Fleet look to raise the bar v Barrow

Two home games in four days provides the Fleet with a further opportunity to nail down that elusive first win at the Kuflink Stadium – but fast-improving Barrow and Barnet stand in the way. Barrow are first up, off the back of a 3-0 win over Solihull Moors and a victory at Aldershot the week…

Vanarama Stat Attack: Some facts Fleet fans really should know!

League sponsors Vanarama offer some answers about the actual importance of the first seven weeks of the season… Fleet fans may be viewing the table through their fingers at the moment, but we would look to help ease the early-season anxiety.  There’s some stats about the first six weeks’ strugglers which we need to bring to…

Togetherness is a big thing, says new boy Tyler

Fleet might well still be awaiting a first clean sheet of the campaign, but it’s not been for the want of trying by Tyler Cordner and his teammates in recent weeks. The Bournemouth U23 loanee has been impressive in his three games so far and he put in another assured performance at the heart of…

Go and win the second half!

After a first-half under the cosh for a spell at Woking, Garry Hill’s demand of his players was that they won the second half – and that they did, albeit later than perhaps their manager’s blood pressure preferred. Myles Weston’s goal deep into additional time rescued a point for the Fleet with the league leaders…

Woking 2-2 Fleet

Fleet secured one of their most important and surely most unlikely points of the season as they came back from the dead, two goals down with seven minutes on the clock. Woking missed a penalty after a dominant first-half but when they added a second goal 20 minutes from time, the visitors should have been…

Hill looks to mark his Cards

Garry Hill returns to the club where he won a Conference South title and secured successive Top 10 finishes at National League level, with Woking currently flourishing at the top of the table. The Fleet boss can expect a warm welcome (at least until kick-off!) from a club where he is still highly thought of,…

“Undone by the 1%” says scorer Reid

Like most people inside the Kuflink Stadium, striker Alex Reid felt the minority overruled the majority in refusing the Fleet a penalty – but the minority were the only ones who mattered in the end. “I think probably 99% of the stadium and on the pitch thought it was a penalty,” Reid told BBC Radio…

“I’m hurting for the players tonight”

What a difference a week makes. Last Saturday Garry Hill ordered his players to report for duty the next day and this week the Fleet boss felt for them as they were denied a first home win. “We’ve worked the goalkeeper and we’re still going for the winner at the end,” Hill told BBC Radio…

Fleet 1-1 Eastleigh

Still awaiting a home win and clean sheet, Fleet saw both come mighty close as they led through to the hour mark, at which point the game turned on the referee’s decision not to award the home side a penalty. Fleet were then pegged back by an equaliser and just couldn’t force a winner, though…

Hill makes Holmes permanent

Goalkeeper Jordan Holmes has signed a permanent contract with the Fleet to keep him at the club for the 2019/20 season. The Australian goalkeeper, who signed on a short-term basis last month after leaving Bournemouth in the summer, has put in a number of strong performances since making his debut against Notts County. Following loan…
