Historic match to be marked by museum donation

14 August 2014

Dagenham and Redbridge's goal nets are to be donated to the National Football Musuem

League Cup sponsors Capital One have helped to mark the historic result of the Dagenham & Redbridge versus Brentford match earlier this week by arranging for the goal nets to be donated to the National Football Museum.
The Daggers hosted Brentford in a Round 1 tie at the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Stadium that saw a record-equalling number of goals scored in League Cup match - after the 6-6 draw at the end of extra time the tie was settled by penalties, with the Bees winning 4-2.
The 12-goal scoreline equalled Arsenal’s 7-5 Capital One Cup Round 4 win over Reading in 2012 to make it the joint-highest goals total ever in a League Cup match.
As with the way clubs sometimes honour great players by retiring shirt numbers, Capital One, in association with Dagenham & Redbridge, are marking the occasion by retiring the goal nets used in the match.

The nets will be replaced with brand new ones and those used in the historic Capital One Cup tie will be sent to the National Football Museum in Manchester along with a letter from Capital One, which you can read by clicking here.
