Unbeaten Dartford FC Black U10s won the spring SELKENT A League having conceded just twice all season.

Their success has not gone unnoticed, with keeper Magnus Amasiatu being snapped up by Millwall.

Boss Dave Fisher said: “Magnus has been amazing for us for a number of years and only 12 months ago turned down the chance to sign for Arsenal.

“But now Millwall have come in and offered him less traveling times to training, he just had to take up their offer.”

Dartford Black will now move up to nine-a-side football at U11s level and will be looking to add next season’s London Cup to their trophy cabinet.

Manager Dave Fisher said: “We are the first Dartford FC junior team to have won their top flight division.

“Even though we have lost some great players to clubs such as Millwall, we have been able to strengthen further by bringing in players from one of our biggest rivals Parkwood Rangers, who have now folded.”
