The ‘Gate face a Dover side who despite a host of departures this summer have recruited well including former Bromley striker Tobi-Sho-Silva. The Whites have enjoyed a storming pre-season so far with huge wins over Welling United and Folkestone Invicta.
Margate Manager Steve Watt is looking forward to the test. “It is going to be a tough test against a very good side”.
“We are missing a few of the lads but it will be a good test for us against a National League side who will do very well this season. Obviously missing a few players isn’t ideal but that the nature of pre-season so we will give it a good go but ultimately it is about players getting more minutes on the pitch in a match environment”.
“Throughout the course of the season you will lose players through injury and suspension so it will be a good test for that type of scenario throughout the season”.
Kick off at Crabble is 2pm but as always if you can’t be there then you can stay right up to date on the clubs official Twitter feed @margate_fc from 1pm.
