Albion's players celebrate scoring against Hastings United in the last round.

Albion booked their place in round three after edging out a five-goal thriller away at Hastings United back in November when Kacper Lopata, Stefan Vukoje and Bojan Radulovic were on target.

Like Hastings, the Hillians also play in the Bet Victor Isthmian League south-east division and they advanced to the third round after a thrilling 6-3 victory over East Grinstead Town.

This is the third attempt at playing the game, which was postponed twice before Christmas due to a waterlogged pitch. The winners will be away to Bognor Regis Town in the quarter-finals.

A familiar face…

Burgess Hill are managed by former Albion women’s first-team manager Jay Lovett.

The former Plymouth Argyle, Crawley Town and Brentford defender spent a season in charge of the Seagulls in 2012/13, leading them to a fourth-place finish in the Premier League Southern Division table.
