Dover Athletic manager Chris Kinnear hoping for new signing Stefan Payne to continue prolific form in front of goal

05 June 2014
by Richard Harvey

Dover boss Chris Kinnear has backed former Gillingham striker Stefan Payne to deliver the goals that were in short supply last season.

Payne, who joined Whites on a one-year deal this week, scored 31 goals in 46 appearances for Ryman Premier side, AFC Hornchurch, last season.

That prolific form in front of goal is what Kinnear hopes Payne can repeat in Dover’s first season back in Conference South after a 12-year absence.

Kinnear said: “Well, that would be ideal.

“We struggled at times to put the ball in the back of the net last season, so hopefully Stefan will help resolve that issue.

“He’s lively and he can score goals - his performance last season is proof of that.

“There is no question he’ll certainly give us another option up front.”
