Weekend Sports Preview by David Eggleston

In tomorrow’s local cricket, bottom-of-the-table Uckfield will be looking to boost their chances of avoiding relegation with a victory at Bells Yew Green’s second team.

Elsewhere in the Sussex Cricket League, second-placed Buxted Park continue their promotion push as they host Hailsham.  Isfield entertain Lewes Priory, while Newick go to Hellingly and Fletching visit Laughton.  And there are also away matches this week for Maresfield, Blackboys and Nutley.

Meanwhile, Sussex’s county team begin a new Championship match tomorrow, as they travel to Old Trafford to face Lancashire.

Among the weekend’s local bowls fixtures, Uckfield host Woodingdean on Sunday afternoon.

In speedway, the Eastbourne Eagles head to Sheffield on Sunday in the Championship.

And finally, football is back, as AFC Uckfield Town begin their pre-season friendly programme tomorrow afternoon, when they visit Southwick.  In other friendlies, Lewes are at home to FC United of Manchester, and Brighton and Hove Albion finish off their summer training camp in Austria with a friendly tomorrow against FC Liefering.
