BILLERICAY Town and Concord Rangers both completed their National League South season with victories.

Already relegated Billericay won 1-0 at Braintree Town.

And interim boss Dan Brown was pleased to end a disappointing campaign with three points.

“I don’t subscribe to there being nothing to play for and I have to try and win every game,” said Brown.

“They were trying to win so I wouldn’t say there was nothing to play for but I would say it was a horrendous football match.

“We were poor but with everything that has been going on we kept going and it was good for the kids to get on too.

“It reinforces what we’re trying to do and we need to keep working on a way to get these kids in and to keep on growing.”

Robert Adams scored the only goal of the game on his debut for Billericay.

And Brown was delighted to see the youngster take his opportunity.

“To see Robert get that goal was an enjoyable part of the day,” said Brown.

“I’ve been banging the drum and I’ve been working with these kids now for a year.

“We brought the average age of the 23s right down and what you’re seeing now is those younger ones coming of age with myself here at the minute, luckily able to give them a chance.

“I’m proud of them and they didn’t let me down.”

Billericay will now be looking to regroup in the Isthmian Premier League next season.

And Brown wants the club to pull together in a bid to get back on track.

“Everyone has to shrug this off,” said Brown.

“The club, the owners, the staff, the supporters, everyone needs to group together.

“We need to make a decision and turn this into a positive somehow.

“We need to turn this upside down.

“It will be quicker and easier if everyone does it together. but out of negativity you have to find something positive.”

Concord finished their campaign 14th in National League South after beating Welling United 2-1 at the Aspect Arena.

Goals from Ryan Blackman and Danny Green saw the Beach Boys triumph in their final outing of the campaign.

And boss Chris Search was quick to praise his players.

“It was fantastic and I thought the boys were excellent,” said Search.

“They’ve been tremendous for me throughout the season and we’ve finished it now with a fantastic win.”
