Lavant First Team and Reserves have both been drawn away fixtures in the Sussex cup competitions.

The First Team are away to Worthing Reserves scheduled on the 12th October, kick- off 1.30pm in the Sussex Intermediate Challange Cup and the Reserves are away to The Vardar VIP on the 2nd November, kick-off 1.30pm in the Sussex Junior Cup.

Unfortunatley there does not seem to be much information regarding the Worthing FC Reserve Team or development squad and searching further on the net it appears the team has folded right at the start of the season.  But there is nothing mention on the Official Website, just the Rebels Rebels – Unofficial Worthing FC Forum.

If this is the case then the First Team could go into the 3rd round to be played at the beginning of November, away against the winners of the game between Eastbourne United Association Reserves vs Ferring First Team.

We will give you an update once we have spoken to the Sussex FA.

The Reserves face The Vardar VIP who are now in Division II South of the West Sussex League and were last season in the same Division as the Reserves.  The Reserves were unfortunately relegated whilst the Vardar were promoted to Division II after winning the league.  They are yet to play this season , but the Reserves played them three times last season, losing away 5-0 and at home 2-5 in the league and in the Division III South cup narrowly losing at home 3-4, so we know a lot about the side and this fixture will be challanging for Spider’s & Mel’s new emerging team.
