Saturday 5th March: Humber Premier League –
Hornsea Town 1 – 5 Crown FC (Chris Walker)
Town lost their last home game of the season to title contenders Crown FC. After taking a deserved 1-0 lead the lads imploded on themselves handing Crown 3 simple goals and ultimately walking away with no points at this crucial time of the season.
Saturday 12th March: Humber Premier League –
Goole United 5 – 1 Hornsea Town (Chris Walker)
Playing the better part of 70 minutes with 10 men the Seasiders suffer another heavy blow to their survival hopes. A sub standard first half was followed by a hard-working much improved second but it was too little to late. With 4 games left to play the lads will need to forget recent form and aim for a near maximum points total.
Saturday March 19th: Humber Premier League-
East Riding Rangers 2 – 1 Hornsea Town (Sam Baldwin)
In a very close fought game the Seasiders fell to a narrow defeat away at East Riding Rangers.
A well contested game ended with the hosts edging it but Town will head into next week knowing if they play in the same manner, 3 points could well be theirs.

Chalk Lane 2 – 4 Hornsea Town.
(Ben Leyland, Jez Longley, Lewis Reeve(2)) Saturday 6th February was just what the doctor ordered as Town ended their run of defeats in January with a much needed win on the road! The result brought the lads off the foot of the table and has given them a chance in the fight to stay in the highest tier of amateur football. Humber Premier League-
Driffield Evening Institute 2 – 2 Hornsea Town.
(Jordan Holmes, Jez Longley) Town followed up that impressive win with a battling point away at Driffield on Saturday 13th February . On a difficult playing surface the football was certainly not the prettiest and the game could have gone either way. In the end the points were shared when the saviour Jesus (Longley), acrobatically equalised with a last minute over head kick. Humber Premier League-
Hornsea Town 1 – 5 Bridlington Sports Club.
Saturday 20th February was a disappointing day all round for Town as what seemed to be a good run of form, ended dramatically. The Seasiders looked comfortable early in the game, playing some great football and even took a 1-0 lead. It only took Bridlington one minute to equalise though and In the second half Town had a man sent off and collapsed to an emphatic defeat in what was an important game in their season.

Email (Press Officer): [email protected] Tanton Cup The main topic of discussion at the Annual General Meeting of the competition held on Monday 7th March at Leven Sports Club was the future and format of the competition. The Tanton Cup – or to give it its full title ‘The Hornsea and District Hospital War Memorial Challenge Cup’ presented by PC Tanton Esq. in 1922 is the longest running cup competition of its like in the East Riding of Yorkshire under the East Riding County Football Association. However, with several local villages no longer able to sustain running a Saturday team, (the latest being Aldborough and North Frodingham) it was agreed after much discussion among the Club representatives that the 12 teams entering be divided into four leagues of three teams. The winning team from each league moving into the semi-finals. This means that each competing team will be guaranteed two fixtures each.
