Action from Hollington United's recent home game against AFC Ringmer

Having booked their place in the Sussex Intermediate Challenge Cup decider earlier this month, the Lions are now aiming to make it through to the Mid Sussex Senior Charity Cup final.

Hollington will visit Lindfield in the semi-finals tomorrow (Saturday, kick-off 1.30pm) for the right to play Charlwood or Copthorne in the final.

Hollington have played a game less than leaders Balcombe and one more than second-placed Cuckfield Rangers. Lindfield are 10 points adrift of the leading trio in fourth.

Hollington manager Scott Price said: “It’s the start of a run of games against the other three teams that make up the top four (excluding ourselves).

“A tough trip to Lindfield for another away game in another semi-final, which is incidentally our sixth semi-final in under three years since we’ve been at the club.

“My hardest job now will be to make sure the players are not focused on the Sussex Cup final and are fully committed to each game at a time.”

Hollington’s next home game is against Cuckfield on Saturday April 6.
