TOM IS TEN-MAN HERO

The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE - By Chris Pullen

DORK­ING WAN­DER­ERS gave a coura­geous sec­ond-half dis­play, de­spite play­ing with only ten men for 78 min­utes, to thor­oughly de­serve the three points from this Sur­rey derby.

Wan­der­ers’ Jerome Beck­ett de­servedly saw red for a de­lib­er­ate stamp on Merstham's Tom Ka­vanagh on 12 min­utes

And ten min­utes later, Merstham made him pay.

Ryan Hall robbed Ben Dyett as Dork­ing tried to play their way out from the back And he fin­ished well with a low drive into the bot­tom cor­ner from the edge of the box.

Alex Ad­dai had a great chance to make it two be­fore the break, but missed the tar­get with only the keeper to beat.

The sec­ond half be­gan with Dork­ing switch­ing to three at the back and the ten men be­gan to dom­i­nate. They cre­ated chance af­ter chance and on 61 min­utes, Tom Tol­frey was quick­est to a near-post cross and turned it in from close range.

From then on, there was only one win­ner. And the win­ner duly ar­rived with seven min­utes left.

Tol­frey was un­marked at the far post from a free-kick and squared the ball for ex-Merstham man Chris Bout­ler to fin­ish from close range.
