Hemel 3 v Concord 0

Match report by Allan Mitchell - Photography by Dan Finill

Hemel hit three but could have had more against struggling Concord.

The weather effected any chance of either side playing any real football in the first half as heavy squally showers swept across the Vauxhall Road pitch.

Hemel had an early penalty appeal turned down when a Josh Williams shot appeared to strike an arm, the ball deflected to Kory Roberts and his effort was blocked on the line.

The Tudors went in front on 26 minutes when Reece Grant got on the end of a superb Charlee Hughes cross.

Concord offered little threat until the 36th minute when a free kick skimmed off the head of Harvey Beck and went wide.

Hemel pressed again in the second half and went further in front when a corner was played short, Concord looked to have dealt with the danger but they only half cleared to Grant who had time and space to pick his spot for his second of the game on 53 minutes.

Dom Morgan-Griffith saw his header superbly saved by Mitchell Beeney who tipped the ball over the bar before Hemel really put the game to bed in the 66th minute with Josh Williams driving home from the edge of the box after Concord once again failed to clear their lines.

Josh Williams brought another good save out of Beeney in the 80th minute with Concord now looking at damage limitation.

In the end it was a comfortable win for Hemel and a result that leaves Concord cut adrift at the foot of the table Hemel: King; McKenzie, J.Williams, Roberts, Hill, O'Connor-Ajayi; G.Williams, Morgan-Grifiths, Castiglione (Bright); Grant (Holness) Hughes (Mukendi) Subs not used: Brown, Westbrook.
