Hornchurch wait for Trophy draw

Urchins through, but Boro bow out

Hornchurch are eagerly awaiting today’s FA Trophy first round draw after their 3-0 success at Bideford on Saturday.

Jonathan Hunt hit the crossbar in a goalless first half, but Rickie Hayles broke the deadlock in Devon midway through the second half, touching home a Dave Collis corner.

Captain Elliot Styles doubled the Urchins lead in the 80th minute, heading in from Hunt’s corner.

And Tommy Black sealed victory - and �4,000 in prize money - with a fine finish two minutes from time to make it a happy trip back to Essex for Jimmy McFarlane’s men.

The news was not so good for Romford, meanwhile, as they fell to a 3-0 defeat at Boreham Wood.

Ali Chaaban put Conference South Wood in front after only five minutes and brave Boro conceded again before half time as Matt Toms deflected Chaaban’s cross into his own net.
