Vanarama National League South
Dartford 6 v 1 East Thurrock United
BAD day sat the office come and go and sometimes you can feel them coming but it was still a difficult pill for the Rocks to swallow as they suffered their heaviest defeat for eleven seasons, with this being their first loss by more than a single goal margin since early December 2015.
Rocks found the lively home forwards a handful from the start, and in Duane Ofori-Acheampong the play-off chasing Darts have a young striker who surely looks destined for bigger things as his power and pace gave Rocks problems all afternoon.
Goals by Tom Bonner (2), Alex Brown (13), Tom Murphy (23), Andy Pugh (37), Ryan Hayes (54) and Elliot Bradbrook (90+1) made it a terrible day for Covo’s charges.
Tom Wright grabbed a solitary goal for the Rocks in the 32nd minute.
Rocks return to action in the FA Trophy on Satruday against Braintree Town.
