ROD JOHNSON - 1946-2009


DOVER ATHLETIC take on Molesey this Saturday – hoping to bounce back from our first home defeat of the season last weekend.

Whites put in a hard-fought performance at Tonbridge on Tuesday night – but failed to find the target.

Manager Clive Walker is still on the lookout for a creative midfielder – but chairman Jim Parmenter today confirmed “there are no new developments” at the moment.

The club urge fans to get last Saturday out of their system, like the players and everyone else at the club have had to do this week, and turn up at Crabble in healthy numbers.

Only good gate figures will enable the club to bring the quality players to Crabble that we all desire in what is a long-term rebuilding job.

Jim has bought a drum for the Riverend Choir and this week we hope that the team will give them cause to make a huge noise behind the goal.

The chairman admitted that the defeat against Met Police on Saturday was completely unacceptable – but told WhitesLive reporter Tom Crawley that he was encouraged by the players’ performance at Tonbridge.

Now it is hoped that they use that game as a springboard to collect three much-needed points at Crabble on Saturday.
