Club won the Southern League title in 1990 and again in 1993, gaining promotion to the Conference where the club spent nine seasons.
Whites paid a then non-league record £50,000 for striker David Leworthy from Farnborough Town in August 1993.
Eventually relegated in 2002, Whites finished third in their first season back in the Southern League Premier Division - but disaster struck and Dover were relegated the following season, finishing fourth from bottom.
Things only got worse, as Dover finished second from bottom in 2004/05 of the Ryman Premier - leaving the club in the fourth tier of non-league football for the first time in its history.
A new board took over in January 2004 and immediately cleared huge debts - and Whites are now financially stable and ambitious to once again climb back up the non-league football ladder.
