Hastings United’s footballers have endured yet another midweek postponement.

United’s scheduled trip to Molesey in Ryman Football League Division One South tonight (Tuesday) has been called-off due to a waterlogged pitch.

It’s the second time the match has been postponed since Christmas and the fifth Tuesday night call-off United have experienced in the same period, all of them away from home.

As a result of that, United have midweek games scheduled for every week until well into next month so the earliest the match is likely to be played is March 15.

Ninth-placed United are five points and four positions outside the play-offs at present, although they do have the advantage of between two and five games in hand on every other club in the division.

United are running a coach to their next game at Walton & Hersham on Saturday, departing The Pilot Field at 11.30am for a 3pm kick-off. The cost is £12 for adults, with a £2 discount for supporters’ club members, and £5 for under-18s. Call Dave Russell on 07970 332270 or email davidrussell881@hotmail.co.uk to save a place.
