He helped the club climb from the Ryman Premier Division to the National League, making the winning penalty save from Danny Kedwell in the National South play-off final.

Stones chief executive Bill Williams said: "Lee has been a wonderful servant of the club.

“He’s played a massive role in getting us to the level of football we’re at and given many hours of pleasure to our supporters over the past five or so years.

“Because of that loyal service, the club have reluctantly agreed to release him.

“The offer he’s had to join Dover’s management team provides security for his family as they prepare for the arrival of their firstborn and he was adamant he wanted start a new life in a coaching capacity.

“He leaves with our blessing and best wishes, and remains a good friend of the club.”

Worgan's replacement is Lincoln City goalkeeper Grant Smith, who's joined on loan until the end of December.

Smith helped Boreham Wood reach the National League play-off final last season.

He's set to make his debut at Ebbsfleet tomorrow night.
