24/10/14 THREE BRIDGES v HORSHAM: MATCH PREVIEW

Two of Horsham's 'new' signings are likely to be involved when we travel the short distance to Three Bridges for tomorrow's Ryman League 'derby' fixture at Jubilee Walk (kick-off 3pm). Troy Williams and Ryan Marriott have both returned to the club this week as Gary Charman looks to bolster his small squad but supporters will have to wait to see our other new arrival, former Sutton, Walton Casuals and Crawley Down defender Ade Akande who is unavailable for selection this weekend.

20/10/14 Six years, and 194 appearances later!

There was a real feeling of déjà vu when Tony Nwachukwu netted against Sittingbourne on Sunday, for it was six years ago to the day that the talented winger made his Hornets' debut - against the same opponents - so we caught up with him to talk about his emergence as one of the brightest young talents to come through the club's youth ranks in recent years. More...

20/10/14 TON UP FOR BILLY-JOE

Our congratulations go to Billy-Joe King who was awarded with an engraved plate by Club President Frank King, prior to Sunday's game against Sittingbourne, in recognition of reaching one hundred appearances for Horsham. The popular full-back has been a regular in the Hornets side since joining from Tonbridge Angels in September 2013 but was an unused substitute for our FA Trophy victory as he battles back to full fitness.

19/10/14 FIXTURE UPDATE

Wednesday's scheduled meeting with Walton Casuals has been postponed, due to our opponents' FA Trophy commitments. A new date for this fixture will be announced as soon as possible.

19/10/14 HORSHAM 6 SITTINGBOURNE 2

Horsham served up a Sunday best to sweep aside a below-par Sittingbourne side this afternoon, with Gary Charman ending a troubled week with a dazzling hat-trick. The win, Horsham's biggest since defeating Guernsey by the same score last December, sets up a home tie with Division One North side Ware in the FA Trophy 1st Qualifying Round. Full report & photos...

18/10/14 PROGRAMME PREVIEW

17/10/14 HORSHAM v SITTINGBOURNE: MATCH PREVIEW

Gary Charman admits that he is waiting for his luck to change after revealing that he's almost down to the bare bones of the squad for Sunday's FA Trophy tie with Sittingbourne, sponsored by Advance Sales Services UK Ltd. More...

16/10/14 WORTHING REPORT AND IMAGES

A full report from last night's game, plus an excellent set of images, are now on-line courtesy of Matt Dale and John Lines. We thank them both for their efforts on a miserable night for Hornets fans. You can see their work here

15/10/14 WORTHING 4 HORSHAM 1

Horsham were left to rue the 24th minute dismissal of Jamie Hills as they crashed 4-1 at local rivals Worthing tonight. The young defender saw red for a 'professional foul' with the scores level at 1-1, Curtis Gayler having earlier cancelled out Tony Nwachukwu's 4th minute spot-kick, and the Hornets could only hold out until the 57th minute when Omar Bugiel gave Worthing the lead. Two late goals by Harvey Sparks and Bugiel gave the scoreline a more emphatic feel.

15/10/14 WARREN GIBSON

Warren Gibson has called time on his brief Horsham career and joined Fleet Town. The versatile teenager made just one start in a total of six appearances in our colours, after signing from Woking during the summer, and in a conversation with CEO John Lines this morning asked to pass on his thanks and best wishes to all at the club, including the supporters, for making him so welcome. Warren said that he really enjoyed being at Horsham and was sorry to have to leave but hopes to return one day.

15/10/14 WORTHING v HORSHAM

It's round two of four this evening as we travel to Woodside Road to take on Worthing in a rearranged Ryman League clash (kick-off 7.45pm). These two already familiar clubs, whose rivalry goes back more than a century, met as recently as a week ago when the sides fought out an entertaining seven goal affair in the League Cup and, having also been paired in the Sussex Senior Cup, will no doubt be sick of the sight of each other by the season's end. Both sides are expected to ring the changes from last week's match, with Jamie Cade likely to replace the injured Max Miller, while Worthing are sure to retain the same side that defeated Whitstable 3-1 on Saturday, a game in which former Hornet Trevor McCreadie scored twice.

14/10/14 LEAGUE CUP UPDATE

Our Robert Dyas League Cup Second Round tie at Burgess Hill Town will take place on Wednesday 26th November, kick-off 7.30pm

13/10/14 TROY WILLIAMS

Troy Williams has returned to Grays Athletic after his month long loan from the Essex club ended at the weekend. Although the Hornets' own form was patchy during this period, the midfielder enjoyed a successful time at the club having scored in each of his first two matches and was responsible for five 'assists'. The twenty year old tweeted "want to thank all the fans and the lads for making me welcome I thoroughly enjoyed my time! All the best for the season @HorshamFC.”

13/10/14 FIXTURE UPDATE

Our Sussex Senior Cup Second Round tie with Worthing will take place at Goring's Mead on Tuesday 4th November, kick-off 7.30pm

11/10/14 SUSSEX SENIOR CUP DRAW

Today's draw for the Second Round of the Parafix Sussex Senior Cup has seen Horsham paired with Worthing. The match is to be played at Goring's Mead no later than Wednesday 12th November.

11/10/14 HORSHAM 0 FOLKESTONE INVICTA 3

Horsham drew a blank for the second successive weekend and slip into the bottom three as Folkestone maintained their grip on this fixture with three unanswered goals that takes them into the play-off places. Full report...

10/10/14 HORSHAM v FOLKESTONE INVICTA: MATCH PREVIEW

Horsham will be hoping to erase the memories of two of last season's heaviest defeats when they host Folkestone Invicta tomorrow (kick-off 3pm). More...

08/10/14 WORTHING 3 HORSHAM 4

Tony Nwachukwu hit a hat-trick as Horsham edged tonight's entertaining Robert Dyas League Cup tie at Worthing to set up a second round visit to Burgess Hill Town. Nwachukwu took his career tally to fifty-one goals in all competitions with three superb strikes but it was Worthing who opened the scoring through Ben Pope, only for Max Miller to equalise with his first in Horsham colours. Will Berry restored the hosts' lead but a brace from Nwachukwu gave Horsham a 3-2 half-time lead and he added his third in the second half to make Trevor McCreadie's late reply a mere consolation from the hosts. Full report

08/10/14 WORTHING v HORSHAM

Warren Gibson is in line for his first appearance in the Horsham starting line-up tonight as we travel to Worthing for a Robert Dyas League Cup tie (ko 7.45pm). The versatile Gibson, who is dual-registered with Woking FC, has made just five substitute appearances for the Hornets since arriving in the summer but he is one of a number of players likely to be given their chance to impress tonight with Gary Charman's squad likely to be missing a number of regulars. "We won't be at full strength but we'll put out a squad that we believe can win the tie" said Charman. "Obviously we want to win every game we play but if someone offered me three points against Folkestone on Saturday for defeat tonight then I'd take the points every time! Jamie Cade has a virus, Lewis Hamilton is unavailable and three or four others are carrying knocks so this is a perfect opportunity to take a look at some of those who haven’t played much this season."

07/10/14 GARY'S THOUGHTS ON CHIPSTEAD DRAW

Gary Charman admitted he was both pleased and disappointed at taking a point from Saturday’s goalless draw at Chipstead. More...

04/10/14 PLANNING HEARING UPDATE

Although we were hoping to have formal confirmation of the planning hearing this week, due to the complexity of planning applications DC/14/1090 & 1091, Horsham District Council Planners have taken the regrettable but understandable decision not to take these to Development Control (North) Committee on October 21st. A date in November is now to be arranged and it will be posted here on Hornets Review as soon as we know. Horsham FC CEO John Lines said "There is so much detail to go into this application that it is far better to lose a few weeks and get it right rather than go too early with an incomplete picture. The Planners are correct to delay the Planning Hearing whilst the final components are examined and put into place"

04/10/14 CHIPSTEAD 0 HORSHAM 0

Horsham and Chipstead fought out a dour goalless draw in this afternoon's Ryman League clash but the point was enough to lift the Hornets up a place to twentieth in the table. Chipstead had the better of what few goalscoring efforts were on offer but Gareth Williams was in fine form, producing a number of fine saves as Gary Charman's side recorded their third clean sheet of the season. A full match report and photos can be found here
