The Darts played Bromley FC (again) at home for this significant match at the end of the season. The Darts were in blistering good form, soundly beat Bromley, despite their recent loss at Bromley’s venue in the league.
Hayden Bird, the Bromley Manager also explained just why a win over the Darts on the big day was so important for the Hayes Lane outfit.
“It’s really important because we identified from the beginning of the season it was a competition we wanted to win and also it was one of our main objectives.” (Newsshopper)
Just shows you shouldn’t be over confident!
So, Dartford have won the the Kent Senior Cup (also known as the John Ullmann Kent Senior Cup). Well done, team!
Gillingham and Charlton Athletic have confirmed they will play in next season’s Kent Senior Cup.
The two Football League clubs agreed to rejoin the competition, as exclusively revealed by Kent on Sunday earlier this month, which is to be officially announced at this year’s cup final between Dartford and Bromley at Princes Park on May 2.
“This is a very exciting time for the Kent Senior Cup,” said chief executive Paul Dolan. “Bringing back the magic to Kent’s oldest football tournament and raising its profile was high on my agenda when I took over as chief executive of the Kent FA in February. When Gillingham and Charlton dropped out several years ago the cup seemed to become less important to the county’s senior clubs. With the return of these two top teams I hope crowds will return to watch games in the competition next season.” Kent on Sunday
