They have done it, Horsham have secured promotion to London 1 South - the highest level they have ever reached.

In a winner takes all play-off clash with Farnham at Hammerpond Road, the Green and Whites cruised to a 44-17 victory and with it sealed promotion.


A 76-12 win over Maidstone on the final day of the league season last Saturday clinched Horsham second place in London 2 South East and with it a place in the play-offs against London 2 South West runners-up Farnham.


And this afternoon, the Green and White continued a fabulous run of form in a thrilling encounter to clinch a historic promotion.
