Boss hails Hornchurch win

Maidenhead United 2 Hornchurch 4

Hornchurch manager Jimmy McFarlane was delighted to see his side win at Conference South rivals Maidenhead last night.

Urchins travelled to York Road to face the high-flying Magpies on the back of a frustrating draw with struggling Farnborough at the weekend.

And they raced into a 3-0 lead at half-time thanks to Martin Tuohy, new signing Ben Bowditch and an own goal.

The hosts replied after the break, but Tuohy struck his second of the night from the penalty spot and although Maidenhead claimed a second there was no denying Urchins, who climbed to 11th in the table.

McFarlane said: “I’ll take the three points, it was coming.

“My only complaint was the goals we gave away. At 4-2, if they had got another one we could’ve been hanging on.”
