SCL Youth Development League Challenge Cup Final

Pulse Academy (Chippenham) 2 – 2 Dartford FC “Yellows”

AET  Dartford win 4-3 on penalties

Dartford FC wishes to congratulate our DFC Yellows on winning the SCL Youth Development League Challenge Cup, winning 4-3 on penalties after the game finished 2-2 AET.

A goal on the 47th minute from Abdul-Raheem Sonmonu broke the deadlock giving the Yellows the lead, before Pulse Academy equalised near straight away with a goal in the 49th minute. Dartford would once again take the lead though with a fine goal from Richard Gregory before Pulse equalised in the 80th minute to take the game to extra-time and eventually penalties.

Penalties from Levi Maxim, Richard Gregory, Clyde Ondo and Abdul-Raheem Sunmonu, with fine saves from Sam Murray would be enough to round up the victory and bring home the trophy to Dartford.

A victory tomorrow for the Yellows against Barking “Blues” will also see the Yellows clinch the SCL East Division League title, setting up an East vs West Division Champions Final, and maybe a treble winning season.

The Dartford Whites are also through to the National League U19 Alliance Cup final and will be travelling up to Walsall on the 11th of May.

A very successful year all round from the academy.
