The Urchins head to 13th placed Dereham Town on Saturday looking to extend their unbeaten league run which currently stands at 8 games. However, only 3 of those games have yielded wins so they’ll be hoping to turn draws into wins as they approach the Christmas period.
Both sides were due to play on Tuesday; Hornchurch at home to Bury Town and Dereham away to Norwich United but the frost won on each occasion.
Last Saturday the Urchins played out a 1-1 draw with Maldon & Tiptree. The hosts led courtesy of George Purcell’s second goal of the season but the Jammers equalised with 5 minutes remaining. Deraham Town had a better afternoon winning 3-1 at Heybridge Swifts. Leading goalscorer Gatting opened the scoring before Beaumont bagged a brace in the last 15 minutes to ensure the Magpies took all 3 points.
