BARNSTON'S Essex Premier Cup dreams were ended in Canvey Island on Saturday despite a spirited performance from the visiting side.

The visitors matched their opponents in the opening 30 minutes and created several chances but were unable to put them away.

However, a soft goal was conceded when a cross was not dealt with and left the Concord striker with a simple tap in, before a goal right on half time saw the home side two up at the break.
