Report

Millwall loanee Harry Ransom sealed his impressive debut with a match-winning goal against Notts County at Crabble on Saturday.

The big centre half headed home Jack Munns’ pin-point corner in the final minute of normal time to earn manager Andy Hessenthaler’s side  a deserved three points on the opening day of the National League season.

Dover started brightly and another debutant, striker Ade Azeez, saw his dangerous cross just evade the onrushing Munns.

The Magpies replied with Cal Roberts, who was a doubt for the game, saw his shot saved by Yusuf Mersin before Richard Brindley’s effort was deflected wide.

Steven Rigg tried his luck from distance just before half-time but his effort sailed wide.

Rigg then saw his header from Munns’s excellent cross well save by the keeper just after the break.

The second half looked more open than the first and Roberts went close for the visitors yet again after beating his man and shooting just wider.

Kyle Wootton then went close after the ball was played in from the corner, however his turn on the volley went wide.

Substitute Bilel Hinchiri saw his overhead kick go over before Ransom sealed the points with a thunderous header that crashed into the net off the underide of the bar.

Earlier in the day, Hessenthaler gave competitive debuts to new captain Sam Wood, TJ Bramble, Ransom, Azeez and Marvel Ekpiteta.
