Weekend Sporting Preview

It’s the start of the new football season for AFC Uckfield Town tomorrow afternoon!

This is as the team begin their campaign in the Southern Combination League with a stern test against one of the title favourites Saltdean United.  The game at the Oaks kicks off at 3 pm. In pre-season friendlies tomorrow, Lewes make the short trip to Eastbourne Borough, while Brighton and Hove Albion go to Luton.

In local cricket, Uckfield Anderida entertain Dicker – play at the Victoria Ground begins at one o’clock.  In-form Buxted Park visit near neighbours Isfield.  Promotion-chasing Newick are at home to Ringmer, and there’s a tough match in prospect for Maresfield, who host top-of-the-table Tunbridge Wells’ third team.

There are also away fixtures this weekend for Fletching, Nutley and Blackboys. The Sussex Sharks will be aiming for back-to-back wins at the County Ground Hove to rekindle their Royal London One-Day Cup campaign.  Sussex face Kent today, followed by Gloucestershire on Sunday.

The Eastbourne Eagles speedway team are in action at the Arlington Stadium tomorrow evening, as they entertain Plymouth.  The meeting gets underway at 7.30pm.
