Hornchurch lauded with open top bus parade

By Ian Townsend

Urchins FA Trophy exploits recognised

Our FA Trophy winners Hornchurch will deservedly receive the kind of treatment normally reserved for FA Cup winners on Saturday, as their local council lays on an open top bus parade to mark their achievements.

The parade will start at their Bridge Avenue home at 2PM, and then do a tour of the area before ending up at the Leisure Centre at 3PM. If you'd like to head out bedecked in your Urchins finery to shout, cheer and reminisce about being called a "pub team" by some northern opponents who were to find out otherwise, then we've included the route here.

Congratulations once more to the Urchins and their supporters. We remain very, very proud of you- and look forward to seeing you life the Pitching In Super Cup on August 7th!
