Chippenham put up a battling display in Kent in their first ever league match with Dartford but with Andy Sandell, Jake Andrews and Will Richards all missing they succumbed to a 3-0 defeat.

Chippenham put up a battling display in Kent in their first ever league match with Dartford but with Andy Sandell, Jake Andrews and Will Richards all missing they succumbed to a 3-0 defeat.
Dartford were the first to show as Alex Brown’s shot from Richard Sho-Silva’s long throw was deflected behind.
The home side should have opened the scoring on eight minutes when Lyle Della-Verde failed to put away a telling cross from man of the match Ryan Hayes.
Three minutes later, Scott Twine making his Chippenham debut after a three month loan from Swindon Town was presented with an unexpected opportunity when home keeper Derin Ibrahim failed to gather a cross but he was unable to capitalise.
On twenty two minutes Tom Bonner, who had scored the winning goal for Bedford Town against the Bluebirds in the Southern League play off final over a decade ago, played a ball to Alfie Pavey but his shot was held by Jared Thompson.
Midway through the half home keeper Derek Ibrahim did well to parry a Bluebird shot before the Kent side opened the scoring on twenty six minutes when Alfie Pavey stole in at the back post to head home a cross from Hayes.
The last action of the half saw Ibrahim need two attempts to hold on to a long-range effort from Dean Evans.
After the break Thompson did well to thwart Hayes but the ball fell loose to Elliot Bradbrook whose follow-up shot was blocked by a Bluebird defender.
Substitute Andy Pugh set up Pavey who wastefully fired over the bar before the Darts doubled their lead on sixty nine minutes as Hayes crossed for Pugh to slide home.
Two minutes later a stinging shot from Alex Ferguson failed to get past Ibrahim.
Dartford wrapped the game up a quarter of an hour from time when Tom Murphy and Pugh combined for Hayes to pick his spot in to the far corner.
Thompson then kept the score down when he turned Alex Brown’s effort behind.
