The referee will decide whether or not Hastings United’s game this afternoon (New Year’s Day) is to go ahead.

The Ryman Football League Division One South fixture at home to Hythe Town hasn’t yet been called-off, but the rain is now falling heavily on top of all the wet weather we’ve had recently.

United groundsman Simon Rudkins wrote on social network site Twitter at 12:06pm: “Rain heavier last 15 mins some surface water now Forking will continue but decision on @hastingsufc @hythetownfc going ahead with match ref.”

A further tweet at 12:22pm read: “Rain even heavier now not looking good I’m afraid match ref hoping to be here at 1pm.”

Kick-off is scheduled to be at 3pm. Return to this website for further updates.

A number of other New Year’s Day fixtures around the county have succumbed to the latest band of wet weather, including the Skrill South clash between Whitehawk and Eastbourne Borough.
