Who? – Billericay Town
What? – BBC Essex Senior Cup Semi Final
When? – Tuesday 1st March 2022
Where? – New Lodge
This Tuesday, Concord are back in action under the lights as they host Billericay at The Aspect Arena in the BBC Essex Senior Cup Semi Final. In what is a prestigious competition for The Beachboys, they will be looking to secure a place in the final against Bowers & Pitsea on the 12th of April.
Billericay Town currently sit 21st in the Vanarama National League South and look set for relegation as they are 6 points off safety. Whilst having some horrid league form, they’ve been almost faultless in this competition dispatching of White Ensign, Hashtag United and the other team on the Island to get to this stage. Both sides have already faced off twice this season in the league with Concord winning one of those 3-1 and the other finishing 0-0.
Ones to watch:
Billericay Town – Femi Akinwande – The striker signed for The Blues in December 2021 from Braintree and has scored 3 goals since joining. He also endured a spell at Concord in the 17/18 season as the former Beachboy scored 6 goals in 27 appearances before leaving the following the summer.
Concord Rangers – Ryan Blackman – The midfielder returned to the side last time out against Hungerford after a lengthy spell out of the team due to injury. His energy and desire was a big miss in the midfield for Concord and manager Chris Search will be delighted to have him back at his disposal.
