18 March 2017. Dartford win 5:3 in a close-fought match. Andy Pugh scored twice as Dartford claimed three vital points to stay on course for the Vanarama National South play-offs.
Skipper Elliot Bradbrook, Luke Wanadio and substitute Tom Murphy got the others as Darts scored five for the second time this season against the Cornishmen, to come through despite some dubious defending - undone at the far post for all three goals. Fellow front-man Duane Afori-Acheampong deservedly won the man-of the-match award for a fine display, including three assists.
Goalkeeper Deren Ibrahim had his work cut out in his last game before joining up with Gibraltar again.
Tom Bonner was presented with his 200th appearance award and Ryan Hayes with this 100th goal award by Co-Chairman Steve Irving.
