Goals from Bradley Hudson-Odoi, Fumnaya Shomotun and Danny Green saw Stones through to next round

Bobby Wilkinson was thrilled Wealdstone made it through to the first round proper of the FA Trophy with a 3-2 win at Vanarama National League South rivals Concord Rangers.

Goals from Bradley Hudson-Odoi, Fumnaya Shomotun and Danny Green had put Stones into a 3-0 lead in Essex.

The Beachboys, though, hit back through Lee Minshull and Alex Wall to set up a thrilling finale.

Thankfully the Grosvenor Vale club were able to hold on to their lead and pocket £5,000 in prize money, pleasing boss Wilkinson no end.

“It was an unbelievable win and what a cup tie it was. To be 3-0 up and concede two, I’m not too worried about their second as it was one hell of a goal for them, it was a typical cup tie,” he told the club website

“We showed what we’re about, we hung in there and fought for our lives. It was a massive day for the club and I’m thankful to the fans for travelling a long way and supporting us.

“They were our 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th man at times. We were under pressure with 15 minutes to go, but at times like that is when we come together as one club. At the moment, this club is one and we’re all together. We don’t want anyone to like us, we just want to keep trying to win games.”
