*BS*WHO ate all the pies …

*BF*Well, no fret … they are back. The pies, which were withdrawn from sale at Dover’s football church that is Crabble several years ago, have been reinstated by chairman Jim Parmenter and the board.

Director Chris Oakley has been on a mission to help assist the club in restoring the old favourite and a solution has finally been found.

Local homemade pies from a bakery will now be available on matchdays. Chicken and two other fillings yet to be confirmed will be on sale to warm fans up during the upcoming long winter.

And that is not all … a new Meal Deal of PIE and chips – plus a pint of Fosters – all for just £5.50 will also be available at the Centre Spot.

There is more good news for fans who like to enjoy a refreshing pint of cider. We have cut the price to £3-a-pint on matchdays.

Jim told doverathletic.com: “The pies are back by popular demand. We’ve had a long look at it and decided to give our fans what they want.

“We have listened to feedback and hope everyone will be pleased that we’ve been able to bring back an old favourite.

“Cider, meanwhile, has been hit by duty rises in recent years – but we’ve managed to secure a deal where we’ve got it cheaper. We were keen to pass the savings we made back to our fans – so I am delighted we’ve been able to bring the price of Strongbow down.”
