PROMOTION-CHASING Hullbridge Sports cannot wait to return to Essex Senior League action tomorrow.

Sports, who are second in the standings, welcome 10th-placed Sawbridgeworth Town to the Ryan’s Heating Stadium.

And, having suffered a 5-1 defeat to Hoddesdon Town in the Errington Challenge Cup last week, boss Darren Manning is looking to start 2019 with a win.

“We can’t wait to get back in the routine of regular football,” said Manning.

“All of the time off has killed our momentum and that showed at Hoddesdon.”
