Dover Athletic Football Club is an association football club formed in 1983, based in the town of Dover, Kent, England. In the 1989–90 season Dover Athletic won the Southern League championship, but failed to gain promotion to the Football Conference as the club's ground did not meet the required standard. Three seasons later the team won the title again and this time gained promotion to the Conference, where they spent nine seasons before being relegated. The club was transferred to the Isthmian League Premier Division in 2004, but another poor season led the club to a further relegation. After three seasons in the Isthmian League Division One South, the club won the championship and promotion back to the Premier Division, and the following season won another championship and promotion to Conference South. In the 2013–14 season, Dover defeated Ebbsfleet United to return to the Conference Premier after a twelve-year absence. Nicknamed the Whites for their white shirts, they have played at the Crabble Athletic Ground since the club's formation. Their best performance in the FA Cup was reaching the third round proper in both the 2010–11 and 2014–15 seasons. (Full article...)
