Hornchurch interim boss Colin McBride is pleased to comfortably to progress into the next round of the Velocity Trophy with a 3-0 win over Chipstead.

A brace from George Purcell and another goal from Leon McKenzie helped them past the Bostik South Central side in their third round tie at Bridge Avenue.

And although it was the first game since Jimmy McFarlane resigned from his role as manager – the former Urchins chairman believes they went about their business well considering it was an emotional evening.

“I said we’re here to win football games and that’s what we’ve got to do tonight, and I think we went about it really well, as it was a potential banana skin game.

“In the first-half I think we hit the woodwork three times, we should have taken chances, and maybe a couple at the death so it could have been 8-0 really.

“We’re in the next round, favourable draw so hopefully we can now look forward to Saturday with a bit more confidence than what we were Sunday morning.”

More to come from Colin McBride about Jimmy McFarlane’s departure.
