Haven’t We Met Before? | Chessington & Hook United | FA Vase
This Saturday we host Chessington at Culver Road, in the Buildbase FA Vase First Round Qualifying, 3pm kick-off.
The Lancers last encountered Saturday’s visitors in 2017, in the Extra Preliminary Round of The Emirates FA Cup. Despite earning a replay following a 2-2 draw at Chalky Lane, the Lancers lost 3-1 to The Blues in the replay at Culver Road.
Last season, despite an impressive FA Cup run, Lancing failed to progress past the first Vase tie, with a 2-1 defeat against The Sheers, played at the stadium of Woking FC. Meanwhile, Chessington blazed past the first round, with a 7-0 thumping of SCFL Division 1 side, Oakwood, before losing to our previous opponents, Sheerwater, 5-0 on home turf.
Coincidentally, our Under-18s have also been drawn against Chessington & Hook in their FA Youth Cup fixture this season, which will be played on Tuesday night at Culver Road, 7:30pm kick-off.
The FA Vase is a cup both sides will both want to do well in – come down and show your support this Saturday!
