Magpies next for league leaders

Brian Caffaray - Alan Worth - 21st September 2011

Magpies next for league leaders Dorchester Town v Woking
3pm on Saturday 24 September 2011

The Cards travel to Dorchester Town on Saturday following their victory at Bromley and, with other results going their way, now sit at the top of the table. However there remains little between the top three sides and it will be important to maintain the current winning run and to establish themselves as the league leaders.


The Cards continue to score goals from all parts of the team and have found the net eighteen times in the last five league games. With players such as Moses Ademola, now on six goals for the season and in a rich vein of form, the side continues to look very dangerous going forward. Wayne Gray picked up a knock in the Bromley game but according to Garry Hill should be available for selection on Saturday leaving the manager with the pleasant problem of deciding who should lead the line. The rest of the squad should also all be available, bar those out on loan, with Derek Duncan continuing at left back following the end of Mike Cestorsí loan spell.


The Magpies started the season with a 4-0 hammering at Dover but then reversed the scoreline at home to Maidenhead. Defeats followed at home to Eastbourne Borough and Eastleigh before a win at Truro and a defeat at Sutton. The Magpies then surprised Welling, coming out on top 3-2 in a notable home win before beating struggling Hampton and Richmond away. A defeat followed at Basingstoke. On Tuesday evening Dorchester continued their inconsistent form this time losing at home to Weston 3-1. The Magpies now sit in sixteenth position.

Woking 2 Dorchester Town 1
21 August 2010

After two defeats against Dover and Chelmsford and the departure of Chairman Shahid Azeem, the Cardsí season finally got under way with this hard-fought win at Dorchester. Adam Doyle made his debut and Graham Baker also brought in Daryn Hennessy, Andy Forbes and Dave Gilroy. It was Gilroy who gave Woking the lead with an expertly-taken goal in the 35th minute. Dorchester piled on the pressure after the break and drew level thanks to a free-kick from Ryan Hill. A draw seemed certain before, in the last minute, a Lenny Pidgeley kick was headed on by Craig Faulconbridge into the path of Toby Little, who squared for Gilroy to grab his second goal of the match.

Dorchester Town 1 Woking 2
5 April 2011

This win lifted the Cards into 5th place in the fight for play-off places but it wasnít a convincing performance. Missing Michael Doughty, on international duty, and the departed Kieran Murtagh and Jay Davies, Garry Hill started with Lyle Taylor and James Walker. The Cards took the lead just before half-time when Adam Doyle peeled off the back of the defensive wall to head home Andy Burgessís excellent free-kick. But it was a rare Doyle defensive error shortly after the break which led to the equaliser. After being robbed as he tried to shepherd the ball out of touch, a poor tackle conceded a penalty, converted by Devlin. The Cards then got lucky, regaining the lead after the ball had been hammered against Taylor by a defender. Dorchester spurned some very good chances to share the points as a shaky Cards defence looked likely to concede again.

Come on, you Cards!
