Tuesday night see’s the Town cross the Town to The Oval for the Sussex Royal Ulster Rifles Charity Cup (RUR Cup) 3rd Round with Little Common.
This historical competition dates back to 1897 when the 1st Battalion of the (then) Royal Irish Rifles won the Sussex Senior Cup, Brighton Shield, Charity Cup and Vernon Wentworth Cup in the 1895–96 season and were recognised as ‘Sussex Champions’. The trophy was presented as a permanent memento of their achievement and to raise money for charity.
A third of the gate receipts go to the Sussex County F.A. Benevolent Fund for injured players.
