Lancing celebrate Lewis Finney's goal

Lancing edge Chessington & Hook United in five-goal thriller to progress in FA Vase - picture special

Lancing's flying start to the new season continued as they secured their spot in the FA Vase second round qualifying.

In-form striker Lewis Finney was at the double while Kane Louis also netted as the Lancers wrapped up a thrilling 3-2 first round qualifying triumph against division-lower Combined Counties League Division 1 side Chessington & Hook United at Culver Road. Naim Rouane's men secured £550 in prize money following the win and set up a home meeting with rivals Worthing United in the next round. Finney's opener and Louis' effort - both inside the opening 25 minutes - put Lancing in command. Yet Ellis Lentell pulled a goal back two minutes before the break. Finney grabbed his second three minutes from time, only for Gonzalo Esteller Valverde to make it 3-2 in stoppage-time. But Rouane's troops stood firm to come through.
