Newhaven’s fixtures for the remainder of the 2020/21 season have been reworked by the Southern Combination Football League (SCFL), as football nears it’s hopeful resumption after the latest Government lockdown.
Home league fixtures against Broadbridge Heath, Pagham and Horsham YMCA, as well as trips to Hassocks and Crawley Down Gatwick, were all postponed due to the lockdown, and the SCFL have re-jigged fixtures to help with reducing travel on midweek evenings.
The SCFL Premier Division is set to resume on Tuesday 8th December, with the Dockers seemingly not benefitting from the new travel-reduced fixtures as they face the long journey north to Lingfield to get their league campaign going again.
The season has also been extended by a week and will now finish on Saturday 15th May. The Dockers now welcome Broadbridge Heath to the Trafalgar Ground on the final day, making it three home fixtures in a row to end the season.
The FA have also released dates for the restart of the Buildbase FA Vase, with Newhaven set to return to action with the visit of Hellenic League Premier Division side Binfield to the Trafalgar Ground in the Second Round on Saturday 5th December.
