After an absence of five years, we are delighted that Horsham Football Club will once again be represented in the FA Youth Cup.

A 6-0 defeat at Raynes Park on September 24th, 2015, was the Hornets’ last participation in the nationwide competition but Mark Hawthorne’s reformed U18s will have the opportunity to belatedly atone for that heavy setback when they travel to their counterparts from Burgess Hill Town in the Preliminary Round of this season’s competition.

It is sure to be a tough test for our youngsters, against a Hillians side that has a tradition for producing exciting young players, but, if successful, their reward would be a mouthwatering tie against Billingshurst if they can overcome Chipstead.
