Weather decimates football

The wet weather of the last few days has wiped out much of the local football programme today (Saturday).

Just one senior fixture survives and that’s the Sussex County League Division Two clash between Westfield and Mile Oak. Kick-off at The Parish Field is 2pm.

Among the casualties are Hastings United’s trip to Wealdstone in the Premier Division of the Ryman League, and the Sussex Division One games involving Rye United and Shoreham, and Sidley United and East Grinstead Town.

Also off is Bexhill United’s Division Two Challenge Cup quarter-final away to Rustington and Little Common’s game at Littlehampton Town in Division Two.

The Reserve Section (East) encounter between Bexhill United and Rye United is still on, but the derby between Little Common and Sidley United in the same division is off.
