Andy Hessenthaler has added two more of our Academy players to his squad ahead of today’s National League clash with King’s Lynn Town at Crabble (3pm).
Forwards Jack Nelson and George Nikaj, who are both 18, will join their Academy team-mates Harrison Byford, George Wilkinson, Kieron Agbebi, and Luke Baptiste in the matchday squad.
Nelson has been in the Academy set-up for two years and he’s the leading scorer for them.
He scored five goals in an 8-0 win at Weston-Super-Mare for Academy manager Mike Sandman’s team last month.
Nelson has also played for Larkfield and New Hythe in the SCEFL League this season, scoring seven times in their last six matches.
Dover resident Nikaj (below) made his senior debut as a second-half substitute in our Kent Senior Cup tie at Dartford last month.
