Urchins leave it late for victory


Margate 1, AFC Hornchurch 2

URCHINS produced a performance of character to bounce back from Saturday’s opening day Ryman Premier League defeat by Lewes with a late, late win on the Kent coast on Tuesday.

Carl Rook has put the visitors ahead from the penalty spot on 27 minutes and it stayed like that until just after the hour when John Beales netted for Gate.


However, Hornchurch were not to be denied and a goal five minutes into added time by Ade Yusuff ensured they returned from Hartsdown Park with maximum points.
