A Shot at redemption

Fleet will be looking for their first win at the Kuflink Stadium this season but line up against an Aldershot side desperate not to allow themselves to be leapfrogged by Garry Hill’s men in a weekend that sees two clashes between sides in the bottom five. The boss has long believed that a couple of…

Holmes stays home to concentrate on Fleet

New goalkeeper Jordan Holmes has skipped the forthcoming international break with Australia to stay in England with Ebbsfleet United. The 22-year-old, who has played in the last two games for the Fleet, is the U23 goalkeeper for his native country with his sights set on competing for the Olyroos in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. But…

Lucky charm Gozie reopens his account

The last time Gozie Ugwu scored for the Fleet – against Wrexham – was the last time fans cheered a National League victory. Indeed, bar one game out of seven in which he’s scored, Fleet have won every time Ugwu has found the net and this afternoon was no exception. Ugwu pounced on 18 minutes…

I’ll donate that to the supporters

Garry Hill dedicated his side’s first win of the season to the jubilant Fleet fans, with 172 making the Bank Holiday journey to Hertfordshire. “Where do I want to donate that to?” he asked BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Wesbter. “The supporters.

Boreham Wood 1-2 Fleet

Fleet got the morale-boosting win the fans have craved throughout August as they kept Boreham Wood at bay to move off the bottom of the table.

Sutherland senses momentum

Fleet’s new midfield signing Frankie Sutherland has said if his new teammates can build momentum, that will be key in a rise up the table. The former Bromley man helped Fleet see out the final 20 minutes on top against Notts County and with his previous experience at this level, he knows what it takes…

“We had to get some reward”

Garry Hill was satisfied with the point his side carved out against Notts County but admitted to mixed feelings with the possibility of a win tantalisingly close in the final minutes of Saturday’s game. “As much as I wanted to win here today, the number one thing was making sure we had some reward for…

Fleet 2-2 Notts County

It’s doubtful whether the home faithful have greeted a point with such an outpouring of relief and joy but Fleet came from behind twice and scored twice for the first time this season to move off zero points. And it was the least Garry Hill’s men deserved in a pulsating, blisteringly hot second half that…

A new home for Holmes

Fleet have added their second signing of the week with the capture of Australian U23 goalkeeper Jordan Holmes, following international clearance coming through. The 6ft 3in Sydney-born stopper played for Rockdale City and Sydney United at youth level in his homeland before moving to England to sign for Bournemouth in 2013. He progressed through the…
