First, their midweek game at higher-placed Witney was abandoned after 70 minutes with the Darts leading 3-2 and then, on Saturday, the home match against struggling St Leonards was postponed due to the waterlogged state of the pitch at Purfleet's ground.

Dartford now face a fixture nightmare. Last night, as the News Shopper went to press, the Darts were scheduled to play their rearranged Kent Senior Cup semi-final replay at Gravesand and Nortfleet, while tomorrow (Thursday), the Darts play the rearranged league match against St Leonards, kick-off 7.45pm

This Saturday the Darts travel to Ashford ahead of Bank Holiday Monday's home game against bottom-placed Fleet Town (kick-off 3pm), as well as finding a

revised date for the Witney Town match.
