Did you know?

-Dover striker Ricky Miller is the National League’s top scorer so far this season with a whopping 30 goals. That's 12 more than anyone else in the league!

-Former England caretaker manager Peter Taylor managed Dover in a short spell between 1995-96, guiding them to a 20th place finish in the Conference which was just enough to avoid relegation. He then took on the role of England U21 manager after being approached by then England boss Glenn Hoddle.

-The current man in charge at Dover is Chris Kinnear who has managed at the club across 14 seasons during two separate spells. He first took the reigns in 1985 and resigned 10 years later to join Margate. He spent nearly 11 seasons there before returning to Dover where he has been since 2012. Kinnear guided The Whites to promotion to the National League in 2014 and made the National League play-offs last season, missing out on promotion to League Two following a semi-final defeat to Forest Green. Their 5th place finish was the highest the club has ever finished in its 34 year history.

-Dover have reached the third round of the FA Cup on two separate occasions. The most recent was in 2015 when they hosted Crystal Palace in front of a record crowd at the Crabble Athletic Ground of 5,645. Goals from Scott Dann (2), Dwight Gayle and Kevin Doyle secured a 4-0 victory for Palace.

-The town of Dover is well known for people coming from all over the world to swim the English Channel. The first person to complete the swim from Dover to Calais was Captain Matthew Webb in 1875. He began from the Admiralty Port in Dover and, despite being stung by jellyfish and strong currents keeping him off the French coast for five hours, he finally made it to Calais in a time of 21 hours 45 minutes.
