AFC Uckfield Town are looking to continue their excellent unbeaten record and consolidate their position at the top of the Southern Combination League.

They entertain Horsham YMCA on Saturday afternoon. Uckfield will be hoping for another big crowd for the match which kicks off at 3pm at the Oaks.

In the Mid Sussex League, Ridgewood host Hurstpierpoint, while Uckfield United are away at Burgess Hill Albion Reserves. Buxted are at home to Lindfield Reserves, Fletching host Portslade Athletic and there are also home fixtures for Nutley against Crawley United and for Newick, who take on Lancing United Reserves. Maresfield are away at Buxted Reserves.

It’s been a disappointing start to the new season for Lewes, with back-to-back defeats in league and cup. They’ll be hoping to get off the mark tomorrow when they welcome Essex side Brightlingsea Regent in the Isthmian Premier Division.

There’s also a big game on Saturday lunchtime for Brighton and Hove Albion, who will be aiming to continue their promising start with the visit of Manchester United to the Amex Stadium. Kick-off there is at 12:30pm.
