The new season’s National League South fixtures are out – and Worthing and Eastbourne Borough fans can start to plan their itineraries. Worthing will begin with three straight away games while the Sports’ opener is in front of the Priory Lane faithful.

Both Sussex sides will be bidding to be in the title and play-off mix when the new season begins on Saturday, August 10.

At Worthing, with groundworks ongoing at the Sussex Transport Community Stadium in preparation for a new North Stand, the club were granted permission by the FA to play their first three matches away from home to allow time for the works to be completed.
