Hornchurch hopes increase
McFarlane grateful for mild midweek
Hornchurch are due to host local rivals Aveley at Bridge Avenue on Monday, but all eyes will remain on the news and weather forecasts up until then.
Sport at all levels has been hit by the recent heavy snowfall and plunging temperatures, but as things turned a little milder in midweek, there was reason for some pre-Christmas optimism.
“We hope to get it on,” said McFarlane.
