CLUB SUPPORTS SACKED P&O FERRIES STAFF

The club, like so many other residents of Dover, were shocked and saddened by the news that P&O Ferries had sacked 800 workers, including 600 from our port, last month.

As a small goodwill gesture to show our support for the town and its people, the football club would like to offer FREE tickets those former P&O Ferries employees affected to our five remaining home games at Crabble this season.

Partners and dependant children are also included for free in this offer, which starts with the visit of Maidenhead United this Saturday (3pm).

Chairman Jim Parmenter said: “When you hear of events that have such horrible impact on the lives of individuals, their families, and our town collectively, it can leave you with a sense of helplessness.

“We wanted to do something which we hope will bring some enjoyment to the families affected at this difficult time and to demonstrate our support to the community.”

Proof of redundancy from P&O Ferries, whether it be email, letter, or P45, together with photo ID is required to secure the free tickets.

There will also be a designated turnstile for those wanting to take this offer up.

The hosts are currently fourth on the National League table, one point behind third-placed FC Halifax Town, who they beat 3-1 on Tuesday.

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT US?

You can read the hosts preview HERE

LAST TIME WE MET

Manager Andy Hessenthaler’s patched-up side suffered late heartbreak after Jordan Davies’ goal six minutes from time secured all three points for Wrexham after a 1-0 win at Crabble last December.

Hessenthaler was forced to play players out of position with on-loan Crawley Town defender Harry Ransom pulling out on the morning of the match due to illness.

Millwall loanee Junior Tiensia played at right-back rather than left with Danny Collinge suspended, while Seth Nana Twumasi, who only turned up to get treatment for his knee injury, found himself replacing Ransom, and doing it in a pair of borrowed boots too!

Twumasi hasn’t trained for three weeks either, but it didn’t show as he produced an outstanding performance at the back in substitute Noah Carney’s boots.

Despite the changes, Whites made the visitors work hard and it could have been such a different result with Hessentahler’s team seeing a penalty claim waved away after TJ Bramble was bundled over by visiting captain Luke Young four minutes before half-time.

Whites hit the woodwork three times in the second half before Wrexham won it at the death after Davies’ corner eluded everyone.

Attendance:838 (198 away).

LEADING SCORER

Paul Mullin is leading the way with 16 goals in the National League this season.
