Hornchurch hoping for action
Fola joins Urchins
Hornchurch are hoping to return to Ryman Premier Division action against Margate tomorrow.
Jimmy McFarlane’s promotion-chasers saw their trip to Carshalton postponed on Saturday, after a home match with Hastings had also been frozen off a week earlier.
Lewis Smith’s injury-time goal had clinched a 1-0 win over East Thurrock in their last outing on January 28, but with the recent wintry weather wiping out most local sport, they remain two points adrift of leaders Billericay with a game in hand.
That gap could grow tonight, though, as Billericay are due to host Hendon at New Lodge.

Urchins will be without suspended trio Smith, Reiss Noel and Frankie Curley should their game go ahead at Bridge Avenue tomorrow, but leading scorer Martin Tuohy is back after a three-game ban and Leon McKenzie has joined the ranks.
The club have also signed former Thurrock winger Fola Orilonishe on loan from Conference South side Sutton.
