Welcome to the official website of Hythe Town FC
Hythe snatch all three points..........
Horsham 0 Hythe Town 1
Ryman League Division One (South)
Saturday 22nd April 2017
A 73rd minute Dean Grant goal was enough for Hythe Town to come home with three points in a 1-0 win at Horsham in the last game of the season on Saturday.
Both sides had an even share of the first half with Sam Adams having the first effort for the Cannons on two minutes as he hit a shot from 20 yards straight into the arms of Horsham keeper Josh Pelling. Within a minute the hosts forced a save from Hythe keeper Joe Mant as he tipped the ball round the post from Scott Kirkwood. Tom Lawley was denied on seven minutes with Craig Cloke clearing off the line from a lob by the Horsham striker.
Both sides were creating an equal share of the opportunities in the early part of the first half. Ben Wilson sent in a corner from the right which Cloke sliced wide and then at the other end James Thurgar flicked the ball onto Lewis Hyde who forced Mant to tip the ball over the bar. As the half progressed the more meaningful chances were coming for the visitors. On 20 minutes Wilson put through an accurate ball to Kieron Campbell who firstly stumbled but recovered to shoot just wide. This was followed quickly from a dangerous break from Alex Mulrooney-Skinner down the right which ended with a cross ball which Grant was unlucky not to convert. The favour was returned on the stroke of half-time as this time Grant fed the ball into Mulrooney-Skinner who could not quite get enough on the ball to re-direct it home.
The second half started slowly with limited action but it was Horsham who were first to threaten as Kirkwood drove the ball in from 20 yards only for the ball to be blocked by Mant and then another home attack saw Alex Duncan cross to Darren Boswell who headed over. However it was Hythe who began to take control as the half progressed. Campbell was first to have an attempt for the Cannons as he had a 25 yard shot deflected wide. Adams then hit a looping shot into the arms of Pelling.
The decisive moment of the half and the game came on 73 minutes as Campbell threaded the ball through to Grant who beat the offside trap moving in and slotting the ball neatly into the corner of the net to give Hythe all three points. There was only one clear chance five minutes from time as Boswell shot into the arms of Mant but there was little else to threaten Hythe’s lead.
The Cannons ended up in seventh place in the table and now must look forward to next season to push on.

End of Season Presentation Evening.............
Well, it has been a long old season with thankfully more highs than lows and all Reachfields regulars are invited to the clubhouse on SATURDAY APRIL 29TH FROM 7PM ONWARDS. There will be some presentations, a few words from key personnel, some music, and a chance to have a drink and recall some of the highlights with your fellow supporters, club officials and of course the players.
Who can forget the 5-0 FA Cup win against Sittingbourne, or the 6-1 and 8-1 results within four days of each other against Guernsey and Walton Casuals. Then there was the way we thrashed Conference side Bishop's Stortford in the third round of the FA Trophy and for away fans the moment we went 6-1 up against top side Corinthian Casuals. As the evening progresses, literally anything can happen and we fully expect to hear how we really should have beaten Welling United on any other day, as well as inviting Balcony One to give a lecture on the finer points of the English Language.
The theme of the evening is "Informal" and there will be no buffet provided, although people may bring their own food or order a pizza if they so wish. Not only is there no admission charge, but we will be needing to clear the beer cellar, so if there are excess stocks, prices could well be reduced from mid-evening.
PLEASE MAKE THE EFFORT TO COME ALONG AND SHOW THAT OUR CLUB IS TOGETHER AND READY FOR NEXT SEASON.
Clubhouse open-this Monday night
The bar will be opening on the "first Monday of each month" at 7pm -- Come down and enjoy a pint !!!!
