AFC Hornchurch at North Road tomorrow followed by a Race Night as Regent hope to be back in action after 11 days without a game.

Brightlingsea Regent welcome second placed AFC Hornchurch tomorrow hoping to be in action for the first time since the 5-1 away win at Heybridge Swifts on Tuesday 10th November. Regent have won their last 4 games and haven't been at North Road since the 1-0 victory against Maldon & Tiptree on Saturday 24th October which was the first of the four successive wins. The visitors tomorrow were relegated last season from the Ryman Premier and have begun the season well as they look for an immediate return back to the Premier Division winning 13 of their 18 games with an impressive 8 wins from 9 away games. They also boast two of the leading goal scorers in the Division in George Purcell (16 goals) and David Knight (13 goals). Like Regent they are in good form having won 4 of their last 5 in the league so it should be a good match with two in form teams. Regent Manager Webster has new signing Shamido Pedulu to welcome into the squad for the game that kicks off at 3pm.

The 21's make the trip to Saffron Walden Reserves tomorrow hoping to be back in action after being inactive for the whole of November. The two teams met at North Road earlier in the season in a 0-0 draw. Regent currently sitting 7th in the table whilst their hosts are 13th, this game also kicks off at 3pm.

Finally the A team are in Essex County FA Junior Cup action tomorrow in a second attempt to play the game after the weather caused another postponement last Saturday. After a superb result in the previous round beating Harlow Under 21's 1-0 away from home, the A team face another tricky away game at Stifford Town in the 3rd round tie. This game will kick off at 1.30pm.

After the games at 7.30pm there is a Race Night at the club, come and support the Regent this weekend on and off the pitch.
