The locality’s four Sussex County League clubs are facing another Saturday afternoon without football.

Rye United’s scheduled visit from Worthing United in Division One has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, as has Bexhill United’s home game against Mile Oak, Little Common’s trip to Saltdean United and Westfield’s match at Haywards Heath Town in Division Two.

Hastings United’s match at home to Faversham Town in Ryman Football League Division One South is subject to an 11am pitch inspection. United groundsman Simon Rudkins wrote on social network site Twitter at 9am: “Pitch currently NOT playable but working on it and inspection at 11am.”

Today’s ADA East Sussex Football League programme has been virtually decimated by all the wet weather of the past few days.
