Tim Dixon's Third Summer Signing, Dave Pilcher

Making an impressive debut in Saturday’s friendly with Ashford United was Tim Dixon’s third new signing since taking over the reigns at Reachfields.


Dave Pilcher is a talented young central midfielder, who joined Dover Athletic Youth Section from Gillingham in 2011.


He went on to impress for Dover Under 19s during the 2011/12 campaign and as a result earned a call-up to the Academy squad.


Dave was one of a number of Academy players who joined the Dover Athletic 1st Team during pre-season in 2012.


He then went on to take part in all of the Whites' pre-season squads and was on the fringe of the 1st Team going into the 2012/13 season.


Talking following our first game of the new season, Tim Dixon said - “Dave started his career in the youth set-up at Gillingham before joining his home town club Dover Athletic. He attended their Academy at the Abbey school, whilst gaining valuable senior experience with Ramsgate FC in the Ryman League and scoring a few goals from midfield in the process.”


“He is excellent at set-pieces and a very good passer of the ball, the management team rate him very highly and now it’s down to him to establish himself at Hythe Town. I believe he has every attribute needed to go further in the game.”


Welcome to ‘The Cannons’ Dave!
