Hollington seek to secure runners-up finish in final home game

Hollington United Football Club will seek to secure a runners-up finish in its final home game of the season today (Saturday).

Saturday, 27th April 2019, 9:00 am

A draw or better against eighth-placed Rotherfield at Gibbons Field will ensure the Lions clinch second place in their maiden Mid Sussex League Premier Division season. Kick-off is 2pm.

Hollington have now been awarded the points for the game at home to Buxted on Saturday April 13 when the opposition failed to field a team.

Hollington’s last match, incidentally, is away to Sporting Lindfield on Saturday May 4.

Scott Price’s side has won 19 and drawn two of its 24 league fixtures to date, and prevailed 4-0 in September’s reverse fixture against Rotherfield.

The Sussex Intermediate Challenge Cup winners will be hoping that their lengthy injury list of earlier this week shortens somewhat in time for today’s clash.

Hollington will be mindful, though, that they have another big game on Tuesday night, when they will face Charlwood in the Mid Sussex Senior Charity Cup final at Hassocks FC.
