Bostik North: Ware 0 Hornchurch 4 (Styles 18, Purcell 61, 80p, McKenzie 70)

A George Purcell double helped Hornchurch return to winning ways with a comfortable 4-0 success at Ware in the Bostik North.

Having lost each of their last four games in all competitions, Urchins were need of a victory to get their campaign back on track.

Skipper Elliot Styles led by example for the Bridge Avenue club, opening the scoring in the 18th minute.

However, it took until the 61st minute for Jimmy McFarlane’s men to add their second of the match, with Purcell opening his account for the afternoon.

That seemed to open the floodgates, with Leon McKenzie getting in on the act in the 70th minute.

And with 10 minutes left in the match, Purcell wrapped up the win from the penalty spot.

Hornchurch are back in action next Saturday when they host Hertford Town as they bid for back-to-back successes in the league.

Ware: Coulton, Appiah, Flynn, Larner (Mohammed 78), Madden, Karagul, Milner, Oujdi, Kamanan (Dobson 59), Antoine, Georgiou (Josephs 50).

Subs: Madu, Wilson.

Hornchurch: Mott, Bentley (Hursit 83), Porter, Lee, Cooper, Styles, Fairweather-Johnson (Joseph 81), Chouman, McKenzie, Purcell, Warner.

Subs: Fanimo, Roberts.

Attendance: 88.
