After their exertions in two big cup matches over the past week, AFC Uckfield Town return to the ‘bread and butter’ of the Southern Combination League tomorrow.  But, they face another stern test, as they travel to second-in-the-table Horsham YMCA.

In local village football, Maresfield host Ditchling Reserves in the Mid Sussex League.  Elsewhere, all our other main local teams are involved in cup games.  Buxted entertain near neighbours Nutley.  Ridgewood are at home to Ardingly, whilst Fletching host Roffey’s third team, and Newick are away to Fairfield.

Lewes are in FA Trophy action tomorrow, as they welcome Merthyr Town in the second qualifying round.

Meanwhile, Brighton and Hove Albion will be aiming to bounce back from their defeat at Everton last weekend, as they visit second-from-bottom Cardiff in a match that kicks off at 12.30.

And in local rugby, Uckfield’s first team are without a fixture this weekend.
