Whitehawk are through to the third round of the FA Trophy for the first time after a memorable derby win.

Hawks beat Lewes 3-1 before a crowd of 723 at the Enclosed Ground with all the goals coming in the first half.

Ola Ogunwamide gave Rooks an early lead which Charlie Walker quickly cancelled out after latching on to a long ball from keeper Mitch Walker.


Charlie Walker put the hosts ahead from the penalty spot after he was fouled.

Then Dom Johnson-Fisher marked his return from injury with a fierce finish into the top corner from outside the box.

Rooks’ attempts to stage a second-half comeback saw Mitch Walker make a save early on and Jake Elliott head against the bar.

Hawks boss Shaun Saunders said: “I’m buzzing. It was a massive game for us.

“The way we responded to going a goal down early and the way we managed the game in the second half were outstanding.”

The tie gave Lewes a chance to hand a debut to Luke Dreher, a midfielder who has arrived on loan from Wealdstone.
