28/03/15 HORSHAM 1 WHYTELEAFE 3

Two goals in the opening twenty-five minutes paved the way for Whytleafe's victory this afternoon but they were made to work hard by a Horsham side for whom Greg Berry scored his first goal to reduce the deficit before half-time. The Hornets went close to levelling in the second half, but were thankful to Gareth Williams for a number of fine saves before Jason Thompson wrapped things up nine minutes from time. Full report & photos....

22/03/15 CUP JOY FOR U14s

The U14s secured the first part of what they hope will be a double success this season by taking the Sussex Sunday Youth League Cup Final with a 4-0 win over ASC Strikers this afternoon. With just one point needed from their last two league games to secure the league title, the players kept their focus to earn Horsham Youth their second trophy of the campaign thanks to two goals from Jack Frankland and one apiece from James Pearse and Elliott Bennett. A report on the game can be seen here.

13/03/15 HORSHAM 0 WHITSTABLE TOWN 2

The Hornets' frailties were cruelly exposed by promotion-chasing Whitstable who cruised to a 2-0 win at Goring's Mead this afternoon. Full report...

13/03/15 HORSHAM v WHITSTABLE TOWN: MATCH PREVIEW

After two heavy away defeats, Horsham will be glad to return to Goring’s Mead tomorrow but they face a side who boast an impressive record on the road in 2015. Although beaten 1-0 by visiting Tooting last weekend, victories at Ramsgate, Folkestone, Faversham and Hythe have helped catapult Whitstable Town to the fringes of the play-off places so both teams will have contrasting incentives to take maximum points this Saturday. While the Oystermen remain on track to record their highest ever league placing, the Hornets have eight games in which to save themselves from relegation and victory tomorrow would put them in great heart for next weekend’s six-pointer with fellow strugglers Hastings United. History is on the Hornets’ side, having lost just once in the five league meetings to date, although the Kent club did come out on top in September when Kane Rowland and Ian Pulman’s goals earned the points at Belmont Road either side of a Troy Williams reply. Tomorrow's match is sponsored by Tanbury Ltd, Southwater's Independent Garage, to whom we extend our thanks for their generous support.

13/03/15 FIXTURE NEWS

The club has accepted an invitation to play a friendly against Littlehampton Town on Tuesday night. The match will take place at the high-flying County Leaguers' Sportsfield ground, kick-off 7.30pm. Admission is free of charge.

12/03/15 WILF HUGILL

We were saddened to learn of the death, on Tuesday, of our former player Wilf Hugill. Wilf was a highly-regarded defender who captained the side in our FA Cup 1st Round tie against Swindon Town in 1966 and was among the Queen Street crowd the next time we reached that stage of the competition, some forty years later, when we entertained Maidenhead United. Wilf joined the club from Worthing and played in the Sussex Senior Cup Final against Eastbourne Town in 1967 before returning to Woodside Road later that year. Our condolences go to Wilf's family at this sad time.

08/03/15 U15s clinch title

Harvey McLeod's first half header was enough to secure the points for the U15s at Maidenbower today and, with it, the Sussex Sunday Youth League Division Three title. The Hornets have yet to drop a point this season but were made to work hard for their victory by the bottom of the table side and it took a late save from goalkeeper Tom Gandy before they could celebrate. A full report on the match can be found here.

08/03/15 HYTHE REPORT AND IMAGES

Matt Dale's detailed match report is now on-line, along with some superb action shots by John Lines. Full report...

07/03/15 HYTHE TOWN 4 HORSHAM 0

It was another sorry tale for the Hornets who returned from Hythe on the end of a rather harsh 4-0 defeat this afternoon. Trailing 1-0 at the break, albeit rather fortuitously after the hosts had twice been thwarted by the woodwork, the controversial second half dismissal of captain Lewis Hamilton proved pivotal as the Kent side ran in three goals in the final half hour to leave us four points adrift at the bottom of the table and a further three from safety. A full report will follow on Sunday evening.

06/03/15 HYTHE TOWN v HORSHAM: MATCH PREVIEW

28/02/15 FOLKESTONE INVICTA 5 HORSHAM 0

Horsham's hopes of avoiding the drop took another blow this afternoon as an Ian Draycott hat-trick helped Folkestone to an emphatic 5-0 victory at Cheriton Road. A harsh handball award against Anthony Storey got the ball rolling and, although Gareth Williams saved the initial spot-kick, Draycott followed up to score. Invicta added two more by the half hour, courtesy of Jordan Wright and Ashley Miller, with a second half brace by Draycott securing his treble and it could have been even worse for the visitors as Draycott missed a late penalty. Wins for Ramsgate and East Grinstead, and a point for Redhill, means we are now six points away from safety with just nine matches remaining.

27/02/15 FOLKESTONE INVICTA v HORSHAM: MATCH PREVIEW

Club captain Lewis Hamilton looks set to make his first start in six games when the Hornets visit fourth placed Folkestone Invicta tomorrow, and there's more good news with the likely return to action of Tom Gilbert. More...

21/02/15 HORSHAM 3 THREE BRIDGES 4

An eventful match, played in front of a season's best attendance, saw Horsham beaten 4-3 to remain at the foot of the table. Seven goals, two penalties and a sending-off all conspired to give the supporters plenty of talking points from a feisty local derby that went the way of Three Bridges for the second time this season. Full report...
