Dover were 6-3 winners over Farnborough in an incredible Blue Square Bet South game on Saturday.

Paul Booth opened the scoring for the visitors when he tucked the ball under Whites keeper Ross Flitney, but the home side were able to level through Adam Birchall.

Harry Baker was fouled in the penalty area and although Birchall's spot-kick was pushed onto the post by keeper Dominique Jean-Zepherin he scored the rebound.

But Kezie Ibe restored Farnborough's lead before the break when he scored after Luke I'Anson dwelt on the ball for too long on the edge of his own area.

Birchall was the scorer and provider the next two goals.

Zepherin was unable to deal with his shot and Charles volleyed in the equaliser to make it 2-2. He then latched on to a I'Anson pass and fired the ball into the bottom corner of the net and give his side the lead.

Farnborough were able to equalise again through Ibe, before Dover hit a further three goals without reply.

Jon Wallis curled the ball into the net for the fourth, before Birchall struck to complete his hat-trick.

A curling shot from Baker then wrapped up the scoring in a memorable afternoon at Crabble.
