CONCORD Rangers are going to Wembley for the first time in their history after a 2-1 victory over Halesowen Town in the FA Trophy semi-final, writes Theo Beevers.

The Beach Boys came from behind to win the game courtesy of a Rob Evans own goal and an Alex Wall winner.

The afternoon got off to the worst start possible for the Beach Boys, conceding just seven minutes after kick-off.

Halesowen striker Richard Gregory found the bottom right corner with a powerful left footed strike after some tidy footwork on the edge of the box.

Conceding the early goal immediately sharpened Danny Scopes' men as Concord started to create some good chances.

The best of the lot came in the 19th minute, as forward Temi Babalola missed a golden opportunity to equalise, firing a free header wide at the back post.

Concord continued to control the game with winger Lamar Reynolds' audacious half volleyed attempt fizzling just wide of the far post.

It was not long before the Beach Boys efforts came to fruition as an Evans own goal levelled the scoring.

After a dangerous cross from the right, the Yeltz centre back awkward footwork resulted in a bizarre attempt to pass the ball to the keeper from five yards out.

As the half-time whistle blew, it was Concord who entered the dressing room the happier, content with their overall performance.

Halesowen were eager to respond, as the first chance of the second half fell to their forward Reece Hewitt but the number 11 fired a left footed strike across the face of the goal.

First half tendencies quickly repeated themselves as Babolola skimmed the top of the crossbar from another free header in the 57th minute.

The striker held his head in his hands after the shot, knowing that he should have scored.

As the game went on the attempts on goal lessened, with both teams taking fewer risks the closer it got to full time; however, Wall decided to take the game into his own hands.

Following a beautifully placed cross, Wall arrived in the box and managed to chip the goalkeeper with a cleverly placed header.

The Beach Boys defended for the last 10 minutes with vigorous virtue and limited the opposition to extremely limited opportunities before the full-time sparked wild celebrations.

A debut trip to Wembley now awaits the Beach Boys on the 27th of September where they will face the winner of Harrogate Town against Notts County.
