This season saw Lavant newley promoted and playing for the first time for just over 10 years in Division I.  This proved to be a hard and testing season as the first team had to travell further a field and also play a number of new teams for the first time, all at intermediate level.  To their credit they battle hard for every point and by early April had ensured their survial in the league.  This was no mean achievement as this is the only league in West Sussex where three teams are relegated each season.
