26/11/14 BURGESS HILL TOWN 5 HORSHAM 1

The Hornets were left battered and bruised after crashing out of the League Cup at all-conquering Burgess Hill tonight. Byron Napper suffered a gashed head early on and it was while Horsham were down to ten men that they went behind. To their credit they forced an equaliser through the returning Max Miller but a disastrous five minute spell saw them concede three times to effectively end the contest before half-time. Gareth Williams prevented the hosts from doubling the score in the second half but this was a chastening experience for Horsham who must pick themselves up ahead of Sunday's FA Trophy tie. Full report and photos...

26/11/14 BURGESS HILL TOWN v HORSHAM

Tonight Horsham make the first of two trips in eleven days to the lion's den or, more specifically, the Green Elephants Stadium where they take on Burgess Hill Town. A week on Saturday Gary Charman's side will try to become the first to defeat the high-flying Hillians in the league this season and they will have a dress rehearsal this evening in the 2nd round of the Robert Dyas League Cup (kick-off 7.30pm). Our hosts are offering reduced admission to tonight's tie of £6 adults, £3 concessions and FREE entry for U18s.

25/11/14 GETTING TO KNOW: MARK HAWTHORNE

He’s made sixty appearances for the Hornets, was voted Player of the Season and helped the club to promotion to the Premier Division, but how much do you know about Mark Hawthorne? We spoke to the club’s first team coach recently to find out more about a career that has taken him the length of the country, from Sheffield to Torquay, as well as playing in Europe and we find out more about his current role with the club as well as getting his views on the Premier League. More...

25/11/14 HAYES COACH FILLING UP

The coach to Maidenhead this coming Sunday, for our FA Trophy tie with Hayes & Yeading, is now almost full with just two seats remaining. To book your place, please contact Jeff Barrett on 07712 888980 or by email

21/11/14 SOUTH PARK v HORSHAM: MATCH PREVIEW

Cup football takes a back seat, for this Saturday at least, when Gary Charman takes his near full strength squad on the relatively short trip to South Park as the Hornets return to the serious issue of picking up much needed league points. More...

Our league fixture against Tooting & Mitcham, postponed from the weekend, will now take place at Goring's Mead on January 14, kick-off 7.30pm.

15/11/14 PRESSURE IS OFF US, INSISTS COACH

Mark Hawthorne believes that the pressure will all be on Hayes & Yeading when our two sides meet in the FA Trophy in a fortnight's time but insisted that the Hornets mustn't let their standards slip after Saturday's display at Barkingside. More...

15/11/14 HORNETS HANDED TOUGH DRAW

Horsham are going to have to upset the form guide if they are to reach the first round proper of the FA Trophy, having been paired with Hayes & Yeading in today's draw. The Middlesex club, who play their home matches at Maidenhead FC, are managed by former Liverpool and Eire defender Phil Babb and currently occupy ninth spot in Conference South, sixty places above the Hornets. The match will be played over the weekend of 29/30 November.

15/11/14 BARKINGSIDE 1 HORSHAM 3

A superb strike by Jamie Ampleford was the highlight of an impressive Horsham display as they eased in to the Third Qualifying Round of the FA Trophy with victory over Barkingside this afternoon. Full report and photos....

14/11/14 BARKINGSIDE v HORSHAM: MATCH PREVIEW

Barkingside will hold a pitch inspection at 9.30am tomorrow morning, ahead of our FA Trophy 2nd Qualifying Round tie, the details of which will be posted on this website shortly after.

14/11/14 HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO HORNETS REVIEW!

This month marks the tenth anniversary of Hornets Review so we thought we'd take a brief look back at its formation, including the video clip that spawned the website's launch, while thanking some of those people responsible for it's success. More...

13/11/14 WELCOME, SAMIR

The club would like to welcome its newest recruit, 26 year old Samir Hadi, who agreed to join us today from Ware. Samir has recently moved into the area due to work, and is expected to go straight into the squad for Saturday’s FA Trophy match at Barkingside. Described by Gary Charman as a versatile player who can slot into any position, Samir is a Football Development Coach at Tottenham Hotspur who has previously played for Harefield United, Hertford Town and Broxbourne Borough before joining Ware for whom he made eighteen appearances this season, scoring one goal. Welcome, Samir.

11/11/14 HORSHAM 0 WORTHING 2

Horsham fell to defeat tonight at a rain-lashed Goring's Mead as Worthing scored a goal in each half to move deservedly into the third round of the Sussex Senior Cup. Full report...

10/11/14 HORSHAM v WORTHING: MATCH PREVIEW

Our quest for Sussex Senior Cup glory begins on Tuesday evening when we welcome Worthing to Goring’s Mead for a second round tie (kick-off 7.30pm). This will be the third time the two sides have met this season, with both clubs registering a victory, and each will be hopeful of an extended run in a competition that neither has reached the final of for at least seven years. Although both clubs have a proud history in the county’s premier cup competition, with twenty-eight post-war final appearances between them, Horsham have gone out at the first hurdle in each of the last two years and suffered a humbling third round defeat at Littlehampton Town in 2011/12 and, while Worthing were beaten semi-finalists last season, they too had suffered previously three unproductive seasons. Whether either manager opts to play his first choice eleven, ahead of their respective FA Trophy ties at the weekend, remains to be seen but Tony Nwachukwu is a doubt for the Hornets having taken a painful kick in his side during Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Ramsgate and will undergo a fitness test before the match. The tie will be decided on the night, with extra-time and penalties taken if necessary.

8/11/14 HORSHAM ROTARY CLUB - AN APOLOGY

On Friday we reported that Gatwick Diamond Rotary Club were responsible for organising the recent Children in Need event at Gatwick Airport, supported by our own Howie the Hornet. It has since been pointed out to us that the activities were, in fact, arranged by the Rotary Club of Horsham and we are pleased set the record straight. The event was the culmination of three days of fundraising by RCH that looks set to raise in the region of £8,500 for the BBC charity and we would like to say a massive well done to Howie and all his colleagues on a magnificent effort.

8/11/14 RAMSGATE 1 HORSHAM 1

Horsham earned themselves a valuable point from yesterday's trip to Kent in what was a scrappy game with few chances on offer for either side. Byron Napper broke the deadlock in the second half with his first goal of the season but Rams player-manager Dean Hill levelled things up from distance, a quarter of an hour from the end. Matt Dale and John Lines provide the report and images here

7/11/14 HOWIE & PALS DO THEIR BIT FOR CHILDREN IN NEED

Howie the Hornet was at his charitable best last Saturday, helping to raise money for BBC’s Children In Need appeal. More...

7/11/14 RAMSGATE v HORSHAM: MATCH PREVIEW

Gary Charman faces a fitness test ahead of tomorrow’s visit to Ramsgate for what has surely become a must-win game for the Hornets. More...

6/11/14 HASTINGS GAME SWITCHED

With County Cup ties taking priority over league matters, Tuesday's visit of Hastings United has been postponed and replaced by our Sussex Senior Cup tie against Worthing. This match will kick-off at 7.30pm. Regular admission prices apply.

5/11/14 BARKINGSIDE TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS

The club will be running a coach to our FA Trophy tie against Barkingside on Saturday 15th November, priced at £12 return. Our opponents play at Ilford FC's Cricklefield Stadium, a difficult journey round the M25/A13 or a 20 minute train ride from London's Liverpool Street station, so why not let someone else do the driving and travel with the players to this important cup game? Departure from Queensway is 11am and you can book your place by contacting Jeff Barrett on 07712 888980 or by email

3/11/14 FA TROPHY DRAW

Two of the lowest ranking sides still in this season’s FA Trophy will meet in the 2nd Qualifying Round after the Hornets were paired with Ilford-based Barkingside in today’s draw. The Essex club currently occupy 20th place in Ryman League Division One North, the same division as Saturday’s defeated opponents Ware, but produced a memorable victory over Kingstonian in the previous round in what is only their second season in non-league’s premier cup competition. The match will take place at Cricklefield Stadium on Saturday 15th November and a full preview of this match will appear a few days before.

1/11/14 WELCOME TO OUR LATEST RECRUITS

Our two newest recruits proved to be lucky omens, having both played their part in yesterday's 1-0 win over Ware. Defender Ade Akande, who was drafted into the starting XI in place of the ill Lewis Hamilton, lists Sutton United, Walton Casuals and Crawley Down Gatwick as his former clubs while Farzad Bidgood, who came on as a second half substitute, returns to the club having played for our U18s in 2010/11. The midfielder has also enjoyed spells at Three Bridges, Oakwood, Illinois Central College (USA) and began the season with Horsham YMCA. Welcome to them both.

You can watch Gary Charman giving his views on today's 1-0 win over Ware here, courtesy of Amy Thompson, with assistant coach Ian Varley's post-match interview with BBC Sussex's Bob Papworth also available on-line here.

1/11/14 HORSHAM 1 WARE 0

Tony Nwachukwu ended a perfect few days by scoring the only goal of this afternoon's closely-fought FA Trophy tie at Goring's Mead. The winger, who signed a new contract with the club on Wednesday, headed home Ryan Marriott's cross to put the club into the 2nd Qualifying Round for the first time since 2010 but it took a stunning save by Gareth Williams to secure the victory. Full report & match photos....
