For the first time this year, the area’s senior football clubs are all set to be in action on the same Saturday.

Today’s matches involving Hastings United, Bexhill United and Little Common have all got the green light, although Westfield’s game away to Ifield Galaxy at intermediate level has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Hastings are at home to Tooting & Mitcham United in Ryman Football League Division One South, hoping to pick up three more points in their pursuit of a play-off place. Kick-off at The Pilot Field is 3pm.

Bexhill are making the long trip to Selsey for a 2pm kick-off in Macron Store Southern Combination Football League Division One, while in the same division, Little Common will take on Sidlesham in a home game to be played on the 3G pitch at Worthing FC (kick-off 3pm).

It will be the first time Common have played a league fixture since the festive derby away to Bexhill on December 28 and the first time they have played on a Saturday since December 19.

Some of the day’s Macron East Sussex Football League programme has been affected, but quite a few fixtures are on course to be played. For the full list, visit http://www.esfl.org.uk/pages/fixturesandresults.html

In today’s other local sport, Hastings & Bexhill Rugby Club will host Southwark Lancers (kick-off 2.30pm) and South Saxons will continue their Sussex Open Hockey League Division One title bid with a visit from St Francis (push-back 1.30pm).
