AS IS so often the way with cup competitions in the non league – today’s FA Trophy draw handed Concord an improbable next round meeting with the team they have just played in the league!

The Beachboys drew 1-1 with Vanarama South leaders Boreham Wood on Saturday and the teams will meet again in the third qualifying round of the Trophy at the Aspect Arena on November 29.

The fixture was confirmed on the eve of Concord’s FA Cup first round tie at Mansfield – one of the biggest games in the Essex club’s history.
