FA Cup: Bromley 3-4 Dartford highlights

Dartford reached the second round of the FA Cup for the first time in 30 years after beating Bromley in a seven-goal thriller at the Fortress Stadium.

Louis Dennis put the Conference South side ahead after a minute before Danny Harris levelled for the away side.

The visitors took the lead twice as Ryan Hayes and Elliot Bradbrook scored but the Ravens levelled first through Moses Ademola and then Danny Waldren.

Tom Bradbrook's header nine minutes from time saw the Conference side win.

Bromley manager Mark Goldberg told BBC London 94.9:

FA Cup: Bromley boss Mark Goldberg on Dartford defeat

"I don't remember them troubling us from open play, but they do what they do best, they get the ball into dangerous areas from set-pieces and they punished us.

"We've just got to learn to be more resilient with set-pieces.

"What an opportunity for us to make a bit of history. Again, fifth time in eight years, we've failed at this hurdle.

"A great crowd was good compensation as far as the owners are concerned, but commercially it was a good day for them, but it would have been a lot greater if we'd had the prize money as well."
