Weekend Sporting Report

Once again, the weather badly affected the weekend’s local football programme

AFC Uckfield Town’s scheduled home clash with league leaders Crawley Down Gatwick was one of many postponements due to a frozen pitch.  Uckfield will try again tomorrow evening when they host Eastbourne Town – kick-off at the Oaks is at 7.30 pm.


Meanwhile, Crowborough Athletic’s recent run of good form came to an end with a three-two defeat by Lingfield.


In games in the Mid Sussex League that survived the weather, Ridgewood lost by the only goal at Oxted and District.  Fletching beat Portslade Athletic three-one at the Uckfield All-weather pitch, while Maresfield went down five-three at AFC Ringmer’s fourth team.


Elsewhere, in cup competitions, Jarvis Brook beat Ditchling five-one.  Nutley were four-one winners over Southgate United, and Plumpton Athletic won five-three at East Grinstead’s third team.


In local rugby, Uckfield remarkably repeated their one-point victory at Crawley a fortnight ago, as they edged home by 27 points to 26 when the two teams met again at Hempstead Fields on Saturday.


Elsewhere, Crowborough’s home game with Bromley was postponed.
