Dover Athletic Community Trust is a charity affiliated to Dover Athletic Football Club (reg. charity no. 1179651). We were established in August 2018 to enable the football club's objective to become an integral part of its local community and to make a positive difference within the Dover District. The trust builds on the platform of club community initiatives and is now embarking on a strategy to offer wellbeing initiatives in and around Dover. This naturally starts with sport related programmes and will soon stretch beyond sport and into new realms of physical and mental health. The trust also aligns itself to its local stakeholders and will work closely with Dover District Council to ensure it can assist in delivering the councils key health and wellbeing objectives also.
Temple Ewell school represented Dover Athletic Football Club at the National League Trust Southern regional tournament at Sutton Utd FC on Thursday 14th February.
On a glorious day the boys had to play against sides from Bromley, Hampton and Richmond, Welling and Slough. The team, made up of 4 year 6s, 3 year 5s and a year 4 competed in a year 6 competition and more than held their own. They were handed a tough first game against a very talented Welling side, and managed to come away with a 0-0 draw. They lost the next game 2-0 to a strong Bromley team, before unluckily losing 1-0 to Slough in a game where they were on top for most of it. Finally they drew 1-1 with Hampton and Richmond levelling with an absolute screamer from Owen.
