Pre-season friendlies postponed

Hornchurch and Romford get night off

Hornchurch’s pre-season friendly against Brentwood at Barking tonight has been called off.

Ongoing disturbances in London have led to a host of sporting events being postponed and a statement on the club’s website said: “Following consultation with the Metropolitan Police, the decision has been taken to cancel this evening’s ‘away’ friendly vs Brentwood Town which was to be staged at Barking FC’s ground.”

Hornchurch will end their preparations for the new Ryman Premier Division season against Maidstone on Saturday (1pm).
