It is with great regret that Lavant has had to withdraw from the Chichester & West Sussex Sunday League with immediate effect.

Our Sunday team manager Mel Milburn has had a poor response from players wishing to carry on this season, even after such a great first season back in the league, winning the Charity Cup and being promoted.  So after much sole searching he has decided to resign as manager to concentrate on his son’s football with Felpham Colts.

We have tried to get someone to take on the Sunday team but no one is willing to take on the role and everything that goes with it.

We are very disappointed that we have to withdraw at this late stage, but 100% accept Mel’s decision to spend more time with his son and we will really miss him at the club after dedicating the last 16 seasons with being involved with Lavant.
