Dartford FC defender Ronnie Vint has no memory of playing against Whitehawk after suffering concussion

By Steve Tervet

Ronnie Vint has revealed he has no memory of his last appearance for Dartford.

The centre-half was concussed and broke his wrist during Wednesday's 1-0 defeat at Whitehawk and had to sit out the 1-1 draw at Chelmsford on Saturday.

Vint was out cold following the incident midway through the first half but eventually got back up and played on until half-time, when he was substituted.

"I can’t remember much," he said. "The boys are saying I went up for a header, he’s come in from the side and I’ve landed down.

"I played on for about 20 minutes after but I can’t remember a thing from kick-off to getting off the coach on the way home. It’s a bit of a blur.

"It’s weird. I’m looking through photos from Wednesday’s game. I played 20 minutes after (the incident) and I’m thinking 'I don’t remember that'. It is very strange.

"I went to Darent Valley Hospital that night and the head scan came back all fine. I had an x-ray on my arm and I’ve broken the scaphoid in my right hand.

"I get the cast changed Monday and go from there."

Vint was one of six Dartford players injured during the opening week of the season.

Manager Tony Burman was also missing Elliot Bradbrook and Duane Ofori-Acheampong at Chelmsford and during the game he saw Andy Pugh, Lee Noble and Ben Francis all limp off.

Vint said: "It’s not good but when we get a fit squad, I reckon we’ll be fine.

"Monday I’ve got to go for a scan on my head again and my arm.

"On Monday I get the cast changed, so if they can put it onto the fibre cast I can be back, hopefully, for Saturday but on Tuesday (when Dartford host Gosport) I won’t be fit.

"Hopefully I’ll be back for Weston away (on Saturday)."
