Its not just changes to the playing staff that has been taking place this summer but also to the club's committee, with Jeff Barrett voted successor to outgoing chairman Mark Wells who stepped down at the end of last season after two years in the role. Jeff will combine the position with that of Club Secretary, a post he has recently taken over from John Lines. In addition, HISC Chairman Sean Bravery has also joined the committee and will bring his passion and knowledge of the club to an already enthusiastic and dedicated team. The club would like to thank the committee for all its hard work throughout the 2014/15 season.

28/06/15 HORNETS SET FOR PREMIER DIVISION

Hard on the heels of the disappointment of relegation from the Ryman League, the Hornets look to have been promoted even before a ball has been kicked, following news of a reshuffle at last week’s AGM of the Sussex County League. The 2015/16 season of the newly-titled Macron Store Southern Combination Football League will see the top tier renamed Premier Division, with divisions Two and Three becoming One and Two respectively. The season is due to kick-off on Saturday 8th August, with fixtures expected to be announced next month. In addition to the Sussex Senior Cup, the club has entered the Sussex RUR Cup and the two national competitions that they are eligible for - the FA Cup and FA Vase, for which the early round draws will be announced on the afternoon of Friday 3 July.

20/06/15 FANS' FAVOURITE CONFIRMS HORNETS EXIT

Tony Nwachukwu is the first high profile departure from Gorings Mead to be confirmed this summer, following an announcement that he will be joining Worthing for the 2015/16 season. Nwachukwu, who scored a hat-trick against the Rebels in our League Cup victory at Woodside Road last season, came through the Hornets' youth ranks to make 226 appearances for his hometown club and became a clear favourite among the Horsham supporters for his spectacular goal celebrations. We wish him well and thank him for his past service to Horsham Football Club.

14/06/15 ALL CHANGE FOR HORNETS YOUTH

Both the U18s and U15s will be under new management next season following the surprise decision of Ivan Raby and Alex Barron to relinquish their roles with immediate effect. The pair admitted that it was a tough decision for them both to have made, having spent ten and four years with the U18s respectively and seen some talented players come through the ranks. Despite the obvious difficulties of managing a side without its own ground, both have remained passionate, dedicated, professional and immensely proud to have coached at the club they have always supported and we thank them for their tremendous efforts, while wishing them well for the future. We now begin the search for their replacement and anyone interested in taking on the role of U18s manager for the 2015/16 season should contact Annie Raby. Meanwhile, we would like to welcome Paul Hodgson to the club as he becomes the new coach of our U15s side, replacing Dan and Glyn Pearse.

Dom di Paola has set his sights on a minimum top three finish next season but admitted he may have to do so with an entirely new side. Speaking to supporters at Thursday night’s AGM, the manager revealed he is halfway towards achieving his aim of establishing a seventeen man squad but was keeping the names of the players close to his chest, preferring to announce his new arrivals once the transfer window opens on 1st July.
