Lancing scored a surprise friendly win over Isthmian Premier League Division neighbours Worthing at Culver Road last night.
Adam Hinshelwood's team included several trialists and young prospects as they suffered a 2-1 defeat.
But it was an impressive victory for Lancers and new boss Naim Rouane.
Despite the defeat, Hinshelwood felt it was a good chance to give potential recruits and youth players a chance to shine.
He said: "The game at Lancing gave us an opportunity to look at some trialists. Both friendlies have served a purpose for us really.”
Worthing kicked off their pre-season friendly programme with a thumping 8-1 win at SCFL Division 1 outfit Selsey on Saturday.
