LEGEND SAYS THANKS FOR SUPPORT

Dover Athletic legend David Leworthy has thanked well-wishers after the news earlier this week that our former striker has recently been diagnosed with bladder cancer and will be having a growth removed on Monday.

Leworthy, 58, sent club photographer Simon Harris the following message:

“Please pass on a big thank you to everyone connected with Dover Athletic Football Club for their lovely messages and words of support during this difficult time.

“I look forward to seeing everybody at Crabble at some point in the near future for sure, COYW!!.”

Leworthy scored 86 goals in just 152 starts for Dover during his four years with the club and was voted our best ever player on the club forum in 2011.

Sending strength and best wishes to David for his recovery, from all of us here at the club.
