Re: Dartford v Truro City Sat 20 Apr 2024

Probably very unlikely and academic, and not sure we would deserve a reprieve at the expense of fans disappointments elsewhere, but if Truro or another club were thrown out, I wonder if the reprieve would go to the highest 4th from bottom in either league. In the NLN, that's likely to be a team curr...

Re: Havant & Waterlooville v Dartford Sat 6 Apr 2024

It was all starting to sound so depressingly familiar with all the first half chances going begging, then conceding, so quite an unexpected turnaround. Well done lads and must be great joy for the travelling loyal and long suffering fans. A confidence boost for the last few games. First win of the y...

Re: Dartford v Hemel Hempstead Town Sat 23 Mar 2024

All sounds so familiar from recent games. Chances spurned and conceding just before half time. Rivals winning elsewhere, so lots to do in the second half - we hope!

Re: Dartford v Taunton Town Sat 24 Feb 2024

Nice to be back, and to see some old faces, for first game since moving to Derbyshire in October. However, the game was very average with little atmosphere or excitement. To have not been given a foul (possibly just outside the box), then see Taunton given a penalty straight from the breakaway, seem...

Re: Dover Athletic v Dartford Sat 17 Feb 2024

That was a tough nervy listen in 2nd half, but held out at last. Well done lads and the fans can enjoy the ride home now. Thanks for the excellent commentary. Onwards and upwards?

Re: Dover Athletic v Dartford Sat 17 Feb 2024

Logging in nervously from lunchtime walk. Hoping it's not deja vue from Tuesday's first half postings. Interesting team selection and our luck must change soon, surely.
And as I was about to post! Come on you Darts.

Re: News from around the National League South

Thanks Pete. Yes, planning a weekend down South with Taunton at home on Feb 24th likely; will be my first match since watching 3 games in Aug/Sep, with some renewed hope. Life's good in the Peak District, and moving here in October seemed a good time to be missing my Darts fix in hindsight, but it w...

Re: News from around the National League South

Things are on the up already under TB's 4th/5th (?) managerial role, without even playing, as we leap up to 15th courtesy of Truro's 1-4 home defeat today. We head them now on goals scored with the same goal difference. A similar result down there on Tuesday would suit just fine, please. With top pr...

Re: FAC 1st round Proper - Dartford v Abingdon Utd

I've not watched the Women's side, nor taken much interest, but surprised to not find any comment or follow-up to their F A Cup game on Sunday, either on our Forum or the main club website (no surprise there!). Had to Google to see that they won 2-0, and are now drawn away to Oxford United's Ladies....

I'm living in Derbyshire too, since 4 weeks ago, and will be following posts from the faithful attendees. Hope to travel down for the occasional match.

Thanks for the updates on the Sho-Silva brothers, lads. A decent player in a useful team then.

Re: Player news

And straight into their team v Altrincham tonight. Good luck to him. He'll be missed.
Also see they have a Sho-Silva in their side. Could he be the one playing for us a few years back, and who I think scored in the 1-5 Cup defeat v Swindon Town?

Re: Dartford v Tonbridge Angels Sat 23 Sep 2023

Was hoping to be there, but turned back because of congestion on surrounding roads from vehicle fire on M11, so hoping to see some positive posts from home. Would have been my last home game for a while, and last chance hoping to see a win this season, before moving north. Surprised to see the two l...

Re: FA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round - Dartford v Welling Sat 16 Sep 2023

Such a sad comedown after a lovely day walking in sunny Outer Hebrides, seeing granddaughters birthday celebrations then coming in range of signal when 2-1. Maybe not such a bad time to be moving away to the Peak District in 3 weeks time, although habits of a lifetime won't stop me looking in and dr...

Re: Dartford v Slough Town Tue 5 Sep 2023

Sadly, it's all been said, so little to add to a dreadful non-performance. Nothing in midfield apart from Woods showing some creativity and willingness to get possession, but final pass often missing, maybe with no-one looking for space to receive it. Our equaliser seemed a rather tame effort coming...

Well done lads. First home win and second clean sheet on the trot. A happier atmosphere there I expect now.
