Youngy wants to give you all the following message:

Hi Dover Fans, just wanted to say thankyou for all your support during last season. It kept us pushing till the very end and it didn’t go unnoticed. On a personal level it was a great season for me gaining lots of experience at a top level in the men’s game. Getting my first league goal against Chelmsford at the back end of the season felt amazing and I look forward to scoring more next season and improving my game all round. Going into the Isthmian Premier League next year i think it’ll be a great opportunity to start a fresh and really prove what we’re about. See you soon, Youngy.
