KM Football Podcast 50 - Tom Bonner

Tom Bonner is no stranger to success.

The Dartford centre-back looks back on a career littered with play-off finals, promotion campaigns and even a couple of trips to Wembley.

You can find out how close Bonner was to joining Gillingham and Millwall.

He reveals for the first time what really happened just minutes before Ebbsfleet's play-off final against Maidstone in 2016.

It was a game that saw Bonner play at right-back for the first time in his career - and stripped of the captaincy.

Bonner reveals the secret behind Steve King's remarkable turnaround at Dartford this season.

Plus he looks back fondly on his time at Dover Athletic - and reveals why he turned down a permanent move to Crabble. Instead, he actually took a pay cut to join Ebbsfleet.

And the pain of failing to take Dartford back to the top flight of non-league football is still hurting as we look back on the year they went head-to-head with Havant for the title.
