United will play their final game at the home of the Marigolds on Saturday, April 24, when they take on Ferring in the SCFL Division 2 Supplementary Shield.

United have spent five years as tenants at The Sportsfield. The club lost their previous home at Clymping Playing Fields midway through the 2015-16 campaign when they played under the moniker Clymping FC.

A short agreement was struck up between the two clubs to ensure Clymping's survival, and that subsequently turned into a five-year partnership.

United had expressed a desire to expand but the Golds revealed they could no longer accommodate them at The Sportsfield due to other demands.

Littlehampton Town wished United well in their future endeavours.

The Marigolds are currently in discussions with another club after an approach was made to enter into a groundshare agreement for the 2021-22 season.

More news on that will follow in due course.
