Hastings headline busy night

Five of the area’s senior football clubs are in action tonight (Tuesday) with Hastings United topping the bill.

After having the weekend off as a result of their early FA Cup exit, United travel to Billericay Town in the Ryman League Premier Division.

Jason Hopkinson’s side lies in 14th place with 10 points from nine matches, the last two which ended in draws against Harrow Borough and bottom-of-the-table Leatherhead.

Billericay are going well in sixth with 18 points from nine outings. The Essex club has won six of its last seven games in all competitions and has lost to only Hopkinson’s old team Lewes this season.

Elsewhere tonight, Westfield will hope to continue their four-match winning run away to second-placed Hailsham Town in Sussex County League Division Two.

In round two of the Sussex RUR Charity Cup, Bexhill United will entertain St Francis Rangers, Rye United will travel to Ringmer and Sidley United will make the journey to Southwick.

All matches will kick-off at 7.45pm. Match summaries will appear on this website tomorrow and full reports will be in Friday’s Observers.
