Locals gathered in the streets around Hornchurch to celebrate as Hornchurch enjoyed an open top bus parade to mark winning the FA Trophy during the 2020/21 season.

The Urchins lifted the FA Trophy for the first time in the clubs history after winning 3-1 to Hereford at the Wembley final back in May.

Mark Stimson’s men then followed that up with another trophy as they beat FA Vase winners Warrington Rylands 3-2 on Saturday to win the Pitching In non league Super Cup.

Manager Mark Stimson said: “It was, like you say special, sometimes you wonder how many people are going to turn out, especially with the weather we’ve had over the last few days but surprisingly loads turned out and it has been a real good afternoon.

“For the Havering events team to put this on as well is fantastic, we thank them for that, and for everyone out there I hope to see as many of you as possible in the upcoming season.”
