Manning leads the praise for departing frontman, Hornsley

HULLBRIDGE SPORTS manager, Darren Manning, delivered his own tribute after it was announced that highly regarded frontman, Luke Hornsley, would be leaving the Lower Road club.

Hornsley hit a century of goals in 164 appearances for the Isthmian League North outfit, confirming his place as a firm favourite with the Hullbridge supporters.

The players’ next destination is unclear. However, his impact during two spells with the club was crystalised by boss, Manning; “Luke has been brilliant in my time at the club over his two spells,” he told Yellow Sport.

“His goal record speaks for itself and I can’t thank him enough for his contribution on and off the field during that time.

“I speak on behalf of the whole club when I wish him nothing but success in his next chapter.”
