Daggers net National Football Museum spot
16:35 14 August 2014
Dagenham & Redbridge have donated the goalnets from Tuesday night’s record-equalling Capital One Cup tie with Brentford to the Football League collection at the National Football Museum.
Many sides retire a shirt number in honour of a great player, but in honour of the great occasion which happened at Victoria Road on Tuesday night, the Daggers have donated the goalnets to the Football League collection at the museum in Manchester.
The incredible 6-6 Capital One Cup draw between the Daggers and Championship side Brentford, which the Bees ended up winning 4-2 on penalties, was the joint highest score in League Cup history, equalling Arsenal’s epic 7-5 win over Reading back in 2012.
But if you included the dramatic penalty shoot-out, the ball hit the back of the net a staggering 18 times in just over 120 minutes of football.
And Capital One, in association with the club, honoured the historic occasion by retiring the goalnets. But don’t worry, they haven’t left the Daggers without any nets, as they have handed the club brand new replacements.
