On a very sad note, the football club would like to offer their condolences to Jan and her daughter Kay after the sad loss of John Squires following a short illness in August.

John was a big supporter of the football club and he played for Lavant in the past for many a season, as did his father before him.

In recent times he would turn out to watch the first and reserve team every week without fail regardless of the weather at Lavant with his great friend Richard Sims.  They both would let Dave Parker and myself know each week just how they felt the teams and Lavant overall were performing.

Every season John and Jan generously sponsored the club and more recently provided the home kit for the Reserves to mark our Centenary Season.

He will be sadly missed every Saturday, but not forgotten.

As a mark of respect to John there will a minutes silence before the match at this Saturday’s game at home to Lancing.

John’s funeral is on the 17th September at 11.00am at the Chichester Crematorium.
