Bognor Regis Town 1, AFC Hornchurch 2
REECE Beckles-Richards made a dream debut for Hornchurch and helped his side to a vital victory at fellow Ryman premier strugglers Bognor.
Beckles-Rochards, who signed on loan from Woking in the week, took just 15 seconds to make his mark, chesting the ball into the path of Tom Davis to fire home from 20 yards.
Bognor recovered from the early blow and were level after 11 minutes when Ollie Pearce swept the ball in from close range.
The impetus was with the home side and Urchins keeper Sam Mott was busy, making several saves before Beckles-Richards made his second big impact, volleying home what proved to be the winner of 78 minutes.
In the closing stages Bognor applied plenty of pressure but Mott was equal to the task and capped his display with a fine save from Jake Thomson.
