LavantFC Team Champions Pic2 140312 webpic

At the start of the season faced with the exodus of a number of players, plus the problems caused by the visiting travellers which completely wrecked our pre-season programme, we set ourselves just the one goal, that of survival in Division I.

But it was not long before the new look team started to gel and the results started to roll in.

Unbeaten in the league going into the New Year, our focus changed to that of gaining promotion to the West Sussex Premier league.

Then in the final two months of the season we set ourselves three goals.  Firstly promotion, secondly to win the league and thirdly finish the season unbeaten and the mission was accomplished on all three fronts on the 14th April when Lavant convincingly beat local rivals East Dean 4-1 in their final game of the season.

Lavant were in fact only one of two teams to go unbeaten in their league out of a total of one hundred and fourteen teams that played in the West Sussex football league. A truly great achievement for the village football team
