BILLERICAY Town missed out on a National League South play-off place after suffering a 2-0 defeat to Bath City.

Harry Wheeler’s side went into the clash looking to keep their hopes of back-to-back promotions alive and destiny in their own hands.

But second half goals from Robbie Cundy and Tom Smith resulted in Billericay finishing outside of the top seven.

Although they will not compete in the play-offs, Concord Rangers finished the campaign in sixth place thanks to a 2-1 win at Eastbourne Borough.

Goals from Connor Essam and Joan Luque put the Beach Boys in the driving seat and, although the hosts hit back after the interval, Concord ended the season with another three points.

East Thurrock United’s three-year stay in the National League South came to an end with a 1-1 draw at Hungerford Town.

Shaun Batt put Rocks ahead with a cracking first half effort, but John Coventry’s side were reduced to 10 men with less than 20 minutes remaining as Jon Nzengo saw red.

And Hungerford were to snatch a share of the spoils thanks to Noah Chesmain’s injury time strike.

Isthmian North champions Bowers & Pitsea finished a memorable season with a 3-1 win over Tilbury.

James Thomas gave Bowers a first half lead, but former Canvey Island frontman George Sykes hit back for Marc Harrison’s Dockers.

However, Rob Small’s side were not to be denied all three points as Jamie Dicks and David Knight completed the scoring.

Canvey Island rounded off the campaign with a 3-1 victory at Brentwood Town.

Ade Cole’s deflected effort broke the deadlock just before the break.

Although Charlee Hughes – formerly of Bowers – got Brentwood back on level terms, Frankie Merrifield continued his fine run of form before Ryan Melaugh added his name to the scoresheet.

Basildon United suffered a 2-0 defeat as Witham Town maintained their Isthmian North status at the Ho Ho Stadium.

After a goalless first period, Kevin Coyle put Witham on course for the win they needed to avoid the drop.

And Sam Ashford, who netted for Concord in the National League South just five days earlier, ensured there was no way back for John Sussex’s Bees.

Steve Butterworth’s first match in permanent charge of Great Wakering Rovers did not go to plan as they lost 6-1 at Dereham Town.

Early goals from Karol Wengrzik and Rhys Logan put Dereham in the ascendancy, but a Matthew Castellan own goal halved Wakering’s deficit.

However, a Daniel Beaumont hat-trick and late effort from Jamie Forshaw allowed Dereham to run out comfortable winners.
