Dover approach Darts for "quality" striker Cass

Monday 20th March 2006
Dartford manager Tony Burman is hoping to persuade striker Brendan Cass to stay at the Southern League Division One East club, following a seven-day approach from Dover Athletic, writes Stephen McCartney.

The prolific striker, whose also played for Tonbridge Angels and Chatham Town, has scored two goals from six games with the Darts, but Dover boss Clive Walker is interested in bringing the 22-year-old to Crabble to boost their promotion – via the play off’s – chances.

Burman told  “Brendan has been the subject of a seven day approach from Dover and they can talk to him from today.

”I worked hard to persuade Brendan to leave Chatham and he decided to join us for all the right reasons in trying to improve himself.

”I think Brendan is quick, works hard, is good enough in the air and is willing to listen to what you have to say to improve his game, and has a great attitude and above all has got a proven track record of scoring goals.

”I am sure that’s why many managers would want Brendan in their side – it’s called quality.

”I am very hopeful that Brendan will stay and have a bright future with us.”
