Match Report

CONCORD put six past Vanarama Conference leaders Barnet on their own patch to claim a memorable win on Tuesday night.

The Bees fielded a mixture of youth team players and professionals and they were put to the sword as the Beachboys claimed a 6-2 victory in a first round FA Trophy replay in front of a crowd of 354 at The Hive.

It followed Saturday’s 0-0 at the Aspect Arena and sets up a trip for Concord to Vanarama South rivals Hemel Hempstead in the next round on Saturday, January 10.

Steve Cawley put Concord in front from Joe Gardner’s cross but the Bees levelled when Matt Fry fouled Mathew Stevens and Bernard Mensah scored the resulting penalty to make it 1-1 at half time.

Sam Collins drilled home a low shot for Concord’s second after the restart and they made it 3-1 after an hour when Lewis Taaffe beat the offside trap and finished calmly.

Barnet found a way back into the game on 66 minutes when Stevens won another penalty following some holding in the box, with the young striker’s confident spot kick making it 3-2.

But the visitors quickly restored their two-goal advantage when Cawley fired in at the near post and effectively killed when Mitchell Pinnock bent the ball into the top corner from 25 yards out.

Concord captain Tony Stokes came off the bench to make it 6-2 in the closing minutes.

Barnet: Sam Cowler; Harry Taylor, Joe Gater, Charlie Kennedy (Sam Muggleton 57), Tamille Roache; Adam Mekki (Elliot Harris 66), David Hunt (c) (Fumnaya Shomotun 68), Wesley Fonguck, Luke Gambin; Bernard Mensah, Mathew Stevens.

Concord: Josh Vickers; Jeremy Walker, Matt Fry, Steve King (c), Danny Glozier; JoeGardner (Mitchell Pinnock 40), James White, Alex Woodyard, Sam Collins; Lewis Taaffe (Tony Stokes 70), Steve Cawley (Taylor Miles 70).
