DANNY Scopes has set his sights on leading Concord Rangers to a fourth Essex Senior Cup crown.

The Beach Boys claimed the county bragging rights for three consecutive seasons between 2014 and 2016.

And Scopes, who took charge of the National League South outfit in May, has some happy memories in the competition.

“I was manager when we got to the final and lost,” said Scopes.

“I’ve watched a few finals since, when Danny Cowley and Adam Flanagan were in the dugout.

“The finals are a nice night out for the supporters and everyone associated with the club.

“We want to be the best team in the county.

“If we can get to the semi-finals of a competition during our first season as a group, that would be brilliant and tick a box.

“It would be good to get one game away from a prestigious final and then hopefully go all the way.”

Concord will welcome National League South rivals Chelmsford City to the Aspect Arena for a quarter-final clash tonight.

The winners of the clash will make the trip to Dagenham & Redbridge, who ply their trade in the top tier of non-league football.

Chelmsford are currently managerless after Rod Stringer was sacked last week.

And Scopes does not know what to expect from the Clarets.

“They are a good team with good players,” added Scopes.

“A couple of their players are taking charge after Rod left and they will be galvanised.

“We will make some changes to the team because everyone wants to play their part.”
