New Manager: Aslanís replacement is Chris Lynch who is currently Head of Youth Development at Dover FC Youth Section, where he is held in high regard having built the highly successful Youth Development Program. Chris impressed the committee with his knowledge and vision for the club. Chris is a qualified UEFA & FA Licensed coach who began his career at Dover/Whitstable and in his time with them represented Kent. He had trials with Luton in 1996 and then went on to Watford under Graham Taylor 3 years later. Both Manchester United and Aston Villa showed keen interest in Chris throughout the 90's, however a serious accident put paid to his playing career. Although having previous managerial experience, this is Chrisís first managerial position at this level.
