Dover Athletic FC v Wrexham FC – So the 2018 season got underway. However, it wasn’t the result that Dover were looking for loosing by a goal to nothing.
Probably, even more galling was the fact they could have been winners. If it was not for possibly the weakest penalty I have ever seen that was saved as a result and having a goal disallowed by a questionable decision. But this is football and there is a long, long way to go yet! Here are a few of my favorites from the game.

I think its far too early to start making any far reaching statements, there is a load of talent in the new Dover squad given time I am convinced they will be right up there.
