Little Common’s game at home to Crawley Down Gatwick in Macron Store Southern Combination Football League Division One has been declared on after the Recreation Ground pitch passed a morning inspection.

Elsewhere, Bexhill United are at home to Steyning Town in the same division and Westfield will host Hurstpierpoint in Division Two. That match will kick-off at 2pm, while Bexhill’s and Common’s will start at 3pm.

Westfield’s reserve team game away to Ringmer has just been postponed, however, due to a waterlogged pitch. Some of today’s Macron East Sussex Football League programme has been affected by the weather, but most matches have got the green light.

Hastings United are without a fixture today as scheduled opponents Molesey are in FA Trophy action. Their next outing will be at home to Corinthian-Casuals on Tuesday night.
