CONCORD Rangers striker Alex Wall surprised even himself with the manner of his winning goal against Halesowen Town.

The striker secured a 2-1 victory and a place at Wembley for the Beach Boys with an impressive sky-high volley.

And Wall did not realise he was even capable of scoring that kind of goal.

“I don’t really know what I was doing and when I watched it back I was quite amazed I had managed to do it,” said Wall.

“At the time it was all a bit of a blur but watching it back I think it was just instinct.

“Me and their number five were battling the whole game and I think him pulling me down actually helped me get my leg up there.

“It was a weird one but I’m dead happy.”

Wall was a regular goalscorer for Concord during the 2018/2019 season.

And he was thrilled to start his second spell at the club with such an important effort.

“It was ideal for me to come in at the semi-final stage and take all the glory,” said Wall.

“We’re all really excited for the final and a lot has gone into it.

“We weren’t sure if the game was even going to get played but the boys did extremely well, especially those who have been there since the beginning.”

Wall is now looking forward to Wembley and feels as though he will be playing alongside members of his family.

“It speaks volumes that everyone was just so made up after the game,” said Wall.

“It’s one big family at Concord and that’s why I went back.

“It’s so enjoyable and you could see that on everyone’s faces at the final whistle.

“It’s literally going to be like going to a cup final with my family.

“I went to the FA Cup final last year to watch my mate Andre Gray play for Watford and I’ve been there to watch England too.

“It’s unbelievable and I can’t play wait to play there.”

And, by playing at Wembley, Wall will also be following in the foot-steps of his childhood hero Nicolas Anelka who sent a good luck message to Concord on the eve of the game.

“He’s my idol growing up and we’ve had some dialogue on Instagram,” said Wall.

“I let him know about the semi-final so he sent a message and he sent one after we had won as well which was great.”

Concord’s final, against Harrogate or Notts County, will take place at the end of September.

But Wall is still waiting to hear if any fans will be allowed in.

“We’ve heard it might be a test event and they might allow up to 10,000 fans,” said the striker.

“That would be great, especially as I feel like I’ve already had about 1,000 people asking me about coming to watch!”
