FA Cup 4th Round Qualifying – The FA Cup is a wonderful thing I do think that. I just like the immediateness of the whole thing, away from any league pressures. Simply you win, you continue. Dovers 2017 Emirites FA Cup campaign got underway on 14th October at home to Bromely FC. The last time they met each other in the league Bromely ran out winners. So the home side were out to prove a point. The game ran out a goalless draw and moves to a replay. But the game wasn’t without it its action. Here are a few of my favorites, theres a bigger gallery here.
OCTOBER 14: Dover’s defender Femi Ilesanmi takes a shot on goal and Bromely’s Roger Johnson tries to get in the way!

Finally, I particularly like this frame.
OCTOBER 14: As Dover’s defender Josh Passley makes a run down the wing. Bromely’s manager Neil Smith thinks its a good idea to start shouting at Bromely’s Frankie Raymond which distracts him!
