Kennington and Sheppey United are through to the Second Round Proper of the FA Vase after each narrowly overcame fellow SCEFL opposition to progress.

In a dramatic match at Homelands Kennington got past Fisher thanks to a penalty shoot-out win, after the game finished 1-1 in regular time.

Callum Peck had given the hosts an early lead which Joe Mant kept for them with a fine second half penalty save.

Fisher’s Cedrid Nganga  levelled the scores with 12th minutes to go but it was Kennington that held their nerve best from the spot and they now eagerly await Monday’s Second Round draw.

Sheppey United will also have their name in the hat, thanks to a 2-0 win at Sutton Athletic.

A second half Richie Hamill penalty and Harrison Carnegie header got the job done for Sheppey giving them their second Cup win of the season over these opponents.

It wasn’t to be for Holmesdale or Welling Town though with the Dale going down 4-2 at home to AFC Uckfield and Welling suffering a 6-1 defeat to Hanworth Villa.

Erith & Belvedere and Stansfeld saw their games postponed due to the poor weather.

In the rescheduled game Erith & Belvedere lost in a penalty shoot-out after a 0-0 draw.
