Hastings United will take on Bognor Regis Town in the semi-finals of the Sussex Senior Cup.

The last four draw - made yesterday (Thursday) evening - handed the U’s a meeting with fellow Ryman Football Youth Premier Division club Bognor. The date and venue are yet to be arranged.

Bognor are 12th in the league, eight places and 13 points above United having played an extra game. The teams have met once so far this season and fought out a 1-1 draw at The Pilot Field during November.

United reached the last four with wins over Pagham (4-1), Peacehaven & Telscombe (2-1 after extra-time) and Crawley Town (3-0), while Bognor have beaten Selsey (5-0), Eastbourne United AFC (4-3) and Eastbourne Borough (3-1).

The other semi-final will see Brighton & Hove Albion or Three Bridges face Sussex County League title hopefuls East Preston, who upset Ryman Division One South side Eastbourne Town away from home in their quarter-final this week. Albion and Bridges are due to meet on March 19.
