Interest Grows In Dover Goal King Ricky

Dover Athletic may face a huge task to be playing in the Football League next season but it seems Ricky Miller, their striker, does not.

The Vanarama National League Player Of The Year is out of contract in the summer and a move to League One seems almost certain.

Portsmouth, the League Two promotion winners, and Bristol Rovers are two clubs that are very keen to take Miller on in the summer.

Miller’s Crabble deal ends in May and there is said to be no chance at all of him signing a new contract.

His 37 goals have kept the club on track for promotion but they need an unlikely swing this weekend to take their place in the top five.

Aldershot will need to lose at home to Braintree while the Whites would also be required to thrash Barrow away from home if they are to have any chance of taking the final slot.

Notts County are another club known to want the former Luton Town striker, as are Millwall – who have a history of signing Non-League players.

Peterborough United do as well but relations with Dover chairman Jim Parmenter are said to be frosty.

Gillingham, managed for by Forest Green manager Adrian Pennock, is keen to bring the player to Priestfield.  

Long-term fan Danny Cowley will try again to take the striker to Lincoln City but are underdogs with the club unable to compete with the likes of Pompey when it comes to salary.
