Manager Andy Hessenthaler’s squad returns to action at Crabble on Easter Monday when we host Woking at 3pm.

LAST TIME WE MET

Former Dover striker Inih Effiong scored twice to secure Woking a 3-2 win, their first in five matches when the sides met at the Laithwaite Community Stadium last December.

Max Kretzschmar’s sixth-minute penalty put Woking ahead before Jake Goodman headed home an equaliser five minutes later.

Woking was back in front on 34 minutes when Kyran Lofthouse pulled back for Effiong to bundle the ball over the line from close range.

Effiong made it 3-1 on the hour mark before Ryan Hanson pulled one back from a corner for his second goal of the season with three minutes left.

LEADING SCORER

Inih Effiong leads the way with 13 goals in the National League this season.

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.
