  • Bexhill United’s game away to Sidlesham postponed
  • Little Common’s visit from Midhurst & Easebourne also off
  • Westfield’s match at home to Alfold postponed too
  • East Sussex League programme decimated by weather
  • Hastings United’s match at home to Dorking Wanderers set to go ahead

The football matches involving Bexhill United, Little Common and Westfield today (Saturday) have been postponed.

Bexhill’s game away to Sidlesham in Macron Store Southern Combination Football League Division One has been called-off due to a waterlogged pitch after all the rain of the past week.

Common’s scheduled visit from Midhurst & Easebourne in the same division will also not be going ahead, although the reason listed is a bereavement. Common chairman Ken Cherry passed away aged 81 on Thursday night.

Westfield’s match at home to Alfold in Southern Combination Division Two is off as well, due to a waterlogged pitch. Westfield’s reserve team fixture at Saltdean United has been postponed too.

Hastings United’s visit from Dorking Wanderers in Ryman Football League Division One South, however, is set to go ahead. Kick-off at The Pilot Field is 3pm.

As expected, the Macron East Sussex Football League programme has been virtually decimated by the weather. See the full list below.
