Match Preview | Dorking Wanderers

The Bees travel to Meadowbank Stadium to face Dorking Wanderers in the Vanarama National League on Tuesday night.


Brennan’s men head into the game on the back of an encouraging 1-0 win over Southend United. The Bees will be hoping to use the result as a springboard to propel themselves into the National League play-offs come the end of the season.


Dorking Wanderers head into the game having not won in 3, with the most recent result being a 0-0 draw with Halifax Town.


The two sides have only ever met twice, with Dorking coming out on top on both occasions.


Nickname: Wanderers

Founded: 1999

Ground: Meadowbank

Manager: Marc White

Top Scorer: James McShane (17)

League Position: 19th



One to watch: James McShane


McShane is Wanderer’s top scorer and has proved himself to be an irreplaceable midfielder in White’s squad. The 28-year-old has featured in 94% of the team’s starting 11s so far this season, playing a further 85% of all possible minutes.


McShane has made 61 appearances for Dorking, scoring an impressive 31 goals. The Englishman averages a goal every 153 minutes, with the majority of his goals coming in the first half of games. Of all 31 he has scored for his current club, 17 have come in the first half.


Brennan’s men will have to ensure they are switched on straight from the first whistle if they want to keep the central midfielder quiet.


In the dugout: Marc White

Marc White founded Dorking Wanderers in 1999 and has so far helped them to achieve 12 promotions within 23 seasons, meaning his side currently sit in the National League.


Since Marc White’s official appointment as Dorking manager in October 2021, he has taken charge of 69 games, averaging 1.64 points per game.


White has only ever faced the Bees once, which was earlier in the season, and he came away with a win in a tight 1-0 affair.


White will be hoping to replicate that result in his 70th game in charge of the club.
