Hailsham Town face four matches in seven days as they continue their bid to avoid relegation from the Southern Combination Premier.

Ian Stevens’ men have played just 23 games so far this season - the least in the Premier - due to waterlogged pitches.

Tomorrow (Saturday, 3pm) they travel to fellow strugglers East Preston and then they welcome basement side St Francis to the Beaconsfield on Tuesday. Eastbourne United are next up at the Beaconsfield on Thursday and then they travel to Horsham YMCA the following Saturday.

Hailsham are third from bottom in the table with just nine points following their heavy midweek home defeat against Wick and Barnham. The Stringers were thrashed 6-1 thanks largely to five goals from Wick’s Danny Simmonds. Matthew Noble was also on target for the visitors while striker Danny Leach scored a late consolation for Hailsham.

Tomorrow’s opponents East Preston are second from bottom and also have nine points but they have played seven games more than the struggling Stringers.
