CONCORD Rangers and Canvey Island are both celebrating victories in the FA Cup, reports Leon Imber. 

Concord progressed to the fourth qualifying round of the competition after seeing off Whyteleafe FC 2-1, a team that competes in the Isthmian South East Division.

Sam Blackman bailed out Danny Scopes’ side after going a goal down, but the manner of the performance will not bother them as they take one step closer to the first round.

Another side victorious were Canvey Island, who put in a resilient performance to earn a 2-0 victory over Bedfont Sports.

Harrison Chatting scored the first goal of the game with Michael Finneran doubling Mark Bentley’s men’s lead shortly before half time.

The Isthmian North Division side held firm in the second half to secure a deserved win which sees them enter the fourth qualifying round.

To round off the night’s action, in the Isthmian North Division, Great Wakering Rovers took a share of the spoils in a six-goal thriller at Tilbury.

The lack of midweek action was certainly made up for in this match, and the spectators certainly got their money’s worth, as two late Tilbury goals meant both sides had to settle for a 3-3 draw.

Billy Harris scored on the brink of half time for Great Wakering, but there was less to cheer shortly after the interval as Connor Martin was sent off for the away side.

That did not seem to affect them all too much as 14 minutes after, Ayo Odukoya put them in front, and an own goal by Thomas Barton five minutes later put Great Wakering on course for all three points.

But eventually the man disadvantage told, and Stephen Butterworth’s side could not see out the victory.

Two goals in quick succession by Ola Ogunwamide ended Great Wakering’s hopes of putting together two successive victories.
