Hornchurch suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to Bishop’s Stortford in their latest Isthmian Premier Division fixture. 

Frankie Merrifield scored five minutes after the break to hand Stortford their first win of the new season –meaning Urchins continue their rollercoaster start to the new campaign. 

They’ll be keen to bounce back when they host Margate on Tuesday evening. 

Haringey Borough also lost 1-0 to Corinthian Casuals in their latest fixture despite a good run of form recently. 

Haringey had quickly put opening day defeat to Kingstonian behind them, winning every match since to start the day in fourth.
