2/6/14 one in the eye for horsham as defender JOINS hastings

Jahmahl King has labelled the decision to quit Horsham and join county and league rivals Hastings United this week as 'the hardest decision I've had to make'. Much loved by the Hornets' faithful, for his committed performances and amiable off-field persona, Kingy was the recipient of the Board of Directors' award last season but it is his desire to win more trophies that brought about his move to the Pilot Field. Speaking earlier today, he said "I had visions of being at Horsham for a long time, especially walking out at the new ground, but I want to have some trophies and league titles to show for my years of playing when I'm finished and I feel that I have more chance of achieving that at Hastings. The manager and chairman expressed a great deal of admiration in me and offered me a good deal but my wife knows how much I love Horsham so she didn't agree with my decision but I hope everyone understands my reasons for leaving. I believe that everything happens for a reason and would like to thank everyone for their support during my time at Horsham."

1/6/14 LOCAL FAMILIES FEEL BENEFITS OF SUPPORTERS' GENEROSITY

The significance of our supporters' generosity was made known this weekend in an email received from Christy Harp of the charity, Horsham Matters. Inspired by the prospect of helping local families, our fans donated a wide range of non-perishable items to the Horsham Food Bank appeal during the final weeks of the season, provoking this response from Christy. "Your donations have totalled at 80.95 kg and will feed five families of three people for three days each. Your generosity has a direct impact on the community and is very appreciated." We would like to add our own gratitude to everyone who participated in this most worthy of causes.
