Hastings United's game at home to Whyteleafe this afternoon will go ahead despite all the recent rain

Hastings United’s game at home to Whyteleafe this afternoon (Saturday) is set to go ahead.

The Pilot Field pitch has passed an inspection despite all the rain of the past 36 hours and the Ryman Football League Division One South fixture will kick-off at 3pm.

Elsewhere, however, much of today’s scheduled football has been affected. Bexhill United’s trip to Oakwood in Macron Store Sussex County Football League Division Two has been postponed for a third time this season and Westfield’s scheduled visit from Mile Oak in the same division is also off.

The reserve team game between Little Common and Westfield is another casualty, while much of the Macron East Sussex Football League programme has also succumbed to the weather. See the full list below.
