The Non-League Football Paper - - FA CUP SECOND ROUND QUALIFYING - By Jack Smith

VIS­IT­ING Tunbridge come into this fix­ture on a high, hav­ing equalled their best FA Cup run while in con­trast the Beach­boys have been dumped out the com­pe­ti­tion at this stage in the pre­vi­ous two years.

But Con­cord made short work of the Wells, hav­ing es­tab­lished a com­fort­able lead early, to book their place in the next round.

Khale Da Costa opened the scor­ing, ghost­ing in at the back post to head home a deep cross.

Billy Roast dou­bled the lead with a mag­nif­i­cent vol­ley from 20 yards, leav­ing cus­to­dian Chris Oladogba div­ing in de­spair.

The hosts were out of sight by the time the third hit the net. Ky­ron Farrell took con­trol of a loose ball be­fore crash­ing home with his left foot.

Con­cord will be un­likely to wit­ness a bet­ter goal this sea­son than Lewis Knights’ ridicu­lously au­da­cious strike.

With the ball fall­ing for him on the cor­ner of the box, he chested down and volleyed a per­fect thun­der­bolt into the far top-left cor­ner to wrap up the scor­ing.

The sec­ond half panned out ex­actly as most do when one side has de­liv­ered the fa­tal blows in the first, with the ac­tion pretty lack­lus­tre as Con­cord ran out easy win­ners in front of their own fans.
