Games set to beat the weather
Today’s (Saturday’s) matches involving the area’s senior football clubs look set to go ahead despite the wintry weather.
Hastings United’s game away to Merstham in Ryman Football League Division One South is on after passing an 11am pitch inspection despite a light covering of snow earlier.
Bexhill United’s third versus second clash away to Wick & Barnham United in Macron Store Sussex County Football League Division Two has also been given the green light following an inspection.
In the same division, Westfield’s fixture away to Haywards Heath Town goes ahead, although the ground is soft and further rain will mean another inspection prior to kick-off. Little Common’s visit from leaders Worthing United is also on.
The majority of the day’s Macron East Sussex Football League encounters are also set to go ahead. See the full list below.
