Evening match played under floodlights. Not the easiest match to photograph, given the pools of light and shadow and the dynamics of the teams. Welling seemed to control a lot of the game and much of the action was at the Dartford goal end. Final score 3:1 to Welling. Adam Burchall scored for Dartford. I stayed mid-field and hoped to get better shots of the play, but found that produced its own problems with players having their backs to me some of the time or having other players get in the way.
Dartford FC seemed to be playing catch up and will need to up their game if they want to play Welling on their own terms. Welling weren’t beyond playing a rough game, and Andy Sambrook for Welling got a yellow card for his actions.
Welling played for every ball and tackled the Dartford team at every opportunity. Joao Carlos demonstrated some fancy footwork to keep the ball away from Welling.
