McBride more determined
Chairman tackles new Hornchurch debut
Hornchurch chairman Colin McBride will not let the club’s debt get him down.
McBride revealed how a �10,000 demand for CCTV equipment at Bridge Avenue had been sent to the club recently.
But he remains defiant in his bid to get Urchins on to a sounder financial footing.
“It was one we didn’t know about and it’s like a kick in the teeth,” said McBride.

“We’d had no correspondence from this firm since March 2007. I’ve been opening post for the past 18 months and had never heard of them.
“We had a cleaning company asking for the �1,400 they were owed. The work was seven years ago and I wish they had been as vigilant with the people who made the debt in the first place.”
