Player of the Year Michael Hunter wants to help Horsham move forward

Have your say

Horsham goalkeeper Michael Hunter thanked the fans for voting him Player of the Year after appearing in every game this season.

The popular stopper has completed his second season at Gorings Mead having joined following a County League title winning spell at Crawley Down.

Hunter said: “It’s been a season of a lot of highs and lows. I’d like to thank the fans for voting for me. I’ve had some bad appearances as well as the good ones.

“The fans have stuck with me through thick and thin and it’s made my season to get this from them all.

“I’ve appeared in every single game since I’ve joined the club. I’d like to keep it up although I’m going to miss the Brighton Charity Cup final as I’m away on holiday with the family - I do apologise!”

Hunter admitted it’s a case of once a Hornet, always a Hornet from his point of view.

He said: “I’ve loved it here from the moment John Maggs sent me here.

“Horsham was the first club I came to at Non-League level when I was 17 at Lewes. It’s a proper football club. I just hope we get back there (Ryman Premier) again.

“Everyone welcomed me with open arms when I turned up here. I got on with everyone here. I would need a big carrot to leave this club.

I want to take the club back to where it was. A new ground, is in the pipeline and other things are all needed for the club to move forward. I’d love to think I could be a part of it.”
