Like a lot of non-league football over the weekend Burgess Hill Town suffered two postponements last week.

The Hillians were due to host Bognor Regis Town on Saturday but it fell victim to the heavy rain with the match referee calling it off in the morning despite a small group of volunteers heading down there to try and clear the surface water.

That game looks set to be played on Wednesday, March 2 with both clubs agreeing on the date but are just waiting for confirmation from the Ryman League.

On Tuesday night Hill were due to travel to Broadbridge Heath but just as before Christmas, the weather had other ideas.

As this was the second time the game has been called off at Broadbridge Heath the game has now been switched and will be played at The Green Elephants Stadium next Wednesday (13th) with a 7:30pm kick-off.

The club have reduced the admission prices for the game and they are adults £6, senior citizens £4 and under-18s as usual free.

Joe Keehan’s goal against Canvey Island currently leads the way in the vote for the December goal of the month. To view the choices and vote go to www.bhtfc.co.uk
