We won't break the bank, insists Darts boss Burman

Tuesday 10th January 2006
After collecting just two points from their last three games, Dartford manager Tony Burman admits to feeling disapointed but not downhearted but revealed he is searching for new players to bolster his squad.

Burman, whose side host Wivenhoe Town at Stonebridge Road on Saturday, told www.dartfordfootballclub.co.uk "I am disappointed but not downhearted as I think in our two home games the players have tried their best to get the maximum points.

"Football is such a funny game as we all felt that our back four have played well but may have conceded too many goals and at the other end we score on a fairly regular  basis.

"So what happens the back four put things right and do not concede and
the chances that we have created unfortunately have not been converted.

"I do not blame any individual player for this as we have five or six players who
are capable of scoring goals its just one of those things that happens and
you just have to move on to the next game to put things right."

Bow, East London based striker James Carter will be out for some time with cartlidge trouble, which is a massive blow to the Southern League Division One club, and midfielder Kevin Spriggs has been ruled out for the rest of the season. 

Burman added: "Some of our fans feel I should give our exsisting players a chance and I respect that opinion as this could happen, but I also feel we should see what players might be available from other clubs who I think will strengthen the squad without breaking the bank.  I am active in this area at the moment.
