It Was A Weekend That 'Ticked Every Box' For Dorking

He may have won twelve promotions in his near 25 years in charge of Dorking Wanderers, but Marc White says Saturday’s 4-1 destruction of Chesterfield was up there with his finest moments.

The champions-in-waiting were carved apart in front of the TNT Sports cameras as the stylish strugglers hauled themselves out of the bottom four.

It was the club’s first ever live TV win and perhaps the shock result of the season so far as two-goal Alfie Rutherford did the damage.

With the race to avoid relegation unrelenting, he hopes this is a win that can power the club forward with every point critical between now and the end of April.

“The game ticked every box,” White said. “It’s by far our biggest result since we’ve been in the National League, it’s one of the big moments for this club.

“We’re part timers, playing against the run-away leaders who are looking to wrap up the title in early March - everything was against us.

“But it was a proud day. We knew we were up against it but you can’t ever write us off. We showed what the club has got and that’s character.”

It ended a three-game run of poor home defeats but now it’s three games in the road with visits to Altrincham, Maidenhead United and Southend around the corner.

“The wolves crawl out when you’re not doing so well but we’ve never stopped believing in what we’re going, in what we’re all about.

“We needed that result badly, especially with how things have been going at home but we’re still fighting and we’ve shown everyone that we’re still battling. We’re not going to roll over.”
