. Work commitments continue to sideline last season's top scorer, who should be back for Tuesday's match at Whyteleafe, but confidence should be high after Tuesday's four goal display. Despite having been beaten 4-0 by Hythe in last week's FA Cup tie, the Oystermen have lost just once in the league but five draws from nine matches mean they sit in tenth place. The Hornets, who climbed out of the bottom three after Tuesday's result, have yet to pick up a point on their travels this season but are unbeaten in the four league meetings between the sides. Last season's corresponding fixture produced a 1-1 draw, with Ashley Baverstock's late goal cancelling out Billy Dunn's opener.

18/9/14 FIXTURE UPDATE

Our Ryman League fixture against Hastings United, scheduled to take place on Saturday 27th September, has been postponed due to the Arrows' continued involvement in the FA Cup. We will now host Guernsey on this date, having agreed with the Channel Islanders to bring forward this fixture from its original date of Tuesday 30th September. The match will kick-off at 3pm.

17/9/14 GARY'S DELIGHT IN VICTORY

Gary Charman believes his side took the positives out of Saturday's defeat and used them to their advantage in last night's meeting with Hythe Town, a match the manager termed 'our biggest of the season'. You can see his interview, courtesy of Amy Thompson, here

17/9/14 TROY WILLIAMS

New signing Troy Williams made an impressive debut for his new club in last night’s 4-1 win over Hythe Town. Introduced as a replacement for Jamie Ampleford after half an hour, the midfielder was involved in many of Horsham’s brighter moments and capped a decent display with a thirty yard chip for our fourth goal. Troy is twenty years old and began his career at Tooting & Mitcham, returning to the Imperial Fields after a brief spell with Merstham at the start of last season. He joined Grays ahead of the current campaign but, despite playing regularly for the Essex club’s U21 squad, failed to break into the senior side and was happy to sign for Horsham in the hope of securing regular first team football. On the basis of last night’s display, we at Hornets Review believe he will have little trouble in realising that aim! Welcome, Troy.

16/9/14 HORSHAM v HYTHE TOWN

Our attention returns to league matters tonight when Horsham go in search of only their second maximum points haul of the campaign and a first ever against opponents Hythe Town. Although enjoying a 4-0 FA Cup success over Whitstable Town on Saturday our visitors have fared little better than ourselves in the league, having beaten only East Grinstead and Carshalton, and currently occupy 20th place just two points above the Hornets. Hythe have won three of the four league meetings to date, with our best result coming in last season's 1-1 draw at Reachfields. In March, goals from Lee Pleau and Shaun Welford secured Hythe a 2-0 win at Goring's Mead. Kick-off is 7.30pm, admission £9 adults, £5 concessions and £1 for U18s.

7/9/14 HERNE BAY REPORT

Matt Dale's excellent report on yesterday's cruel defeat at Herne Bay is now on-line. Full report...

6/9/14 HERNE BAY 2 HORSHAM 1

Horsham suffered a harsh defeat at the hands of Herne Bay this afternoon, going down 2-1 and ending the match with only ten men. Despite dominating much of the play, the Hornets had only Tony Nwachukwu's penalty to show for their efforts and they were pegged back on the stroke of half-time when Stuart King levelled from the spot in an incident that saw Glen Woodburn dismissed. The visitors again enjoyed plenty of second half possession but were to leave pointless when 85th minute substitute Kane Butler netted at the death. John Lines' match photos can be viewed here and a full report will follow on Sunday.

5/9/14 DELAYED KICK-OFF FOR Ks CUP TIE

Kick-off for next Saturday's FA Cup 1st Qualifying round tie with Kingstonian has been put back to 3.30pm due to the Tour of Britain cycle race that will be passing through Horsham town centre earlier in the day. Roads are expected to be closed until 1pm.

5/9/14 HERNE BAY v HORSHAM: MATCH PREVIEW

It’s Non-League Day this Saturday and to mark the occasion our hosts, Herne Bay, are offering a ‘BOGOF’ deal to all supporters attending our match at Winch’s Field. The Kent Club are one of hundreds across the country supporting this now annual event, that aims to provide a platform on which clubs can promote grassroots football, and is hoping to entice new fans with the offer of a free ticket for every full adult ticket purchased. You can reserve your tickets by emailing Steve Barton before 8pm on Friday at hbfcprogrammeeditor@outlook.com and pick them up at the turnstiles on Saturday. In equally charitable mood, we hope, will be the Herne Bay players who have gone four league games without a victory and currently sit in thirteenth spot, nine places and three points above Horsham. The Hornets held the upper hand in last season's meetings, drawing 2-2 away and winning 1-0 at Goring's Mead.

4/9/14 NAPPER MAKES SURPRISE RETURN

Byron Napper is set to take his place in Saturday's squad to face Herne Bay after making a surprise return to the club. Napper, who left Horsham for Lewes during the summer, agreed to rejoin the club after meeting with Gary Charman this evening. Welcome back, Byron!

4/9/14 IN SEARCH OF THE ROMANCE OF THE CUP

Among last weekend's Goring's Mead crowd was Mitch Mansfield, a Broadcast Journalist student at Birmingham School of Media who chose our FA Cup tie with Corinthian-Casuals to look at the impact of the competition on lower league clubs.

2/9/14 HORSHAM 0 CARSHALTON ATHLETIC 0

Horsham extended their unbeaten run to four games but remain in the bottom three after tonight's goalless draw with Carshalton Athletic. Carshalton had the better of what few clear goalscoring chances their were in a game in which the defences came out on top. Full report...

1/9/14 HORSHAM v CARSHALTON ATHLETIC: MATCH PREVIEW

Tony Nwachukwu returns to the Horsham squad for Tuesday's visit of Carshalton Athletic as our attention turns back to the small matter of winning crucial league points (ko 7.30pm). Carshalton have struggled to hit top form after last season's relegation, winning, drawing and losing an equal share of their six matches to date. On Saturday they were given a scare at Mole Valley SCR, who took an early lead only for the Robins to hit five goals in reply to set up a possible FA Cup tie with our landlords in two weeks' time. Ominously, Carshalton's two league victories have also come on the road, at Walton Casuals and Walton & Hersham, but only Whyteleafe have scored fewer than their five league goals. The Hornets will be aiming to make it four matches unbeaten after victories over Merstham and Corinthian-Casuals and a draw at home to Burgess Hill Town.
