Hornets boss pleased with player reaction


NEW Horsham manager Justin Luchford hopes to have a large number of the current squad report for pre-season training.

Luchford introduced himself to and held talks with Hornets players last night (Tuesday), and is hopeful of a positive reaction to his arrival.

“I was pleased with the reaction of the players, they were certainly there to listen,” former Faversham Town boss Luchford said.

“Some players have been there a long time, it’s a fresh start and some are looking forward to it.

“There is nothing concrete, but we didn’t expect there to be.”

The fears of a player exodus in the immediate aftermath of John Maggs’ departure have not yet materialised, with Ben Andrews the one player definitely gone, for Tonbridge.
