The U’s will contest the opening away fixture of their Ryman Football League Premier Division campaign against East Thurrock United.

Hastings kicked-off their programme with a single goal defeat at home to Wingate & Finchley on Saturday, Leon Smith scoring the only goal after half-an-hour.

East Thurrock - who pipped Wingate to the Division One North title last season - won by the same scoreline away to Tooting & Mitcham United thanks to an 84th minute goal from Kayan Kalipha. Kick-off is 7.45pm.
