Westfield and Bexhill United will battle it out for a local senior football trophy tonight (Wednesday).

The Sussex County Football League Division Two neighbours will go head-to-head in the Hastings & District FA Senior Cup final at Little Common Recreation Ground. Kick-off is 7.15pm.

The league table and results between the two clubs this season would suggest a close contest lies in store between the only two entrants in the local competition this season.

The teams fought out a goalless draw at The Parish Field in September before Westfield - who are one place and four points below Bexhill - clinched a 1-0 victory at The Polegrove in mid-March, Gordon Cuddington scoring the only goal.

Westfield have had a number of injuries to contend with lately, yet still managed to pick up seven points from a possible nine - scoring 12 goals in the process - prior to a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of table-topping Eastbourne United AFC on Easter Monday.

Bexhill reached the Sussex Division Two Challenge Cup final eight days ago, but availability issues meant they were only able to name one substitute in their single goal loss to Little Common two days ago.
