John Taylor notched up a significant landmark as he took his club goal tally to 200 in helping the Dales to a terrific 2-1 win over champions elect, Chingford Athletic.

Playing the game on a bobbly surface that didn’t help either side, the Dales put past results behind them in a tightly contested first half.

They got themselves a lead on the half hour when Richard Kingston chased down a lost cause and was tripped for his efforts inside the box. JT stepped up and slotted away from the spot to go to 199 goals.

Chingford were level soon after however as a deep throw was bundled in at the far post to make it 1-1 going into the break.

The second half continued to be tight but the Chingford keeper had to be on top form to deny a couple of good chances which came the Dales’ way. But with just 20 minutes to go, JT scored one of his trademark goals, a swashbuckling effort from well outside the box, to regain the lead and more importantly bring up the long awaited 200th club goal. This is a tremendous effort from a player that has demoralised defences at every level for years.

The goal was a fitting way for the game to end but there was still time for another moment on controversy as in the very last minute, a Chingford cross was nudged over the line but with the use of a hand and the goal was ruled out correctly.

With Chingford needing to win to take the title, this was a blow to them but they still have games to come to sow up the crown.
