The 32-year-old, whose contract with the Fleet is up at the end of June, leaves having completed two and a half seasons in the red shirt. Wilson joined the club after leaving Port Vale in January…

The year it rained goals

There wasn’t much of a bounce around Stonebridge Road as summer 1992 approached.

Hair today, gone tomorrow

As we still await the go-ahead for a new football season, the wider lockdown is easing, including a re-opening date for the hospitality sector and hairdressers.

This resolution was very similar to the draft resolutions put to clubs late last week. It did, however, contain a difference in intent, with an allowance for play-offs to take place in the National Leagues…
