Weekend Sporting Report

AFC Uckfield Town’s home match with Hassocks was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at the Oaks.

The persistent rain also played havoc with the minor league programme. Only Newick of our main local teams survived the weather – they drew four-all at Eastbourne Rangers Reserves.

In the Isthmian Premier Division, there was an excellent result for Lewes, who moved up to third place after a four-one victory at Enfield Town. In the third round of the FA Cup, Brighton and Hove Albion came from behind to win two-one at West Bromwich after extra time.

The Seagulls have been drawn away to Tottenham in the next round.

Brighton’s ladies team had a day to forget yesterday after crashing to a six-nil defeat at home to Manchester City in the Women’s Super League.
