Newhaven’s league fixtures for the remainder of the 2020/21 season have now been released by the Southern Combination Football League.
Only September’s fixtures were released before the season started due to the leagues at Steps 1-4 beginning at later dates. But the fixtures for October 2020 to May 2021 have now followed, with the Dockers ending the season with back-to-back home games.
Notable dates in the calendar see Newhaven travelling to Peacehaven on Boxing Day (Saturday 26th December), before hosting the return fixture at the Trafalgar Ground on Easter Monday (5th April).
The last fixture of 2020 will see Newhaven welcome Langney Wanderers to the Trafalgar Ground on Monday 28th December.
Some bizarre scheduling will see the Dockers face away games in six of their first seven fixtures of 2021, with their first match of the new year being at Eastbourne United on Saturday 2nd January. This match is followed by trips to Lingfield, Loxwood and Broadbridge Heath, before finally returning to the Trafalgar Ground to host Hassocks on Saturday 30th January.
Newhaven will at least have the appeal of home comforts for their final two fixtures of the season when they host Lingfield (Saturday 1st May) and Loxwood (Saturday 8th May) to conclude the year.
As always, fixtures will be subject to change.
