Concord Rangers are the new Rosser Under 15s Cup holders after they defeated Levels by four goals to one at Aveley FC on Essex County FA #YouthFinalsDay.
Rangers had to show character to come from behind as Randy Bulakio gave Levels a 19th-minute lead. But the Beach Boys replied through Louis Coleman, Stephen Scott, John Fadiya and Charlie Campling to claim the silverware.
Concord started the match on the attack, with Joy Ndokay taking a shot which was deflected and bounced off the far post. Shortly afterwards, Levels’ Sufiann Stillah produced an effort on goal which Rangers’ goalkeeper, Archie Howard, saved well. Levels maintained their pressure, however, as the ball was bundled into the goal by Bulakio in the 19th minute.
After a further four minutes, Concord equalised when Coleman’s lobbed shot dropped into the goal. And they managed to turn the match on its head with a second before half time as Scott headed home at the far post following an excellent cross. Seven minutes after half time, the Beach Boys increased their lead. The ball broke to Fadiya who smashed home a low effort.
Things got worse for Levels in the 63rd minute, as they were reduced to ten players. Just after this, Rangers put the match completely out of their reach with a fourth goal. Campling picked up a pass in the area and finished it well, giving Concord a comfortable 4-1 victory.
