• Alhaji Sesay knows Dartford’s Conference National League South Playoff knockout with Slough Town will be a tricky contest, however, acknowledged that they are good enough.
  • He will be hoping manager Steve Kings keeps him in the first team when they get their promotion campaign underway at Arbour Park on Sunday.
  • The Sierra Leone International, 21, since joining Dartford has played fifteen times keeping nine clean sheets helping his side to a playoff place.

The Kent-based club finished sixth on the log with Sesay as their first keeper.

Without any exaggeration, they are three games away from a return to the National League after a five-year absence.

He is happy that they have curved themselves into promotion contenders, even though they were deemed a relegation candidate when King was appointed back in October.

“Playoff matches as always are tough, but I want to be a part of this challenge. I want to help the team to the best of my ability.

I’ll be happy to be part of all our remaining matches and hopefully, help the team gain promotion,” Sesay to FSL News.

Sesay added, “It’s going to be a tough game, and we are fully aware of that.”

The winners of the elimination round will face National South runners up Havant and Waterlooville in the semi-final on Saturday 25 July. The playoff final is due to take place on Saturday 1 August.

Meanwhile, The National League’s live streaming platform for the Vanarama National League North and South play-offs has officially been launched.
