A bitterly cold Tuesday night FA trophy clash resulted in a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Hornchurch FC. Tommy Tejan-Sie equalised for the Blues in the 16th minute following Ollie Muldoon’s earlier strike.
Spencer Knight (manager) said he was “disappointed with the result and going out of the Trophy but it was always going to be a tough tie against one of the better teams in the competition.”
He went on to say that there was “no shame in losing away at Hornchurch but [I’m] disappointed in the second half performance after we had played so well in the first half, and [ultimately] a couple of injuries and errors cost us the game in the end.”
He’s staying positive and insists we should not dwell on the result. “Now with the enforced lockdown period, we have to regroup and get ready for whenever the league starts again. We will be hoping to keep the lads prepared and ticking over for a January start but all in all, we don’t want to get too low after one result, especially off the back of some good performances in the previous games. We still want to remain positive and wish Hornchurch all the best in the competition.”
