CAMERON Harris felt it was a great experience to go head-to-head with his dad as Concord Rangers faced Millwall.

The Lions - who are managed by former Southend United striker Neil Harris - ran out 4-0 winners at the Aspect Arena thanks to goals from Shaun Williams, Ben Thompson, Reuben Duncan and Fred Onyedinma.

Although he was not satisfied with the result, Beach Boys central defender Cameron was pleased to get some minutes in the pre-season friendly while members of his friends and family were in attendance.

The 17-year-old said: “It was lovely to get some time on the pitch and it was a great experience against a very good team.

“I know a few of the Millwall lads that have been there a while, like Tommo (Thompson) and Mahlon (Romeo), quite well.

“There was a point in the game where I forgot he was the other manager because he didn’t shout for a while.

“I realised again when I got out there but it was a good day for the friends and family.

“I said that if I scored I would celebrate by knee sliding in front of him!

“Unfortunately, it didn’t happen but we had 20 or 30 family and friends here, so it was a great occasion for everyone.”

Cameron came off the bench for a 25-minute cameo at the heart of the hosts’ backline.

And Millwall boss Neil believes his son is at a club which will allow him to progress.

The ex-Blues frontman said: “I was pleased for him and Concord are a great club that are going to give young players an opportunity.

“It’s nice for him and others like Louie Hunt and Dan Confrey because it shows that they are going to be given a chance.

“It’s important that they are given the opportunity, but only at the right time.”

Neil is good friends with Danny Scopes, who took over as Concord chief following the departure of Sammy Moore in May.

And Neil, who is based in Eastwood, is keen to build a relationship with the National League South outfit after being impressed with their performance in the friendly.

“It was a really competitive game,” added Neil, whose side will visit Southend United for another friendly later this month.

“I thought Concord were excellent, certainly for the first hour.

“Both teams could have scored more goals in the first half, but I was really pleased.

“The pitch was fantastic and I was glad to see so many supporters come and watch the game.

“Concord is a club that we want to have a relationship with because it’s a great club playing at a wonderful level.

“The National League South boasts a great standard and Concord want to embrace young players coming through.

“If we can have a relationship with them over the course of the season and send some players here to help both sides then that would be ideal.”
