Dartford boss Tony Burman will rotate his squad again for Saturday’s Vanarama Conference trip to Kidderminster.
Burman has already used 15 players in the first week of the season and won’t be afraid to shake things up at Aggborough.
Ryan Hayes, who missed much of last season with a knee injury, is the only outfield senior player yet to get on the pitch. He’s not the only one hoping to break into the starting XI – and that opportunity may come at Kidderminster.
Burman said: "I’ve got Danny Harris and Harry Crawford on the bench at the moment and they’ll get their chance.
"It’s a good bench and I’m pleased because that gives me options. I’ve told the players that this year we will try to rotate. People who have played all right, the next game I might still change it.
"It’s possible I will have used all the squad by the time the first three games are up.
"I took a lot of risks last season, playing players when they were injured, and I’ve made my mind up that I’m not going to do it this year. We will rotate because I feel that with the squad I’ve got, they can all play in the 1st XI.
"It’s a great option to have. Last year I never had that.
"The guys there can play in the XI and I will, if I can, rotate. That will give them a lift to know everyone can play their part in what we’re trying to do."
