Tuohy happy to stay with Hornchurch

Striker ready for Conference South

Hornchurch striker Martin Tuohy feels he deserves a second crack at the Conference South after signing a new deal to keep him at Bridge Avenue for another year.

Tuohy’s 31-goal haul last season shot him into Urchins record books as only the 11th player post war to score over 30 goals in a season.

And his goals proved vital as Jimmy McFarlane’s side earned promotion via the Ryman League play-offs.

Tuohy has tried his hand at the higher level before, leaving Aveley with manager Rod Stringer to join Braintree, but the move did not work out for the 2008-09 Ryman Golden Boot winner.

This time around Tuohy feels he can do himself justice, saying: “I was happy at signing a new deal. I’m happy and ready to enjoy a test at the next level.

“The travelling wasn’t a problem on the Saturdays, but the only concern was the Tuesday games with the work commitments, but I feel it can work.

“It didn’t quite work out for me at Braintree, maybe I wasn’t good enough for that level at the time and the manager realised that but I feel I’m ready for another crack at this level.”
