Pre-season preview: v Newhaven

By Gary Brigden

The first team are back in action this weekend when they host Newhaven in their latest pre-season friendly.

Newhaven friendlies have become a regular feature of our pre-season programme, as we have met every pre-season since the 2014/15 season, with either Newhaven coming up to us, or us popping down there.

Results have generally seen us have the better of things, picking up three wins, with there being one draw and one win for Newhaven.

Games are always good quality encounters as Newhaven are traditionally one of the stronger sides in the Southern Combination Premier division. Last season they finished in 4th spot, behind third placed Eastbourne Town on goals scored, both sides having 83 points and a +49 goal difference, and they were only two points off runners up.

In their ranks is the prolific Lee Robinson who notched 45 goals last season to finish the league top scorer.

Admission is £7 for adults; £4 for concessions; £2 for teenagers and free for U12's.

We appreciate people may have issues over the pricing, but the cost of hosting a fixture doesn't change just because it is a friendly.
