AFC Hornchurch have announced that a planned friendly with West Ham next week has been cancelled.
On their official website Hornchurch released a statement saying “Due to an oversight on the part of West Ham next Tuesday’s friendly has been cancelled”
Hornchurch had previously published an announcement suggesting they would play a West Ham XI on Tuesday 4th August at 7.45pm.
However a West Ham insider has told Claret and Hugh this morning “They announced on their website before any agreement was made so it’s wrong of them to say that!”
With West Ham playing a pre season friendly against Werder Bremen this Sunday at the Boleyn Ground and the return leg in Romania against FC Astra on Thursday it did seem strange that West Ham would be willing to squeeze in another pointless friendly with the opening Premier League game against Arsenal just 8 days away.
