On This Day: April 10th

It’s Good Friday and with Boreham Wood the intended visitors, we instead look back again to previous April 10th encounters, the most recent of which was a memorable display under the lights against Wrexham that put us into the driving seat towards the play-offs… 10th April 1955 Fleet 2-2 Cheltenham TownJust two months into his…

Fleet to join in the 5k for £5 challenge

Fleet’s Lawrie Wilson is extending his drive for NHS donations to the Fleet squad and fans, with a call to run 5km and donate £5 to the NHS. It’s a funding effort that has already begun to gather pace amongst players of clubs up and down the country on social media and via Lawrie’s running…

Mark my words and do the right thing

As the coronavirus crisis continues to grip the world, one ex-Fleet player has experienced the stark realities of COVID-19 rather more closely than most of us in lockdown.

On This Day: March 28th

On a day that we all wish we were playing at Yeovil Town, perhaps we should take some solace in the fact that March 28th has never been particularly kind to the Fleet! Of the 15 times we’ve played on this day, the Fleet have won on just two occasions – in 1959 and 1970!…
