LAVERSTOCK and Ford rode into the second qualifying round for only the second time in the club’s history following a one sided away win at league rivals Whitchurch.

Laverstock who had only won one of three previous FA Cup fixtures were keen to follow on from their opening league win on Tuesday night.

Rob Gallagher opened the scoring on 18, tucking in after a Scott Donaldson layoff. Gallagher should have put the tie out of site but missed his next two opportunities.

Adam Bourner’s volley sent the visiting fans into delirium but a late flag denied a memorable goal.

However on 46 minutes, Graham Mankin nodded home a Lovegrove corner to ensure a 0-2 cushion at the break.

Whitchurch came out fighting after the interval, they too thought they had scored, but a that goal was also, disallowed for offside. With changes made the introduction of James Clifton posed a threat and it was no surprise when he lashed home an Olly Hoare cross on 75.

The comfortable win was marred by a terrible challenge on Sam Dorrington which left him needing hospital treatment.

In the end, despite the bumps and bruises Lavvy sailed into the next round, and will face either Knapphill FC or Bournemouth FC on August, 19.
