TOM IS TEN-MAN HERO
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.
