Dover Athletic manager Chris Kinnear says the debate over 3G pitches is none of his business

Chris Kinnear says the 3G debate is none of his business.

Dover are set to vote against allowing 3G pitches in the Conference when clubs decide at a meeting on Wednesday.

Kinnear’s former club Maidstone have been lobbying the Conference for months in a bid to get their artificial pitch at the Gallagher Stadium accepted should they win promotion from the Ryman League, Premier Division.

Whites boss Kinnear said: “Our chairman (Jim Parmenter) has already said he’s against it but it makes no difference to us because we’re not planning to put 3G down at Crabble.

“It’s up to each club what they want to do but I can’t see the vote getting through because a lot of clubs are against it. I don’t have time to worry about it and it’s none of my business.

“I don’t know enough about it to have an opinion. We train on it but we’ve never played a competitive game on it.”
