9 April 2019

Albion's under-23s played Bognor Regis Town in a pre-season friendly back in July.

Brighton & Hove Albion’s under-23s will look to reach the final of the Sussex Senior Cup when they play Bognor Regis Town in the semi-finals at Culver Road this evening, kick-off 7.15pm.

Simon Rusk’s team have won the competition two seasons running, after beating Sky Bet League Two opponents Crawley Town on both occasions at the Amex Stadium.

The Seagulls have beaten Lewes, Hastings United and Eastbourne Town en route to the final four of the competition, but the Rocks will be looking to reach their first final since their 2014 defeat to Peacehaven & Telscombe.

Bognor also reached the final in 2013 but lost 4-0 against the Seagulls, adding to their five defeats in the final of the competition since their cup success back in 1987.

The Rocks progressed past Seaford Town, Three Bridges and East Grinstead Town to set up tonight’s semi-final against the Seagulls, and the winners will meet Burgess Hill Town in the final.

After tonight’s match at Culver Road, Rusk’s team will quickly turn their attention to Monday’s top-of-the-table clash against Everton at Goodison Park, where a huge step will be taken in the race for the Premier League 2 Division 1 title.
