LITTLEHAMPTON Football Club were crowned champions of County League Division 2 on Saturday with a victory over second-placed Newhaven.

Scott Packer’s header just a minute into the second half confirmed the Golds’ long-awaited title.

With promotion sealed two weeks ago, Littlehampton needed just a point to clinch the crown from their closest challengers and they did not disappoint.

Manager Mark Bennett said: “I am so proud of all the players, all their hard work has paid off and we are back where we belong.”
