WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT – This is it – we want to win, and we want your support. Everyone here today needs to get behind the Urchins. East Side, River Side, Has Been Hill – all of you. And keep it up throughout.
PLAYER OF THE MATCH – The sponsor today’s match is Dave Ball. It was Rainbow Tours who sponsored the Margate match, and they chose James Love.
WELCOME – To several new signings - Max Bradford, Scott Curley, Luke Dickens, Ahmed Jahar (transferred from Horsham), Billy Pearce, Alvin Quaye and Carl Rook.
COACH TRAVEL – Wealdstone, and then Harrow Borough, are next up. We need as many as possible to travel to these matches. If you want to go by coach, the price is £10 for adults and £5 for concessions. Please contact Rob Burgess, who can be found selling the 50-50 tickets at the entrance. Or you can contact him on 07531 088777.
THE NEW STRIP – We have a very limited supply of the purple strip in stock and these are on sale from the club shop. The price is £25 for adult sizes and £20 for junior sizes. The home (red and white strip) can be ordered individually, as they are much more expensive. But the good news is that the home strip will come with shorts as well as shirts. The price is will be £35 for adults and £28 for juniors. The club shop is located at the rear of the main Eastside stand, and right next to the boardroom.
HISTORY OF HORNCHURCH FC – We have so far handed over £800 to the football club, and there are now only a few books available, priced at £10 each – and remember – every single penny goes to the club. So, when you buy one, you are effectively donating £10 to the club.
NEW STOCK – We have many old Hornchurch homes and aways for sale, at 30p each. Dart flights are now available, at £2 per set. The new red and white hooped scarves are now on sale in the club shop. They are priced at £6 each and are a limited edition of just one hundred. We still have a small stock of polo shirts, which are priced at £10, and last season’s blue and white striped shirts (the old away kit) for just £10 for adult sizes and £5 for junior sizes. We have a stock of T-shirts available at £3 each, and woollen hats also at £3 each. We have a large stock of badges on sale which includes both the Hornchurch badges together with many from other non-league clubs. These are £3 each or five for £10. Other items on sale include mugs at £2 each, pens at £1 each, air fresheners at £1 each, and wristbands at £1 each.
