These are the teams... in case you missed it:

The line-ups from Wembley.

Debut for Town’s brand-new all-black third kit... looking VERY nice.

Bright start from Town:

It’s been all Town during the opening exchanges, George Thomson seeing an early strike well saved by Chris Haigh and Lloyd Kerry also getting himself into a dangerous area inside the Concord box.

Lamar Reynolds of Concord Rangers controls the ball whilst under pressure from Connor Hall and Will Smith of Harrogate Town

Town still on top:

Concord have come into the contest a little bit, but Harrogate remain on top with 20 minutes on the clock. Stead came as close as anyone to breaking the deadlock a few minutes ago, spinning inside the Rangers box and bending a left-footed strike narrowly wide of the far post.

Great chance goes begging:

Stead should open the scoring from Jones’ low left-wing cross, but his close-range finish lacks conviction and Haigh is able to save.
