After defeats to Sidley in the league and East Grinstead Town in the Sussex Senior Cup, Adie Girdler’s side had hoped to get back to winning ways.

Girdler told the Observer: “It was frustrating. We’ve had a bad couple of results where we have lost a bit of match fitness.

“We want to get the momentum going. We’ll concentrate on Hailsham now, where we go on Saturday.”

Girdler has swooped to add to his squad, with Lee Mullen returning to the club. Girdler said: “Lee is a great addition to the squad. He can play centre-half or centre-midfield.”

Full-back Timmy Haruna and fellow defender Tom Broadbent are doubts for Saturday. Winger Adrian Brockway looks like missing outbecause of his persistent ankle problem.

Two sides who did beat the weather were Pagham, who lost their top-three clash at Three Bridges 2-0, and Bosham, who beat Broadbridge Heath 3-2 in the Division Three Cup.
