CONCORD Rangers suffered Essex Senior Cup heartbreak at Dagenham & Redbridge.

The Beach Boys took the lead in the semi-final clash with Aron Pollock heading home in the 64th minute of the tie.

But National League side Dagenham netted an injury time equaliser and then won the resulting penalty shoot out 5-3 to advance into the final.

However, Concord boss Danny Scopes was keen to praise his players.

He tweeted: "Hard to take tonight for sure, but also proud of the shift the players put in tonight for the club. Few injuries and limited numbers but stood up to the challenge an no excuses. Thanks for those that come and watch."
