Boss Andy Hessenthaler speaks to the camera following Whites’ 1-1 home draw with Bromley on Saturday.


We are very pleased to welcome Pat Sutcliffe to our team as our first employee of the Dover Athletic Community Trust.

Pat has a genuine passion to make our trust a massive success in our local communities and has a breadth of experience and a variety of contacts that enables him to fulfil the role.

The success of this role and how we develop our trust will very much be down to the relationships we nurture within our community and beyond and enable us to build a variety of opportunities to invest in and improve the Dover district and its community needs.

I’m sure all involved with Dover Athletic will join us in wishing Pat every success in his new role and support him on this journey.

Pat will very much take the lead on delivery of our community intentions.

This is the start of something potentially very powerful and impactful in our community where we can make a real difference!

The Vanarama National League has released details of the opportunity for ALL football fans to purchase Early Bird tickets for their Promotion Final on Saturday 11th May 2019 at Wembley Stadium connected by EE.

Tickets are now on sale and will remain available as outlined below direct from Wembley Stadium Ticketing Portal. This offer is only available on-line.

There is also an option for ‘Print at Home’ (PAH).

EARLY BIRD offer – up to and including 28th February 2019:

Adults: £20

Seniors (Over 60): £10

Under 16: FREE **

(** 1 free U16 ticket can be ordered for each ticket sold at Adult or Senior price).

Additional tickets for Under 16 over the above allowance can be purchased at £5 each.

Early Bird sales are made even more attractive as no booking fee is charged.

Please be advised no ticket is refundable once purchased through the Early Bird option.

 Disabled seated allocation is available directly through Wembley Stadium and details are also available on-line.



 General Admission Ticket prices for the Promotion Final will be announced in April.

Early Bird tickets will NOT be forwarded to purchasers until the two competing finalist clubs are confirmed. This will allow for ticket allocation to be made in blocks for any group of supporters of a neutral club wishing to be in the same area. Initial purchase therefore will be placed into holding blocks for the time being.

In order for this to be offered, each purchaser will be required to nominate which National League member club they align themselves to or they may indicate a ‘No Preference’ neutral option.

Supporters of the two clubs who do reach the Promotion Final and who purchase Early Bird tickets will be allocated their tickets for the correct area of the stadium when allotted to each finalist club.
