The Island Derby: Concord Rangers 1, Canvey 0

Open your mind

Surely it's plain to see?
So, just a few short years after the then Gulls' manager Jeff King said they will be the number one team in Essex, it's confirmed - Canvey Island aren't even the number one team on Canvey Island.

Big crowd at Thames Road, 720. I thought the Gulls supporters let themselves down a bit with their continual chanting of what everything connected with Concord was s**t rather than supporting their team.

It seemed poetic justice that the game was decided by an injury time offside goal.

Here's one Gulls fan's take on it:

"How embarrassing though that the loudest noise from Concord was from their own players singing at the end!! They may be capable of 'buying' a good team, but one thing they will never be is a big 'club' - you can't buy fans."

I do love unintentional irony.
