Dover defender Sean Raggett always wanted to be a striker when he was younger like his idol, Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
That never materialised but Henry, or any other striker, would have been proud of Raggett’s stunning strike during Tuesday night’s 2-0 Vanarama Conference win against Wrexham at Crabble – which saw Dover move up to eighth.
Raggett scored Dover’s second goal with a sensational half-volley from 18 yards in the 35th minute after Wrexham goalkeeper Andy Coughlin’s poor punch from Liam Bellamy’s cross had landed invitingly for him.
The 6ft 5in defender fired the ball home to score what he said was the best of his career.
He said: “I hit it so sweet. As soon as I connected, I knew it was going straight in.
“It feels great to score a goal as good as that. I’ve copped a bit of stick from the lads but I can take it.”
Dover’s third consecutive win extended their unbeaten league run to 13 games and sees boss Chris Kinnear’s side just three points off the play-off places.
