Hornchurch must go down to Devon

Trophy draw sends Urchins west

Hornchurch face the long trip down to Devon in the next round of the FA Trophy.

Today’s draw handed Urchins an away tie against Southern League side Bideford, who beat Dulwich at the weekend.

Boss Jimmy McFarlane said: “We could’ve done with a more local one, but sometimes you think the draw is hard and you end up getting through, so it doesn’t matter who you play.

“We do always like to go and look at who we’re playing and we’re working out if we can get to see them.

“We went to Team Bath one Sunday when we were at Thurrock.”

Romford must also travel, but face only a short journey around the M25.
