Dover Athletic

Win Rate: 43% (from 23 games)

Last Updated: 06 July 2021

Dover Athletic are, let’s face it, the closest to European football that we’ve come so far; 1987 being the first time we met. Our relationship became much deeper when we went up to the Conference; sharing eight seasons before The Whites were relegated at the end of the 2001-2 season. We did get to fit in a quick 2009-10 FA Trophy tie before we left non-league behind. Now, the Whites are back in the National League and keeping themselves in the hunt for promotion – if still falling slightly short each season.

Dover Athletic Travel Information – Distance: 109 miles

By Road

The easiest way to get to Dover is via the M25 and M2/A2. You can use the M20 if you so choose, although it is a little further and a little longer. We’ll keep it simple by choosing the former and should make sure you complete the trek in under a couple of hours.

Take the clockwise M25 round to and across the Dartford Crossing. Come off the M25 on the other side for the coastbound A2. Continue to follow it onto the M2 and back again when the motorway ends on the other side of Faversham. As you approach Dover, take the fourth exit at a roundabout for the A256 for Dover (North)/River/Temple Ewell.

After a mile, take the first exit at the roundabout and continue on the A256. There’s a sharp right after 0.7 miles for Crabble Road that you need to take, however, with the ground up on the left as the hill snakes round to the right.

Your best option for parking at Dover is to use local streets.

By Rail


Kearnsey is the nearest station to the Crabble – but it calls for a numbers of changes if coming from Stevenage. The quickest trip is timed at slightly more than two-and-a-half hours; changing at Dover Priory. Some may indeed prefer to get off at Dover Priory.

The trip – as dictated by National Rail – involves a service from London St Pancras to Ashford International; Ashford International to Dover Priory; and then Dover Priory to Kearnsey. You can get to Dover Priory on a direct service from Charing Cross, though; Kearnsey from London Victoria is possible on a direct service too.

From the station, head southeast on Alkham Road and turn right to stay on that road. Keep on Lower Road for nearly a mile, before turning right onto Crabble Road. Follow the road around to the right as it goes up the hill; bearing left through the park to the ground.
