On a glorious Indian summer afternoon the Deres ran riot against a below-strength Oakwood side to record a massive victory on the day John McFadden returned to Park View Road for the first time in six months.  It was:

- the Deres' record FA Vase win, beating the 7-0 victory v Sidlesham on 21 September 2008;

- our biggest win in any match since the 10-2 Kent League win v Sporting Bengal United on 21 February 2009;

- our biggest cup win since beating Faversham Town by the same score in the Kent League Cup on 27 November 2007, although that was a group stage game rather than a knockout. The last time we had a bigger cup win was a 9-1 Corinthian League Memorial Shield replay v Uxbridge on 26 January 1952!

- the 9th time we've scored 9 or more in a cup tie, and four of those were in the peculiar circumstances of wartime football. 

Deres' team was: Stevens, Hill, Dobson, De Melo, Yembra, Jones (Kalonda 53), Feudjiro, Quan, Pope-Campbell (Ngegba 53), R Wade (Mpungi 18), Adeniran.

Stephen McCartney from Kentish Football website was in attendance, and his excellent report and interview with Owen Jones can be found at .
