Can Fleet create trouble at Mill?

Mill Farm is the bookies’ favourite destination for where the Vanarama trophy will end up in April but Fleet go there buoyed by two new signings, having spent the past two games trying to scrape together enough bodies to fill the bench. And with the return from suspension of skipper Jack King, Garry Hill is…

The name’s Bondz…

Garry Hill has added his second new recruit to the Fleet squad ahead of this weekend’s trip to AFC Fylde. Experienced central defender Bondz N’Gala, who spent last season with Crawley Town in League Two, becomes the 20th member of the Fleet squad and will wear the No.20 shirt that Academy player Emilio Regini-Moran was…

Brandon lands in time for Fylde visit

Ebbsfleet United are pleased to announce the first of two signings today with the capture of former MK Dons striker Brandon Thomas-Asante. The 20-year-old was with his hometown club for eight years, progressing through the Academy to the first-team and was twice rewarded with extended contracts by the League One club. He scored his first…

Garry Hill talks patience and pressure

Garry Hill may still be waiting for his first points of the season after Fleet fell to Bromley at Hayes Lane on Tuesday night but it’s not a situation that is going to faze the manager. “We are short on bodies,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “You see our bench tonight, we are…

Bromley 3-1 Fleet

Hayes Lane continued to confound the Fleet as Bromley ran out convincing winners, scoring two quick fire first-half goals that left the visitors with a mountain to climb. With Jack King suspended, Fleet were forced into deploying James Ball in defence once more, Sean Shields coming in which in turn forced John Goddard to tuck…

A short hop to close the gap

It’s not far for Fleet’s first away day this season as Bromley’s Westminster Waste Stadium (Hayes’ Lane’s new moniker as of last summer) plays host to the opening Kent derby of 2019/20. And Fleet will want to quickly rid themselves of the memory of their last two games: Saturday’s 4-1 reverse at home to FC…

Hill: “I hope we go home hurting – and respond”

It was little surprise that Garry Hill’s post-match thoughts were far from favourable as Fleet fell to their biggest opening-day reverse since 1990. “I think we’ve seen it all today,” Hill told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “A very hard game to sum up. You look forward as a manager, as a player, as a…

Fleet 1-4 FC Halifax Town

It’s been 14 years since the Shaymen won their only game at the Fleet and they did so on that occasion by three goals as well. This time, they took full advantage of Fleet’s self-inflicted nightmare opening spell and with 10 men for the best part of 80 minutes, the home side were always up…

On your marks…

A new season that will pass into a new decade amidst a new era for the Fleet, 2019/20 gets under way with the visit of FC Halifax Town this Saturday. Expectation, optimism, uncertainty – it’s all there up and down the National League tomorrow but it’s at the Kuflink Stadium where it matters most as…
