Bowers add another!

Urchins record goalscorer is next into the Len Salmon


Bowers and Pitsea have announced yet another impressive signing, with the arrival of striker George Purcell.

Purcell is the record goalscorer at Hornchurch, with 149 goals in 279 appearances, but left the club last summer to join Canvey Island. He made a dozen appearances for the Gulls, scoring six times, then moved on to sign for Grays Athletic and scored six more. His last appearance for Athletic was in victory against Great Wakering Rovers in mid January, and he then moved to play for Rovers, scored on his debut, but only played twice more before ending a nomadic campaign at Ashford United, joining a month before the lockdown and playing only five times- but still managing to find the net on four occasions.
