PreSeasonatBristolRovers1940s

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 start in August with a mixture of pre-season friendlies and training sessions all listed below.

League Tables

Following the West Sussex League AGM on the 13th July it has now been confirmed that Lavant First team (as we already knew) will be playing in Division 1, but Lavant Reserve team has been promoted to Divsion 2 South. This is great news for the club as it is the highest level both our Saturday teams combined have played for perhaps some 30 seasons or more.

Respective League make-ups are listed below:

Division 1
Barnham Reserves
Barns Green
Cowfold Reserves
East Dean
Faygate Utd
Holbrook
Hunston Reserves
Lavant
Newtown Villa Reserves
Petworth
Southwater
Yapton

Division 2 South
Angmering Reserves
Barnham III
Boxgrove
Fernhurst
Fittleworth
Lavant Reserves
Lodsworth
Predators
Selsey FC A
Stedham
Wittering Utd

This does however mean the stakes have been raised as both leagues will be strong and challenging, with a mixture of very good local teams and a few further a field.

We are therefore very keen to further strength both sides before we start this seasons league campaign in September 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
