Due to an opposition cancellation, Hove's first pre-season game has been rearranged as an intra squad fixture. Two mixed Hove teams will compete.
The club and bar will be open with Noah Fest running simultaneously to the first team match. This event is to raise funds for the rehabilitation of young player Noah Rees. On May 11th 2019 Noah’s world changed dramatically. Noah has had an accident that has resulted in life changing brain injuries. This fund is aimed at raising money to pay for therapies that will maximise Noah's rehabilitation. Please come down to support this fantastic cause, or if you're not able to come down please see the GoFundMe link here.
