Weston winner helps Dartford midfielder Alex Brown bounce back from red card low against Chelmsford

By Matthew Panting

Alex Brown made up for his FA Trophy red card by scoring the winner for Dartford on Tuesday night.

Brown’s rash challenge last Saturday meant the Darts had to play more than half of their second-round tie against Chelmsford with 10 men.

But he provided the perfect response by firing home a stunning winner against Weston.

“I enjoyed that one, it was good to get the winner but as soon as I hit it I cramped up so I couldn’t celebrate as much as I wanted to,” said Brown.

“It’s been pretty up and down. I was down on Saturday, I got caught up in the moment and was gutted to get sent off.

“I watched the second half and saw the guys dig in against 11 men. It was disappointing as I know if we’d had 11 players then we would have won or at least got a replay."

After a similar strike against East Thurrock earlier this month, Brown is fast developing a reputation at Princes Park.

He added: “It was a lovely feeling. I’ve always wanted to get double figures in a season so it’s good to get a couple of good strikes in the last two weeks.

“I don’t normally score a boring goal, although I’d take them however they come as they all count.”
