Three of the area’s football clubs are due to be in Sussex Senior Cup action tonight (Tuesday).

Little Common are away to Crowborough Athletic, Westfield go to Haywards Heath Town and Rye United visit Oakwood in round one of the county knockout competition, weather permitting. Kick-off in all matches is 7.45pm.

Sussex County Football League Division Two high-flyers Common will be aiming to spring a surprise against a Crowborough side lying sixth in Division One. Common were beaten on penalties after a 3-3 draw between the clubs at the corresponding stage of last season’s competition.

Westfield will be eager to end a run of three straight defeats in an all-Sussex Division Two tie against Heath. Westfield are nine places and 15 points below their opponents in the league with two games in hand.

Division One side Rye will need to avoid any complacency against Division Two outfit Oakwood. Rye hammered the same opponents 8-0 in a Sussex RUR Charity Cup second round tie at The Salts on Saturday.

Although all games are set to go ahead at present, the heavy rain forecast for this afternoon is now falling. News of any postponements - should there be any - will appear on this website.
