Next up - Horsham away on Saturday, 13th October at Culver Road, Lancing, West Sussex BN15 9AX; FA Trophy preliminary round, kick off 3pm.

Admission: Adults £9, Concessions* £5, Under-16s accompanied free, unaccompanied £1.
* Concessions covers over 60s (60 and over I assume), Under 18s and students (proof of age may be required).

The first thing to point out is that Horsham are currently sharing at Lancing FC on the south coast so don't go to Horsham. If you want to join the coach to get to the ground then check with Hayley Spink on 07542 379789 to see if there are still places available.

The match is being played on the Sussex coast because Horsham are having a new ground prepared in their home town. It's been a long process because the last time we met they were sharing with Horsham YMCA having moved out of the adjacent Queen Street ground. That was four years ago in the same competition albeit in the first qualifying round.

They were struggling on the field at that time and finished bottom of Ryman South at the end of the season. So we travelled with reasonable expectations but on the day didn't rise to the occasion and it was the Hornets' Tony Nwachukwu who scored the only goal of the game.

Horsham returned to Step 4 within a year and are currently fifteenth in the Bostik South East table. Lancing may not be their true home but they are acting like it is by turning it into something of a fortress. Twice this season they have come from two goals down to win and on Saturday they went behind to Step 3 Poole Town in the FA Cup but came back to draw. Ironically they lost the replay 2-1 after taking an early lead.

Just a word of caution. There's plenty of rain forecast for match day and, I understand, a limited amount of cover. Come prepared.
