Lavant continued their run of impressive performances taking all three points from Newtown Villain Division 2 of the West Sussex League.

Lavant started cautiously and sat back, allowing Newtown to exert pressure, and with only three minutes gone Newtown were almost ahead, but Martin Pullen managed to get a hand to a goal-bound 35 yard drive.

Lavant started to come back into the game and on ten minutes Ben Thomas came close to opening the scoring with an effort that was just wide.

With six minutes to half time, Lavant were unable to clear the ball to safety and Barry Roberts drove the ball home from the edge of the penalty area.

Four minutes after the break Lavant were level when Newtown failed to clear a corner and Andy Strange pounced on the edge of the box.

Strange then won the ball in midfield and played a delightful through ball to Robby Clackett who made no mistake for his 22nd goal of the season.

With five minutes remaining Andy Strange found himself one on one with the Newtown keeper but his lob fell wide.

Martin Pullen pulled off a great save late in the game to ensure Lavant of three valuable points.
