Dover Hope It's A White Christmas Under New Management

Dover Athletic say unity is the only way they’ll get themselves out of the sticky situation they find themselves in after putting in place their new management team.

Last week the White parted company with Mitch Brundle after almost a year at the helm.

They’ve moved to steady the ship with the club’s former player Jake Leberl and academy boss Mike Sandmann charged with keeping the team in the National League South.

Dover are second bottom, haven’t won since mid-August and in their last outing lost to bottom side Havant & Waterlooville.

That cost Brundle his job and now Jim Parmenter believes the team can still save themselves from the drop if fans get behind the new bosses.

He told fans: “Neither Jake nor Mike need any introduction to supporters and they bring with them enormous combined knowledge and experience.

“They begin their task with immediate effect and further changes, and additions, will be announced in due course. Our supporters will be invaluable as we begin the huge challenge in front of us and I urge everyone to get behind the team as our 12th man.”

They face a tough task in their first match with a home game against promotion-chasing Bath City.

Then comes a home game with Weymouth before a Christmas double header with Aveley.
