‘You Never Sing Cos We’re Winning!’

Ryman League Division One South champions Dover Athletic put their success down to the silence of their fans following a pre-season plea by manager Andy Hessenthaler for the fans to remain quiet during matches.

Back in August Hessenthaler said “I’ve got the most nervous bunch of lads I’m ever come across here, but when they’re not jumpy they’re bloody talented, and if the crowd can keep dead still and just whisper any encouragement they’ve got, then there’s no limit to where we can go.”

Small banners featuring tiny, faintly-written slogans are currently the best selling items in the club shop.
