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.

13/02/15 GUERNSEY v HORSHAM: MATCH PREVIEW

The Hornets head across the Channel this weekend for a match against mid-table Guernsey, hoping to return to winning ways after taking just a single point from their last four games that has seen them return to the bottom of the table.

10/02/15 MERSTHAM 2 HORSHAM 1

A stoppage time goal proved costly for the second successive Tuesday. going down 2-1 at promotion-chasing Merstham tonight. The Hornets held their hosts until two minutes before the break, when Tommy Hutchings found the breakthrough, but a highly creditable point looked on the cards when Bailo Camara glanced home a 67th minute equaliser. Richie Welch hit the woodwork in the closing moments before Omar Folkes broke Horsham hearts in added on time. Redhill's come-from-behind 3-2 success over South Park means Horsham return to the bottom of the table. A full report will follow on Wednesday evening.

06/02/15 ROY WELLS

The club were saddened this week to learn of the death of Roy Wells, who passed away on Tuesday night after a long battle with Parkinson's Disease. Roy, who grew up in Horsham's Rushams Road, supported the club for seventy years and was a Queen Street regular during the post-war years of the 1940s and 1950s and recalled seeing the many coaches that took the hundreds of supporters to our FA Cup tie with Notts County in 1947. Although his attendance diminished after moving away from the area, Roy's interest was rekindled through his sons Mark and Steven with whom he would travel up from his Hayling Island home, rarely missing a match at home or away throughout the 1990s and early 2000s. A minute's silence will be held in Roy's memory before tomorrow's match against Chipstead.

03/02/15 HORSHAM 2 TOOTING & MITCHAM UNITED 2

A Stefan Cox goal, five minutes into stoppage time, denied the Hornets two precious points from tonight's clash with Tooting & Mitcham. After a goalless first half, in which Richie Welch had Horsham's best chance, Tooting went close to breaking the deadlock with a shot that hit the crossbar but it was the Hornets who took the lead when Bailo Camara headed in Tom Vickers' cross. Frankie Sawyer levelled from the spot, three minutes later, and Tooting then saw an effort cleared off the line before Tony Nwachukwu restored Horsham's lead with eleven minutes remaining. However, a red card for Nwachukwu meant the hosts had to survive seven minutes of added time with only ten men and their resistance was broken at the death when Cox earned the visitors a deserved share of the spoils. A full report will follow on Wednesday.

03/02/15 HORSHAM v TOOTING & MITCHAM UNITED: MATCH PREVIEW

It's not every day that you can name a Scottish FA Cup finalist in your squad but that's what Anthony Storey and Cliff Cant will be doing for tonight's Ryman League visit of Tooting & Mitcham after the arrival of former Dunfermline Athletic defender Richie Byrne. The 33 year old Dubliner, who has also played in the UEFA Cup for Shamrock Rovers and Aberdeen, made a handful of Football League appearances for Oldham Athletic and Darlington and represented his native Ireland at 'B' level before dropping into the non-league game with the likes of Bedfont Sports, Hungerford Town and, more recently, Egham Town. Horsham will be hoping that Byrne will be able to sure up a backline that has conceded six goals in its last two matches, starting with tonight's meeting with a Tooting side that has won just one of their last 14 games and have not recorded an away victory since the opening day of November. KO is 7.30pm

01/02/15 HORSHAM v REDHILL REPORT

Matt Dale's report on Saturday's 4-0 home loss to Redhill is now on-line. Thanks to Matt, and to John Lines for his excellent photography. Full report...

31/1/15 HORSHAM 0 REDHILL 4

A second half collapse means the Hornets remain in the bottom three tonight after Redhill ran in four goals without reply to leapfrog their hosts and secure a league double. Trevor McCreadie missed a great chance to give Horsham a first half lead but Redhill powered ahead after the break, taking the lead through Tyrone Pink and doubling their advantage through defender Jon Difford. Two goals in the final eight minutes, by subs Alex Teniola and Leonard Mazzone, put an emphatic slant on the scoreline, with Horsham's misery compounded by the late dismissal of Tom Hughes. A full report will follow on Sunday.

30/1/15 HORSHAM v REDHILL: MATCH PREVIEW

27/1/15 SOUTH PARK 2 HORSHAM 3

Horsham recorded their fourth win in six games under joint-managers Anthony Storey and Cliff Cant with a 3-2 success at South Park this evening that moves the Hornets off the bottom of the table for the first time since early December. Richie Welch, with his first goal for the club, and Trevor McCreadie scored either side of a Chris Smith goal to give us the interval lead but when Smith levelled in the second half it needed Tony Nwachukwu's 19th goal of the season to secure the three points. A full match report will follow on Wednesday.

27/1/15 TOMMY'S BACK

There was a surprise face in the Hornets line up for tonight's Ryman League clash at South Park with Tom Graves starting the match in the centre of defence having rejoined the club earlier today. Graves, who began the season at East Grinstead, has played over 250 times for the club since debuting in November 2003 and was put straight into tonight's side after Tom Gilbert failed to recover from a knock.

26/1/15 SOUTH PARK v HORSHAM: MATCH PREVIEW

Victory for Horsham at South Park tomorrow night would be enough to lift them off the bottom of the table for the first time since the start of December. More...

24/1/15 WALTON CASUALS 0 HORSHAM 2

The Hornets' revival continues after this afternoon's vital 2-0 success at Walton Casuals. Second half goals from Trevor McCreadie, and a Tony Nwachukwu penalty, were just reward for an impressive display that was achieved without five regular starters. The win takes Horsham level on points with Ramsgate and Redhill at the bottom of the table. Full report...
