Chichester City's Sussex Senior Cup clash at home to Brighton U23s was one of the first fixtures to be called off.

Chi tweeted: After a pitch inspection and more bad weather forecast, tonight’s match against @OfficialBHAFC has been postponed. Tickets purchased by supporters will be valid for the rearranged fixture. Those wanting a refund should contact [email protected]"

Quickly following were four other games to go the same way - Saltdean v Eastbourne Borough, another Sussex Senior Cup tie; Godalming v Pagham, called off after an afternoon pitch inspection, Bognor-Corinthians in the Isthmian premier, which also fell, plus Alfold v Littlehampton in the SCFL.

Steyning v Crawley Down Gatwick - on a 3G pitch - was still on.
