Exciting start for Horsham away at Chichester to kick off new season

Sussex derby as an opener

The league fixtures have been announced for the 2019/20 season and following promotion into London 1 South, which is the highest level the club has ever played, Horsham have the opportunity to rekindle an old rivalry by travelling in their first game to Chichester on 7 September, a fixture that has not been played for over 20 years.

Horsham then host Beckenham, the other promoted side from London 2 South East, who did the double over the Green and Whites last season, followed by a trip to HAC (Honourable Artillery Company) based in the City of London, who have had a lateral transfer from London 1 North, due to promotions and relegations around them.

September is then completed by hosting Cobham which is believed to be the first competitive fixture between the clubs despite being just the short journey over the border into Surrey.

Richard Ordidge, Horsham’s Vice Chairman said: “We will be facing a lot of the clubs for the first time, so this is very much a journey into the unknown, but given the way we finished the last campaign we are optimistic about our prospects and carrying this form into the new season.”

Pre-season friendlies have been arranged against Brighton, Haywards Heath and Worthing Raiders starting on 17 August.
