Vanarama National League South
Concord Rangers 2
Blackman 78 (Pen)
Welling United 1
Concord close out the season with a comeback win against the survival bound Welling.
Hosting beachboys found early openings with Danny Green’s rasping strike well saved by Samuel Jackson.
But it was the visitors who took the lead with a perfectly shaped curling effort which found the corner.
Ryley Scott came within a whisker of a half time equaliser when his long range clip caught the crossbar.
Into the second half and Concord were well in the ascendancy. A hand ball and referees whistle signalled penalty for the hosts. Up stepped Ryan Blackman, dispatching the spot kick with ease.
The latter stages of the game and season saw more drama unfold, with James Blanchfield providing for Lamar Reynolds who clipped the post. But there was still time for a final curtain call, with Reynolds hanging up the perfect cross for Green to head home earning both a rapturous applause and three points to close the season.
Entertaining rating – 4/5
Star man – Ryan Blackman (Concord Rangers)
