The first half was all Concord Rangers kicking into the wind, we had 75 % of the play. The Belfry goalkeeper keeping their side in it with a double save from Sonny Hartman. On a rare attack from Belfry against the run of play Paul Frensham kept out the Belfry centre forward with a fine save.

The sides went in at half time 0-0.

The second half with no changes from either side, but with the wind in Concords favour for the second half the Beachboys blew Belfry away with a superb header into the top right hand corner from Aaron Russell after a Sonny Hartman cross on 60 minutes. Concord continued on the front foot and after 2 substitutions Ellis Park scored Concord ‘s second on 67 minutes.

Belfry started to push more forward but that enabled the beachboys to capitalises on 80 minutes. Sonny Hartman made it 3-0 and then the 4th came 3 minutes later when Aaron Tatham picked the ball up in his own half and ran through the Belfry team to lay it off in the penalty box for Jamie Brown to score our 4th for an easy win and put us in the Sunday Essex Junior Cup against Castlemayne.
