Last night Lavant Sunday’s won the Shuker Cup at Arundel Football Club beating Southbourne Sports emphatically four-nil on the night.
Lavant took an early lead with Paul Cooper scoring from a well taken free-kick with only minutes on the clock.
They then went on to dominate much of the first half as Southbourne struggled to get a real foothold in the game after conceding the early goal. Then in the latter stages of the first half Lavant further increased their lead as Jason Houghton headed home, ensuring they now went into the break well in control of the cup final.
The second half saw Southbourne try in vain to get back into the game but they rarely able to threatened Lavants’s goal. It was that man Cooper that sealed the victory for Lavant scoring his second from another ustoppable free-kick just outside the area and then claiming his hat-trick, scoring from the penalty spot in the latter part of the game.
This victory ensured Manager Stuart Eastwoods’ Sunday squad won the double claiming the Shuker Cup and Division II Cup, a great result especially as this is our Centenary Season.
