Horsham FC to open season at home – Ryman South fixtures in full

Horsham FC will begin life in Division One South with a home match against Corinthian Casuals on Saturday August 18.

The Hornets then go to Eastbourne Town four days later in the league (Wednesday, August 22), before their FA Cup Preliminary Round match against either Horsham YMCA or Raynes Park Vale at Gorings Mead on the Saturday, August 25.

Other stand-out fixtures include Ryman League new boys Three Bridges at home on Saturday December 1, Burgess Hill Town at home on December 15 and a trip to familiar stomping ground Woodside Road on Boxing Day to play Worthing.

Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated fixture though will be on New Year’s Day when former manager John Maggs will bring his Crawley Down side to Gorings Mead for a match which is sure to spark plenty of local interest.

Hornets looking forward to visiting Maidstone Utd’s new Gallagher Stadium will have to wait until the very last fixture of the 2012/13 season with the sides due to meet on Saturday April 27.
