Dartford FC midfielder Elliot Bradbrook moves onto 140 goals for the club

By Steve Tervet

Elliot Bradbrook is repaying the faith of his managers after scoring yet another vital goal for Dartford.

The former captain netted his seventh of the season to earn a point at Wealdstone on Saturday.

Bradbrook, 33, has now scored 140 goals for the club across 10 years.

He’s fitted football around his work commitments this season, starting just 14 of 24 league games, but is still doing the business.

Dartford joint-boss Jamie Coyle said: “We were talking this week about the number of points his goals have won us.

“The majority of goals he’s scored have been equalisers or winners, going back to the start of the season when he scored the only goal against Chelmsford.

“He’s a natural leader so we’re really thankful we’ve got a relationship this year that’s allowed the flexibility of him managing his family life with a new baby and accepting he’s going to miss certain games and training sessions.

“He’s repaid us by already scoring seven goals this year.”

Bradbrook showed characteristic desire to get on the end of a Ben Greenhalgh corner at Wealdstone.

“We’ve needed that this year,” Coyle said. “Ben’s one of the best set-piece takers in the league but we haven’t capitalised enough.

“Elliot’s the main player in our team that has that desire and aggression to attack things.

“He usually gets 10-15 goals but they’re through penalties as well. This year 90% of them have been from set-pieces.

“The record he’s got is outstanding. He’s scored 10-plus goals in the last seven or eight seasons and you can’t really take that out of the team because it’s so important.”
