Hornets head west in pre-season

Hornets’ followers yet to book their summer holiday might want to consider a ‘staycation’ and visit the popular surfing resort of Newquay this July. Why? Well the town’s local club has agreed to host Dom Di Paola’s side as part of the preparations for the 2018/19 campaign. Unsurprisingly Horsham and Newquay AFC, of the South West Peninsula Premier Division, have never previously met so the prospect of a new ground and opponent is sure to appeal to the club’s loyal supporters – even if the logistics of travelling the two hundred and fifty or so miles down to Cornwall might prove to be a deterrent for some.

For those seeking their football fix slightly closer to home, the Hornets will be hosting Merstham and Loxwood, as well as Wessex Premier League side AFC Portchester, with away matches scheduled at Eastbourne Borough, Burgess Hill, Hassocks, and Dorking Wanderers, who will be playing at their new Meadowbank Stadium home.

The provisional pre-season schedule is as follows:

  • Tue 10th July v Eastbourne Borough (a) ko 7.45pm
  • Sat 14th July v Merstham (h) ko 11am
  • Tue 17th July v Burgess Hill Town (a) ko 7.45pm
  • Sat 21st July v Dorking Wanderers (a) ko 3pm
  • Tue 24th July v AFC Portchester (h) 7.45pm
  • Sat 28th July v Newquay (a) ko 3pm
  • Tue 31st July v Hassocks (a) ko 7.45pm
  • Sat 4th Aug v Loxwood (h) ko 11am
