Pre-Season 2018-19

Lavant FC kick-off their pre-season schedule on the 5th July in preparation for the new season starting in September.

Lavant again this season have two sides on Saturdays playing up to intermediate level in the local West Sussex League, Premier Division and Championship respectfully and we are looking for new players to strengthen both sides.

The philosophy adopted at the club is that the process of selection for all teams starts at pre-season. We welcome back all our current players as well as inviting any new players to come along and train together and compete openly for a place in one of our sides during the pre-season. 

Pre-Season training is held weekly, every Thursday night initially on the top pitch Raughmere Park, starting 6.30 pm prompt. Training will stay here until early September.

In August we start playing friendlies which will be made up of a combination of both teams giving everyone a chance to make their claim for first team football based on ability

August Schedule is as follows:

Saturday 4th Lavant vs Fleetlands FC 2.00 pm KO

Thursday 9th Lavant vs Littlehampton FC 7.00 pm KO

Saturday 11th Angmering Seniors vs Lavant 2.00 pm KO 

Thursday 16th Lavant vs Elmer 6.30pm KO

Saturday 18th Lavant vs Horndean 2.00pm KO

Thursday 25th Lavant vs Southwater 2.00 pm KO

The schedule maybe subject to change, plus additional friendlies added and these will be posted on the website as soon as they are all confirmed.

During the Season:

From September training reverts back to one session a week on Thursday nights and starting the 13th September, training also transfers to the 3G All Weather pitch at Midhurst Rother College 7.30pm to 9.00pm.

Training will remain at the the college until the end of March 2019, after which we revert back to Lavant.
