A MASSIVE crowd of 2,162 arrived at Princes Park to celebrate as Dartford were awarded the Premier Division trophy on Saturday.
They were provided with an entertaining game to watch but were denied a home victory when Sherwin Stanley scored with seven minutes left to give Aveley a 2-2 draw.
Dartford took an early lead through Rob Haworth, quickly wiped out by Ryan Edgar’s sizzling free-kick. An overhead kick by Billy Burgess gave the champions a 2-1 interval lead, only for Stanley to earn Millers a precious point in their play-off bid.
They dropped to fifth but have three games to come while some of their rivals have just the one fixture left.
The Millermen play Billericay away on tuesday, Horsham away on Thursday and finally Tonbridge Angels at the Mill Field next saturday at 3pm.
