Visit to new stadium helps striker stay with Darts

Friday 24th March 2006

Being impressed with Dartford's new Princes Park Stadium was one of the reasons why former Tonbridge Angels and Chatham Town striker Brendan Cass shunned a move to Ryman League Division One side Dover Athletic earlier in the week.

Darts boss Tony Burman, who won’t have the services of Steve Hafner or Eddie McClements for their Southern League Division One East clash with promotion contenders Corby Town tomorrow, told and “I am delighted that Brendan has rejected the offer he received from Dover and delighted he’s staying with us.

”When I signed Brendan from Chatham Town I said he joined us for all the right reasons and I can tell you that he is staying with us for the right reasons as well.

”I took a few players to Princes Park last week, Brendan being one of them, to show the progress of the new stadium, and I have no doubt that this helped in his decision.”


Speaking about Corby Town, Burman added: “I am hoping we can reverse the defeat we suffered up at Kettering.

”Our opponents are having an excellent season and are pushing for an automatic promotion spot so the game will be very important but it’s a challenge that we are more than capable of rising to.”
