A return to the town, coupled with some fantastic new facilities and a team playing attractive winning football, has seen Horsham Football Club rank 14th in the list of highest average league attendances below step 2 of the English footballing pyramid last season.

Our figure of 596 was second only to Worthing in the Isthmian League Premier Division and was the third highest in the county behind the Rebels and Hastings United. The top three places were dominated by teams from the Northern Premier League with South Shields (1,669) leading the chart ahead of FC United and Scarborough Athletic, while the neighbouring islands of Guernsey and Jersey feature high in the chart, showing that non-league football is alive and thriving in the Channel Islands.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has followed the Hornets during the 2019/2020 season, both home and away, and can only hope that it is not long before we’re able to welcome you all back through The Camping World Community Stadium turnstiles once more.
