Could anyone help me with some details of the 97/98 ESC win?
Daggers 2-1 Purfleet (at Purfleet)

The date and the Daggers scorers ?

I remember they wanted to charge everyone again for the rescheduled fixture until a quick u turn and the game was free. The only time we ever won there.

Thanks to you both.

So was the first game abandoned or postponed after everyone was in?

Postponed after a huge downpour in the hour or so before kick off if I remember rightly, very late decision.

Yes we were all in the ground and they called it off. They then tried to withhold refunds which we went ballistic about, I remember the club official did a runner to the exit when confronted. Eventually I think those of us who hung around long enough got our money back.
