Neil Le Bihan, a football legend who played nearly 200 games for Dover Athletic, committed suicide at the age of 47 after a difficult period with his mental health.

Neil Le Bihan, Michaela’s beloved partner and father, died unexpectedly at his residence on October 12, 2023. Neil committed suicide after a difficult time with his mental health, which he had bravely battled for a long time.

Dover Athletic FC released an official statement on Facebook today honoring some of Neil’s greatest accomplishments while donning the storied white jersey of the team from 1997 to 2002.

“The passing of former midfielder Neil Le Bihan saddens the Dover Athletic team. In 1999–2000, Neil was a member of our best midfield ever. Over five seasons (1997-2002), Neil made 171 (+12) competitive appearances and scored 18 goals.”

The people of Crystal Palace, South East London,  the football community, and other groups adore Neil.  He played for the team for five seasons, scored 18 goals, and was well-liked within and outside the football community.

The goal he scored against Cheltenham Town in the FA Trophy Semi-Final Second Leg at Crabble in April 1998 will go down in history as the one for which he will be most known.

In April 2000, he scored the game-winning goal in a 1-0 victory away at Doncaster, and in April 2002, he scored in a rare 3-1 victory away at Stevenage. His legacy will always endure, and his loved ones will dearly miss him.

Thoughts and Condolences to his family, friends, and close companions. The memorial service and funeral details will be shared soon as Michaela and his family request privacy at this extremely trying time. Rest in Peace Neil Le Bihan.
