Add to that the appalling weather of the day and you'd come up with a good enough reason to stay at home, but anyone who made that decision missed a commanding performance by Peacehaven which saw them move back into the top three.
There was only one change to Saturday's line-up, with Ben Bowra replacing Wes Millis
, and Peacehaven made their intentions clear from the start. Within the first few minutes, Ashley Rees
' low drive into the 6 yard box caused panic in the home defence, and the ball was scrambled away for a corner.
Soon after, Owen Callaghan's effort from outside the box beat Tom Betts in the home goal but just dipped over the bar - but it wasn't long before Peacehaven were in front. Callaghan's low shot through a crowded area was parried out by Betts, and Ryan Bradley's pass was converted from close range by Ashley Rees
The home side were having trouble getting a foothold in the game, and Peacehaven soon doubled their lead. Ashley Rees
' cross was met by Owen Callaghan and he made no mistake to score his second in as many games.
Things could have got even worse for Uckfield when Scott Marshall's goal-bound long range effort was deflected over the bar, but having survived this they started to put some pressure on the away defence.
Craig Hall and Matt Hill
both cleared efforts off the line before Jake Buss produced a spectacular save from Andy McDowell's header on the stroke of half-time.
Carl Dunk was unlucky not to put the game beyond Uckfield with the first attack of the second half when his angled drive across the goal cannoned off the inside of the post and back into play, whilst at the other end McDowell again went close - but you sensed this was going to be Peacehaven's night.
On the hour Ryan Bradley confirmed this with a trademark goal. Running on to a through ball he only needed one touch before crashing the ball into the bottom corner, and created a huge mountain for Uckfield to climb.
There was no way back for the home side, and substitute Craig Bunch completed the scoring in the last minute in eye-catching fashion. Cutting in from the touchline, it appeared he was setting up a cross before his fierce drive across the goalmouth found it's way past Betts to complete a comprehensive victory.
