Newhaven will give their game at home to Bexhill United tomorrow every chance of going ahead by waiting until tomorrow before making a decision on whether the snow and big freeze has adversely affected their pitch.

Lewes FC’s home league game with Margate and Peacehaven’s away FA Vase match at Larkhall Athletic have already been called off due to the heavy snow and/or freezing temperatures.

Indeed, ALL games in the Ryman Premier Division, the league Lewes play in, have now been called off.

The Ryman League website reports: “All but eight of tomorrow’s fixtures have already been postponed because of frozen or snowbound pitches, including the entire Ryman Premier programme.

“There are inspections in the morning for the following Ryman South matches: Crawley Down v Chipstead, Dulwich v Maidstone, Eastbourne (Town) v Tooting, Ramsgate v Leatherhead, Walton Casuals v Horsham and Worthing v Walton & Hersham. The other five games have been postponed.”

But the Newhaven Dockers will wait overnight before making a decision on their Sussex County League Division Two match.

The club said: “Newhaven will wait until Saturday morning to decide whether the game against @Bexhill_Pirates will go ahead. (There will be a) 10am pitch inspection.”
