SAM Beasant wants Concord Rangers to keep surprising people during the second half of the season.

Concord, who are ninth in the National League South standings, host Dulwich Hamlet this weekend.

And the Beach Boys’ shot-stopper is keen for the hosts to continue their fine season.

“It’s been good so far and I don’t think many people expected us to be where we are right now after where the club ended up last season,” said Beasant.

“Sammy (Moore) and the management team have put together a great bunch of lads and there is a great team spirit in the changing room too.”

Beasant has also played a key part in Concord’s improved campaign. And the summer signing has been pleased with his own form between the sticks.

“I’ve been pretty happy so far,” said Beasant.

“I’ve kept about 11 clean sheets so far and hopefully there will be more to come in the remaining games of the season because we want to end up as high in the play-off positions as possible.”

Concord’s push for the play-offs was hit by a three point penalty for fielding an ineligible player.

But Beasant believes the punishment will fire up the Beach Boys.

“It was tough getting hit with the three point deduction but now we just have to work that little bit harder to make sure that doesn’t affect us,” said Beasant.

“It will be another tough game but we will have to fancy ourselves at our place.

“We came away with a 1-0 victory at their temporary ground earlier this season but it will be a difficult game.”
