The Whites have this morning parted company with Mitch Brundle after almost a year at the helm.
The 29-year-old, who put pen to paper on a deal to become permanent manager of the club last January following Andy Hessenthaler’s exit, has been unable to prevent a struggle.
Dover haven’t won since the second game of the National League South season and on Saturday lost to bottom side Havant & Waterlooville.
Chairman Jim Parmenter believes the team can still save themselves from the drop.
But the decision has been made that a new boss will try to kick-start their campaign with more than half the season still to go. Dover travel to Truro City this weekend.
He said in a statement: “I would like to thank Mitch for his tireless efforts during his time at the club, he has worked diligently to try and improve the club’s results.
“Unfortunately, even when we have drawn so many matches those wins have continued to be elusive, therefore it is time to take a different direction. A further statement will be made in due course confirming the new Management structure.”
