As some of you will know there is now an Arun Church FC team playing in the local league next season. They have played a couple of friendlies in the build up to the league starting in September. Laurie Mellor has written a report of their recent match:

Arun won a close match 5-4 against Littlehampton Athletic last Tuesday 8th August at Highdown. Ben Ansell was commanding in the centre of defence, Ben Young quick and slippery attacking in midfield and Harry Jupp thoughtful and intelligent at right back. Manager Jamie Mellor was very pleased with the team who look well organised and this was a very creditable result, given the strength of the opposition.

They play again this Monday (14th), again at Highdown, against St Peter’s, Brighton, 6.30pm kick-off. Do come and support your church team as they prepare for their first league season! I (Laurie Mellor) am starting a prayer group to support them – if you are interested in supporting them in this way, please see me after the Sunday service or contact me on 01903 882007 (daytime) or email
