Lavant won the Charity Cup at Arundel Football Club Thursday Evening. In a final where all three goals were headers.

The Claremont took an early lead with Chris Williams heading the opener. Then later in the half Barry McCoy headed the equaliser, as it remained all level at one-one going into half time.

The second half saw both sides struggle to make their chances count and break the deadlock. But with seven minutes remaining Gary Jefkins, on his birthday met a Paul Cooper corner kick, heading into the corner of the Claremont goal, giving Lavant the lead for the first time in the match.

The Claremont’s urgent response eventually came to nothing as Lavant saw out the final minutes of the game to win the Charity Cup.
