Hornchurch have been handed a long trip to Hereford in their third qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Urchins booked their place with a 2-1 win at Bostik North rivals Hertford Town on Saturday, when Leon McKenzie cancelled out the home side’s opener.

George Purcell then netted a late winner, before he was given his marching orders for retaliation in stoppage time.

Victory saw Urchins pick up £4,500 in prize money, having already pocketed £4,925 from beating Brentwood and Romford in the earlier rounds.

And another £7,000 will be up for grabs on September 30, when they travel to Edgar Street to take on the in-form Evo Stik South Premier side, who beat Kempston Rovers 4-0 at the weekend after an 8-0 win over Godalming Town in the first qualifying round.

The Bulls beat Royston Town (4-1) and Stratford Town (5-2) in between their two FA Cup ties and will provide a tough test.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
