PREVIEW: WHITES V BROMLEY

Two in-form National League sides meet at Crabble this Saturday afternoon.

Andy Hessenthaler’s Dover have won their last three consecutive league matches and are unbeaten in six league games at Crabble.

Neil Smith’s men have won their last four league matches, however their 3-0 win at Havant in their last away match was their first National League victory on the road since a winning 1-0 at Maidstone United on 6th October.

Home fans might recognise a couple of familiar faces when the Ravens take to the field this weekend.

Winger Adam Mekki featured once for Whites in 2015 and Bromley fitness coach Ben May netted 21 goals in 40 games for Athletic during their 2012-13 National League South campaign.

 Notes:

 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.

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.
