Re: Steve King

I would like to thank Steve King for the work that he did at our club. Some of the football that we played was great to watch. Sadly, over the course of a season, we were not able to outperform the full time teams. We finished comfortably highest of the part-timers. I can only assume that there was ...

Re: Dartford v Chippenham Thu 12 May 2022 19:45

Very poor performance at home again tonight on an almost flooded pitch. Our opponents should have won the match in normal time. They had the better of the chances and missed an open goal. Not sure why we went into the penalty shoot out with our best striker having been subbed shortly before, but per...

Re: Climbing Snowdon Non League Legends (Dartford FC)

Congratulations to the old boys for completing their Snowdon challenge yesterday. The pictures suggest that they had good weather for it.

Re: Climbing Snowdon Non League Legends (Dartford FC)

Good luck to our legends for their challenge tomorrow. Hopefully they will be able to keep track of the match at Eastbourne as they climb the heights. What would we give to have them available for these last few matches at the peak of their careers? Hopefully our current crop of players can rise to ...

Re: Play off dates.

But that then clashes with the ladies FA Cup final which I am sure a number of us have tickets for already. Bother.

Re: Dartford v Braintree Town Mon 2 May 2022

I have just watched the highlights of the Slough match from Saturday. Although we have used a large number of players this season, I made two observations. The first was that players were very much on the same wavelength as there were a number of very subtle touches and first time passes that found ...

Re: Kent Senior Cup Semi Final - Welling v Dartford Tue 26th Apr 2022

This match has clearly excited very few fans. Less than twenty-four hours to kick-off and no mention - unless I have the wrong date. Both teams have far more important matches coming up. It will be interesting to see how each club lines up tomorrow evening.

Re: Press Release: London Stadium To Host Vanarama National League Promotion Final

Dreadful decision for non-league football. Soulless stadium where fans are too far away from the pitch and which is not designed to amplify crowd sound. Such a major match should be played at a major football stadium, not at a converted athletics arena. The clubs, players and fans have been short-ch...

Re: Dartford v Maidstone Mon 18 Apr 2022

What an anti-climax. Maidstone failed to impress me, but were still better than us in all areas across the pitch. We failed to register a single shot on goal. We had no help from a very ineffective referee (since when has an elbow been a yellow?), but he was not the reason that we lost. The match on...

Re: Dartford v Hemel Hempstead Town Sat 9 Apr 2022

Thank goodness that the anti football team we came up against today did not bring to an end our unbeaten record at home. It was two points dropped, not one gained, but I felt so happy to see us score in time added on for the constant diving and time wasting of our opponents. Sad to see King playing ...
