Dover boss Andy Hessenthaler has condemned abusive messages which were sent to his players from opposing fans ‘who hoped they would die on the way back’ from a postponed match.

The messages were directed towards players and staff after the postponement of Saturday’s National League clash at Barrow.

One of the messages sent from a fan said he hoped the team’s train would crash into the rest of the squad while they were on their way back home.

Whites had set off by train in the morning before being halted at Crewe due to a fatality on the line at Milton Keynes, with services from London Euston being delayed or terminated.

The match, due to take place on the annual Non-League Day, was officially postponed just over an hour before kick-off.
