Ex Arsenal players in management: How’s Martin doing at Dover?

Arsenal History Website…… Making the Arsenal …… Arsenal Uncovered …… Arsenal History Society

By Tony Attwood

Martin Hayes is manager of Dover Athletic, who last year had something of a wonder season with their cup run.  This year has started out ok – the club are eighth in the league before the game on 17 September at Woking.

The team started off with two thumping 4-0 wins, but since then it has been a lot harder to score with some 0-0 draws dominating the performances.

Crowds for home games tend to hover around 1000 and the price of entry is £12.00.

Dover’s web site is at http://doverathletic.com/index.php It is interesting stuff, and has been voted Britain’s best non-league web site, but sadly there’s no Martin Hayes column, and no interviews with him, at least as far as I can see.  And since the Arsenal History Site is here at Dover because of Martin that’s what I wanted.  But there’s a great history section (they date back to 1888 – or at least football in the town does).

The link on the site to Football Stats is not good as it leads to Tony Kempster’s site, and that has stopped functioning, following Tony’s illness.  It maybe could be removed.

All of us who remember Martin Hayes at Arsenal wish him and the club well, and we’ll return here later in the season.

Martin played 102 times for Arsenal, and was on the pitch at the final whistle for the Liverpool Arsenal game when we won the league in the last seconds of the 1989 season.  He also won three under 21 caps.
