Dartford FC In Focus

Dartford FC, who beat Welling United 1-0 in the Blue Square South play-off final,  have had a much slower summer off the pitch than on it.  Despite victories over Orient and West Ham, as well as slender defeats to Gillingham and Arsenal Youth, manager Tony Burman has struggled to bring players to what has to be one of the BSP’s finest venues.  The arrival of Dagenham & Redbridge defender Mark Arbor will undoubtedly give a powerful rudder to the ship, whilst Nathan Collier (from Hampton & Richmond) is Burman’s only other signing to date.


STMI take a look at The Darts.  Here are Ticket prices for all BSP Away supporters prices  and please feel free to bookmark our  Blue square zone for when you are playing the Imps – HERE. The guide will start with the preseason results, transfers in & out, plus the released and new deals list. Then we will have a glance at the  summer sound-bites (most recent to last) and finally the current confirmed squad as at 2nd August.  STMI thank fans who correct us when we have got it wrong. It shows there is a kindred spirit that seems to care and share in the Blue Square. Rare amidst the greed culture of our national game and the financial walk of life. But while we have Saturday…..
