ARUNDEL Football Club have a mouthwatering second round tie in the Sussex Senior Cup against holders Brighton & Hove Albion.

Mullets have been drawn away to The Seagulls and all of the games will take place on Tuesday November 26 or Wednesday November 27.

Arundel joint manager Simon Butler said: “It is a terrific draw and it is just what we needed.

“All the players will be looking to put themselves in the shop window for selection for the game as they will all want to play so, hopefully, that will pay dividends.

“We are all looking forward to it. It is not often you get to play a professional standard side. It will obviously be a tough game but it is really good for the club.”

Shoreham will also be hoping to produce a cup upset after being drawn at home to Conference South side Eastbourne Borough.

Mile Oak and Lancing have both been drawn against Ryman League Premier Division opposition. Oak will entertain Lewes and Lancers will travel to Bognor Regis.

Worthing will travel to fellow Ryman League South Division side Three Bridges, while a tasty local derby is in store between two County League sides as leaders East Preston will host Wick & Barnham.

Steyning Town will travel to Ryman League Peacehaven, if they overcome Hassocks in their first-round tie.
