Lavant needed to win in order to bolster their slim chances of staying in Division II of the West Sussex League.

Lavant started well when both Tom mason and Robby Clackett went agonizingly close.

On 25 minutes they took the lead after Robby Clackett chased down a long Lavant Kick which the Hunston keeper attempted to clear, only for the ball to rebound off Clackett’s posterior into the net.

Hunston upped their game, forcing a great finger tip save from Martin Pullen.

Lavant then missed a direct free-kick which Matt Hine drove over the bar.

A cross into the Lavant box was not properly cleared and somehow ended up in the back of the net right on half time.

Honston looped a high ball into the Lavant box which was easily put away from close range.

With five minutes remaining Hunston took advantage of one of their infrequent attacks breaking the Lavant defence to make it 3-1.

Team:  Martin Pullen, Tom Parker, Martin Ayers, Jon Strange, Matt Hine, Giles Weller, Andy Strange, Dave Maclean, Mark Richardson, Tom Mason, Robby Clackett.  Subs: Simon Blackman, Alan Sheppard.   Manager: Dave Kent.
