Horsham’s early exit from the FA Cup has prompted them to bring forward their Ryman League South Division match against Guernsey to this Saturday.

The Hornets were due to have faced Hastings United in the league, but the East Sussex club’s involvement in the FA Cup meant they would have had a free weekend before the Channel Islanders agreed a switch.

The match, sponsored by Knights247 Cars, will also see supporters receive a free bottle of Yazoo milkshake thanks to the generosity of the Horsham branch of Friesland Campina UK.

Last season Horsham did the double over Guernsey, winning 1-0 away, before enjoying a tremendous 6-2 success at Goring’s Mead.

Lewis Hamilton is expected to return, but Ross Morley is away, while Max Miller is a still week away with injury.
