Life’s a gas for returning Payne

If one photo this year summed up the incongruous nature of football amidst the coronavirus, it was Josh Payne shaking hands with gas-mask-sporting Fleet supporter Jon Wood as the club’s last game at FC Halifax Town became the final match in Western Europe to kick-off before a continental shutdown. Payne may have inadvertently become the…

Midfield mates – “We encouraged each other to sign!” says Mekki

Adam Mekki’s return to the Fleet had been simmering even despite the premature ending of his loan period last season and the club’s latest acquisition revealed he and midfield colleague Josh Payne had egged each other on to sign up at the Kuflink Stadium. “I got close with a couple of the lads driving in…

Mekki makes Ebbsfleet return journey

Adam Mekki is back at the Kuflink Stadium, this time on a permanent basis, as the Fleet unveiled the latest new signing. The wide midfielder has already shown Fleet fans just what he can do during a loan spell from Bromley last season when he played eight times for the club through January and February….

“An extremely hard decision” as Timlin moves on

Michael Timlin will not be returning to the Kuflink Stadium for the 2020/21 season as he moves on to take up “the only option that would have seen me leave Ebbsfleet”.

Match Rewind v Notts County, 2003

When the Notts County ball emerged from the FA Cup velvet bag immediately after ourselves in November 2003, Fleet fans could have been forgiven for feeling a little bit blasé about it. After all, with promotion to the Conference in the intervening time and having played the Magpies only three short years before, it didn’t…

Derby days ahead for the latest local boy

He’s played for Gillingham, was man of the match in their Kent Senior Cup semi-final at Maidstone and Aylesford boy Ben Chapman is savouring the many local derbies ahead in the National South. The nearest the former Dulwich Hamlet midfielder got to a local derby last season was probably against Welling United but now he…

Chapman the next man in Fleet’s plan

Fleet haven’t had to look far for the eighth signing this summer as Kent-born midfielder Ben Chapman becomes the latest to put pen to paper at the Kuflink Stadium. The Aylesford 21-year-old has played much of his football in Kent after leaving Crystal Palace as a youngster, going on to play for Bearsted and Gillingham…

Tobi itching to be getting going again

It’s been a longer summer than usual for everyone connected with the game and new Fleet arrival Tobi Adebayo-Rowling is impatient to set foot in the Kuflink Stadium and kick a ball in anger. The defender’s last game was on March 14th when he played 90 minutes and kept a clean sheet as Eastbourne Borough…

Signing seven adds to Kutrieb’s wide options

Ebbsfleet United are pleased to announce the latest addition to Dennis Kutrieb’s growing squad as former Eastbourne Borough player of the year Tobi Adebayo-Rowling has put pen to paper. The versatile 23-year-old defender is equally at home as a right full-back or further upfield operating at wing-back. A former Brighton and Peterborough United youth team…
