Nicky Dent (1999/2000)

We all have our favourites, and I have to admit Denty is still mine as far as Invicta goes.

Frank Ovard was great – and surely the most talented player to come out of this area in my lifetime, even if he was born in the Midlands. Arguably Frank also played his best football before Invicta became a force to be rekkconed with.

But Denty – sometime rebel, and booked far too often for the liking of some directors – came to the south east to play for Dover in the early 1990s having played for Bristol Rovers among others in his younger days before Chris Kinnear persuaded him to move up to Kent from Poole Town, I believe.

He once scored from his own half for the Whites – something he also managed on an admittedly windier day for us some years later.

Cugs had him as a player at Ashford and Nick’s goals were crucial on their outstanding FA Cup runs during Neil’s days in charge at Essella Road.

We signed Denty from Hastings for – I think - £4,500 – some of which was paid by the Supporters Club because of one of our many financial crises over the years.

He had – I’m told - fallen out with Mr Kinnear at Dover so Nick always loved scoring goals against Chris’s sides, which for us at this time, was Margate.

Denty formed terrific striking partnerships with a number of our top strikers over the period – Steve Lawrence and Jimmy Dryden particularly, and they were good days on the field for the club in the years either is of the Millennium.

His ability to muller the ball as hard as he did with little or no back-lift was amazing.

A super player who swept the board in our awards for this particular season.
