Hornchurch boss Jimmy McFarlane was pleased to be back to winning ways at the first time of asking with Tuesday’s 4-0 rout of his former side Thurrock in the Ryman League Cup.

George Purcell returned from his six-game ban with a bang, scoring twice, while there was a welcome goal for Martin Tuohy and another from midfielder Danny Johnson.

All that came on the back of Saturday’s 2-1 Ryman Premier loss at Peacehaven & Telscombe, which saw the Urchins fall to the bottom of the table.

But McFarlane was extremely happy with Tuesday’s response.

“There was plenty of positives from Tuesday’s game,” said McFarlane.

“It was great to have George back and in the goals straight away, and Junior Luke came off the bench following his injury trouble.

“Scoring four and keeping a clean sheet meant it was a perfect night.”

But the Urchins boss reserved special praise for Tuohy after his barren run in front of goal this season.

The striker has scored just two all season before Tuesday, and McFarlane hopes the goal gives Tuohy the confidence to kick on.

“When Martin scored that was the biggest celebration of the night,” he added.

“He certainly deserved it. He’s missed some easy chances by his own high standards recently, but he was playing down the middle and could have scored a hat-trick.

“But it’s just nice to have him back in the goals and hopefully that will be the start of a good run for him.”
