This was the Urchins’ first outing of the campaign following the postponement of their previous fixture vs Ware. Barking’s only game of the season to date was a 2-1 reverse at Wingate & Finchley.
In a closely fought game the first half ended goalless before George Farmer opened the scoring on 63 minutes. Barking pressed in search of the equaliser but it was the Urchins, courtesy of 79th minute substitute Bradley Rowland, who added to the scoring on 88 minutes.
Final score. Barking 0, AFC Hornchurch 2.
Hornchurch move up to 4th in the table. Barking are 11th (of 11).
