Weather hits Sussex sport - again

BOGNOR’S Ryman premier clash with Billericay was the highest-profile victim of the latest downpours in soggy Sussex.

The Nyewood Lane pitch was declared unfit on Saturday morning - a blow to the team, who were out to secure their sixth straight win against the visitors from Essex.

The Rocks will try again on Tuesday night when Eastbourne Utd AFC are due to visit in the Sussex Senior Cup.

The Sussex League programme appeared to have fared better although Midhurst were among teams who had matches postponed while Chichester City’s pitch was in no state to stage their match against Littlehampton.

Selsey’s match at home to Worthing United is ON though.

In the rugby world, Chichester’s home clash with Cobham in London one south was ON but Bognor again fell victim to a waterlogged pitch.
