Images taken by Peter White. Dartford set off well and soon created (and missed) some good chances, then hit the post. Against the run of play, after about 20 mins, the Canaries took the lead, as the Darts keeper and defenders got into an awful tangle, which led to a surprised looking Carlton Morris tapping the ball into an empty net to put Norwich ahead.
After that Dartford still continued to create and miss more chances. (HT 0-1)

At the start of the second half young Spanish right-winger Sergi Canos hit the woodwork for the Canaries, only for Dartford to go down the other end and be awarded a penalty moments later. The Norwich keeper made a good save, diving to his right to block the shot. After that it was still end-to-end stuff as Canos continued to look dangerous, but missed another couple of reasonable chances. His persistence finally paid off near the end when he received the ball from a quick free kick, on the corner of the penalty area and clipped a perfectly judged left-footed shot into the top of the net at the Dartford keeper's far post to make it 0-2.

Dartford still had time to squander more good chances, including hitting the bar (they must have had about 30 shots at goal in the match , but few on target), but the final score was 0-2. Attendance 537
