03/05/15 FORMER HORSHAM YOUNGSTER MAKES ALBION BOW

The club would like to congratulate James Tilley on making his senior debut for Brighton & Hove Albion in yesterday's goalless draw at Middlesbrough. The striker, who represented the Hornets at U12 and U13 levels before going on to play for Billingshurst, was rewarded for some impressive displays for the Seagulls' Development Squad when brought on for the final seconds of their Championship match at the Riverside Stadium in front of over 33,000 fans. Still only sixteen, James has scored eight times for Albion's U18s this season, including winning goals against Norwich and Liverpool and a hat-trick in a 5-1 win at Tottenham.

30/04/15 2014/15 SEASON'S REVIEW

The phrase “you have to suffer the lows to appreciate the highs” will be of little comfort to Horsham supporters still coming to terms with our relegation but, if ever it was needed to be said, now would be the time before reading Matt Dale's comprehensive review of a disappointing campaign. More...

28/04/15 IVOR ROBERTS

The club was saddened to learn that our former player and coach, Ivor Roberts, passed away recently. More...

26/04/15 TOOTING & MITCHAM UNITED 5 HORSHAM 0

Horsham's tenure in the Isthmian League ended in humiliation yesterday as mid-table Tooting ran in five unanswered goals to leave the Hornets five points adrift of second-bottom Redhill and a 'goals against' tally of one hundred and seven, despite the best efforts of the travelling supporters who had chosen to mark the final match of the season in Elvis Presley inspired fancy dress.
Full report and photos here...

24/04/15 TOOTING & MITCHAM UNITED v HORSHAM: MATCH PREVIEW

Horsham go to Tooting tomorrow hoping to end a dreadful season on a high. Victory for the Hornets, and defeat for Redhill at South Park, will at least avoid us from collecting the 'wooden spoon'. More...

21/04/15 SEMI-FINAL HEARTACHE FOR U18s

There will be no appearance for Horsham in this year's John Ullmann Cup Final after Ben Eades' late header secured a hard-fought victory for ten man Greenwich Borough. But this highly competitive match was overshadowed by a nasty injury to Lewis Reeves that saw the Hornets striker taken to hospital after being knocked out, midway through the second half, after suffering an accidental clash of heads that resulted in play being stopped for almost ten minutes. Full report...

19/04/15 U16s WIN TITLE

The U16s ended an agonising wait of over a month before completing their league campaign with a 3-0 victory over Sedlescombe Rangers to take the Sussex Sunday Youth League title. Joe Kirkham, Matt Dale, and Adam Winkworth scored the goals that meant Sedlescombe could no longer overhaul Paul Gibson's side at the top of the table leaving Horsham Youth to claim a third championship of the season. Full report...

18/04/15 GARETH PICKS UP SUPPORTERS AWARD

Gareth Williams polled seventy per cent of supporters' votes to be named as the Hornets' Player of the Season following today's match against Ramsgate. Tony Nwachukwu's twenty four goals earned him the golden boot award while the board of directors nominated Tom Gilbert as their Player of the Season. Congratulations to them all.

18/04/15 HORSHAM 3 RAMSGATE 5

Horsham’s final home game of the season, and manager Dom Di Paola’s first game in charge at Goring's Mead, ended in a goalfest this afternoon between two of the Ryman Division One South’s basement clubs but which ultimately ended once again in defeat for the Hornets who, despite scoring three times, conceded five to give the new manager a glimpse of the task ahead as he attempts to begin a new chapter for the club. Full report...

17/04/15 PROGRAMME REVIEW

Tomorrow's official match programme is a bumper edition to mark the end of an era and the start of what we hope will be a new and successful one. New boss Dom di Paola graces the cover and, as well as his first thoughts as our new man in charge, we look back at four decades of life in the Isthmian League including favoured memories of players and supporters. We recall our meeting with tomorrow's opponents, Ramsgate, when both were vying for the Division One title, Adam Piggott brings us his final review of the Sussex non-league scene, and chairman Kevin Borrett gives his thoughts on the season along with an update on the new ground. A full youth round-up, along with league tables and manager's assessments, Howie's page, 'meet the visitors', summaries on our last two matches and all the usual stats complete the issue to make it a bargain buy at just £2. Please make sure you pick up a copy tomorrow.

17/04/15 HORSHAM v RAMSGATE: MATCH PREVIEW

It's not often that you reach the penultimate match of the season with both sides desperately needing the three points but that's the scenario for tomorrow's visit of Ramsgate (kick-off 3pm). More...

12/04/15 DI PAOLA: LACK OF PHYSICALITY COST US

Dom Di Paola praised his new side's commitment but was left to rue their 'lack of physicality' after falling to a 2-0 defeat at second-placed Faversham on Saturday. More...

12/04/15 FAVERSHAM REPORT NOW ON-LINE

A full report on yesterday's defeat at Faversham is now on-line, courtesy of Jeff Barrett. Full report...

11/04/15 FAVERSHAM TOWN 2 HORSHAM 0

The Hornets are officially relegated following this afternoon's 2-0 defeat at Faversham Town. A goal in each half by Dean Grant and Matthew Bourne kept alive the hosts' aim of finishing as runners-up to Burgess Hill Town but the Hornets must now look to avoid ending the season in bottom place and hope that they receive a reprieve from relegation.

10/04/15 FAVERSHAM TOWN v HORSHAM: MATCH PREVIEW

Horsham expect to name a fifteen man squad for Dom Di Paola's first game in charge, away to second-placed Faversham Town tomorrow. More...

10/04/15 NEW BOSS TARGETS RETURN TO GLORY DAYS

Dom Di Paola believes that his appointment as Hornets manager will see him achieve his aim of managing in the Ryman Premier Division. The former East Preston boss was a regular on the Horsham terraces in the mid-noughties and is determined to bring the glory days back to a club he believes is 'one of the biggest in the county’. More...

07/04/15 DI PAOLA TAKES CHARGE

Horsham Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Dominic Di Paola as first team manager, following yesterday's departure of Anthony Storey and Cliff Cant. More...

06/04/15 MANAGEMENT DUO RELIEVED OF DUTIES

Horsham Football Club has tonight asked the management duo of Anthony Storey and Cliff Cant to vacate their position with immediate effect. Despite today's victory over Corinthian-Casuals, the club remains in a parlous position at the bottom of the table and thus needs to begin preparation for the new season immediately. Hornets Chairman Kevin Borrett thanked both Storey and Cant for their efforts, which saw some early successes in January and kindled hope that Horsham would climb out of the relegation zone. However, results in February and March were disappointing and, though the pair were given time to turn things around, the club has failed to progress since the departure of player-manager Gary Charman at the end of last year. An announcement on their replacement will be announced later this week.

06/04/15 HORSHAM 2 CORINTHIAN-CASUALS 1

The Hornets' thin hopes of Ryman League survival were boosted with today's victory over a Corinthian-Casuals side who ended the match with only ten men following the dismissal of Jamie Byatt. Full report...

05/04/15 HORSHAM v CORINTHIAN-CASUALS

Tomorrow finds Corinthian-Casuals the visitors for our penultimate home game of the season (kick-off 3pm). After the latest round of matches we find ourselves eight points adrift of safety with just twelve left to play for so nothing less than a win will do for the Hornets. Please play your part by coming along to Goring's Mead and getting behind the team

John Lines' collection of images from yesterday's game are now on-line

04/04/15 WALTON & HERSHAM 3 HORSHAM 0

Horsham stand on the brink of relegation after this afternoon's dismal 3-0 defeat at Walton & Hersham. Wins for fellow strugglers East Grinstead and Hastings United leaves the side eight points from safety with just four games remaining. Full report...

03/04/15 200 CLUB WINNERS

Our congratulations go to Richard Harris for winning the £100 first prize in the April draw of the 200 Club. John Newell won the second prize of £40 and Mrs J Wicks takes the £20 third prize. To find out how you could be among next month's winners, just click here.

03/04/15 EASTER PREVIEW

Easter, the time to celebrate the resurrection from the dead of Jesus Christ in what is one of the most important festivals in the Christian calendar. Yet Horsham supporters will be hoping to celebrate a very different kind of resurrection by 5pm on Monday after two vital matches that are quite simply 'make or break' in our quest to avoid relegation. We take a look at the form of our two opponents this weekend, Walton & Hersham and Corinthian-Casuals, who stand in the way of our progress up the table. More...
