Round Three vs Heybridge Swifts, Won 7-0

Coming in on round 3 was just the right time for us after a disastrous start to the season. Two weeks prior to this game at Aveley we turned the corner and Heybridge were pushed aside with ease. Heybridge Swifts a very good EJA team were out played in all departments, we controlled the game from start to finish and took our chances well

 

Round Four vs Aveley (EJA), Won 2-0 We played Aveley early November in the league and won comfortable 1 – 7, but we knew being an Essex Cup game that this encounter was going to be a lot tougher and so it proved. Aveley worked extremely hard and made us earn our narrow 2 – 0 victory
Quarter-Final vs Chelmsford City (EJA), Won 4-1

Chelmsford came into this game on the back of a impressive winning streak. The game was played on 3G which really helps our passing game and on a blustery day our skipper Jed won the toss and opted to go with the wind first half, and it proved to be the right choice, we scored three first half goals, the best being a rocket shot from Ollie. The second half Chelmsford tried to use the conditions to there advantage but the defence stood firm, we then scored the fourth midway through the half and that settled the tie. Chelmsford did manage to break through our defence and score but with only seconds left had no chance of getting back into the game.                                                  

 

Semi-Final vs Maldon & Tiptree, Won 2-1

Once again we get drawn against a team from the Suffolk EJA Maldon & Tiptree they had the extra incentive of a win and they would be playing the final at there home ground. The game started with both sides trying to play football although we were guilty of to many touches in the final third and Maldon to many lumps over the top. A goal from Cody from a set piece settled our nerves and we gradually took control of the game, once we scored our second I thought game over but they pulled one back with 15 minutes to go and after a short charge we got the ball down and played the Concord way to see out the game

 

Squad Details

 

Players Name Position Profile
 

Luke Smith

 

Goalkeeper The success of any team starts with your gloves man and we have the best. Had trials with Millwall which couldn’t of been easy as he is a huge West Ham fan. A great shot-stopper.
 

Jed Smith

 

 

Full Back Our Captain works tirelessly up and down the right, has been on trial for Dagenham & Redbridge this season, strikes a ball lovely and very useful in the air.
 

Danny Hurford

 

 

Full Back Very Skilful and very strong, Danny also had trials at Dagenham & Redbridge. A great character to have in your team. When he goes catch him if you can.
 

Martyn Lacey

 

 

Centre Back Martyn is our longest serving player, one of the first on the team sheet. He has won everything that can be won at club level. Reads the game, plays it easy and very strong in a tackle.
 

Adam Liddell

 

 

Centre Back Very fast, great in the tackle and has worked very hard on bringing the ball down and playing it out. In fact once he runs with the ball the only way the oppo can stop him is by bringing him down.
 

Cody White

 

 

Centre Back Big and strong, has gone from being a no nonsense solid defender too a centre back who will bring the ball down and play, their have been improvements every season with Cody and this one is no exception. Has chipped in with some important goals this season.
 

Henry Sims

 

 

Midfield Thou shalt not pass, breaks up so much play a vital player in the centre of the park, he has had trials at Southend and Dagenham. Doesn’t score to many goals but can he tackle. His favourite word is “HI” I have no idea why he keeps saying it to me?
 

Sam Roser

 

 

Midfield In any other team he would play week in, week out, his favoured midfield position is highly contested here and has been unable to work his way in, but what a squad player he has probably played more positions this season than any other player and has always played them well, he never lets us down, a pleasure to work with.
 

Oliver Paul

 

 

Midfield His work rate on the pitch is second to none. In my opinion every successful team has a dynamo and Ollie is ours, strikes a ball lovely shame he doesn’t shoot more often
 

Daniel Nunn

 

 

Midfield One of four left footers we have in the team. Strikes a dead ball lovely. Lacking a bit in confidence and goals but will come back better than before, if that’s possible.
 

Sonny Woodward

 

 

Midfield What a box of tricks, If he is in the mood just give him the ball it sticks to his boot until he is ready to pass, and when he does its normally precise with great vision.
 

Jack Renew

 

 

Midfeld We lost Jack To Southend several years ago but once released Concord was his first call, I never managed him when   he was first here, but I wouldn’t want to go into a game without him, strong and determined great to work with.
 

Dylan Barns

 

Forward In my view every team should have a Dylan. Whether on or off the pitch you know he is around. Very skilful and very calm on the ball.
 

Jack Dresner

 

 

Forward Jack is lightning quick out the blocks can go around players like they weren’t there, strikes a ball with such power. Takes a lot of dead ball kicks.
 

Alan Gilbertson

 

 

Forward How we haven’t lost Alan I don’t know, seems every week, another club is looking, works so hard up top, never gives up on anything our leading scorer this season.
 

Tom Hill

 

 

Forward Tom is dual signed with us, unfortunately he can’t play today as he is cup-tied, but another character that is great to have around, knows where the goal is whatever level of football he is playing
