*BS*DALE SKELTON has left Dover Athletic by mututal consent – and signed for Hythe.

*BF*Skelts has come through the youth system at Crabble and made a number of first-team appearances during the past few seasons.

But he has decided that his future lies elsewhere, with first-team chances likely to be limited for the popular local midfielder.

Chairman Jim Parmenter said: “It was decided by both parties that it would be better for his career to leave Dover Athletic.

“We agreed it mutually and we wish him every luck at Hythe. His chances of realistically holding down a place in the first-team were slim.
