So far we have held two good pre-season sessions on the village green as we prepare for the challanges of the forcoming season.

It was great to see many of last seasons players back at the club as well as a number of new faces who are training with Lavant for the first time.

There is now only one more training session remaining in July, before we begin August with a mixture of our pre-season friendlies and training sessions all listed below.

The First team again are facing a hard and challanging season to further consolidate their position in the Premier league, hopefully pushing to do better than last season’s 6th place finish.

Whilst the Reserves this season have a fresh challange to gain promotion from Division IV South, with the aim of winning that league.

We are therefore still very keen to further strength both sides before we start this seasons league campaign and we are especially interested in attracting quality local players from around the Chichester, Bognor and local surrounding areas, that want to play regular football.

If you are interested then come along and take part in one of the training sessions.

The philosophy adopted at the club is one of welcoming new players and firstly integrating them into the club as a whole and then secondly inviting them to compete with every other player for a place in either squad.

Please Note:

For every training session please bring football boots/trainers, running shoes and plenty of water/fluids.

Training will start promptly on time each week and for anyone late, then individual & team penalties will apply (so we suggest you arrive in plenty of time to have a chat and a kick about prior to starting).

A register will be taken at each session to record attendance for purposes for judging individuals commitment to the training & fitness, plus for the collection of subs (which are £2 per week for training) and for fines.  The £2 helps with costs for training equipment and towards the weekly hire of the all weather pitch from September which is currently £28 per week.

Pre-Season is about you getting fit!  So the challenge is personal, one of improving week on week.

Training is only once a week, so we rely on each person to also train additionally in between sessions.  Both teams play at a good standard of football which requires players to be very fit.

The location of a training session may also vary, so listen out each week and watch the Website.

Our aim for pre-season is to have fun and get fit.  Best of luck.

During the Season:

From September training reverts back to one session a week on Wednesday nights and starting the 11th September, training also transfers to the Arena Sports Centre, Bognor 3G all weather pitch from 7.45pm to 9pm.

We then remain at the Arena until the end of March 14, after which we revert back to Lavant.
