Liam Bellamy scored his first goal of the season in Dover's crushing 6-1 win against Kent rivals Dartford in the Vanarama Conference clash at Crabble last Saturday.

Bellamy’s goal was Dover’s fourth of the day and it was a fitting way for the midfielder to open his account.

He picked up the ball not far inside his own half before heading off towards the visitors goal.

Bellamy, 23, who joined Whites from Ebbsfleet in the summer of 2013, then beat several challenges before firing low past Darts goalkeeper Deren Ibrahim.

When the ball it the back of the net, there was no stopping Bellamy - he was off celebrating with his team-mates in hot pursuit.

He said: “I was so happy to score as it has been a while - the emotions just kicked in and I raced away.”

But did Bellamy have his mind set on going for goal when he first got the ball?

He said: “When I got it (the ball), they (the defenders) stood off me so I thought I’d go for it - it proved to be the right option.”

Bellamy said Whites’ performance, especially the second half one, was really impressive given how wet and muddy the surface was.

He said: “I couldn’t believe how wet it was to be honest. The ball just wouldn’t go anywhere - it would stop dead.

“The conditions made it really tough and we had some tired legs at the end of it but winning three points is just reward for another great team performance.”
