Dartford manager Tony Burman says Dartford will give everything in FA Trophy semi-final
By Steve Tervet
Tony Burman has promised his players will give everything when
they tackle high-flying Grimsby in the first leg of their FA Trophy
semi-final on Saturday.
The Darts travel to Blundell Park as underdogs but while Burman
(pictured) is aware of the challenge which lies ahead, he is
confident his players can spring an upset.
He said: "Anything’s possible. We were in the last eight and
we’re now in the last four. Grimsby are at the top of the tree and
flying at the moment. But it’s not about what position you are in
the league, it’s about what you do on the day."
Dartford have already won at Blundell Park this season, with
goals from Tom Champion and on-loan Adam Birchall firing them to
victory in October.
However, the Mariners have not lost at home for three months and
have recently strengthened their squad in an attempt to return to
the Football League.
Burman added: "I don’t think Grimsby had lost for about 11 games
when we went there. Things went for us that day.
"They’re a good side. We know that and they’ve strengthened
massively since we played there with the amount of numbers they’ve
got in the squad."
