Both Eastbourne Town’s and Eastbourne United’s Tuesday night Sussex Senior Cup games have been called off.

Town were due to travel to County League two side Loxwood for the third round clash while United were all set to welcome Bognor Regis to the Oval.

Town’s game was called off last night while United’s was postponed after a 1pm pitch inspection.

The pitch at the Oval was reported to be in good shape despite the recent bad weather but an area in front of the seated stand and standing water in the goalmouths made play impossible.

Town’s game has been re-arranged for Tuesday, January 29 and a new date for the United fixture is to be confirmed.
