The Blues were one of the first teams to have a game called off after FA Cup opponents Broadbirdge Heath withdrew after some of their players tested positive for Covid-19.

This was followed by the news Hollands and Blair refused to travel to Burgess Hill Town after the Hillians revealed they had players test positive.

But this will happen more and more according to new boss Cotton.

He said: "When you prepare through the week for the game and look forward to it to get competitive football started and it stops like that it’s very frustrating. I feel it’s something that could happen quite a few times this season so we better get used to it.

"I think everyone is trying their best at the moment and our club certainly is. With the times we are in it’s just something we might need to get used to and work with as the season goes on."

Haywards Heath Town kick off their league campaign by hosting local rivals East Grinstead Town on Saturday followed up by hosting Isthmian South Central side Hanwell Town in the FA Cup on Tuesday night.
