Albion are back at the Amex on Saturday.

The busy schedule kicks off on Tuesday with a match along the Sussex coast at The Pilot Field, as Albion take on Hastings United in the Sussex Senior Cup.

Tuesday 19th November: Hastings United v Albion under-23s, kick-off 7.45pm

Simon Rusk’s team begin their Sussex Senior Cup campaign against the high-flying Isthmian League South East side, who head into the match buoyed after a 3-1 win over Phoenix Sports Club on Saturday.

The tie was originally scheduled to take place a week earlier on 12th November, but was rearranged after Hastings had to play an FA Trophy replay against Whitehawk instead on that day.

For Rusk’s side, it will be their first match in 13 days, since the Trophy match away at Leyton Orient on 6th November. The two teams shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw, but Orient claimed the extra point on offer after winning the subsequent penalty shootout 4-2.

Albion reached the semi-finals of the Sussex Senior Cup last season, where they were beaten 5-1 by eventual winners, Bognor Regis Town.

Tickets will be available to purchase on the gate at The Pilot Field, and are priced at £8 for adults, £5 for concessions, while under-16s can gain free entry.
