Clarification

The club wishes to clarify one point from Friday night’s meeting relating to the fraud of £150,000 quoted in the notes.

It’s going to go to the wire, says Fleet boss

In a hurry to catch the train back south, Garry Hill was uncharacteristically shorter on words than usual after Fleet’s 1-1 draw at Gateshead.

Weston: with the fans behind us, we keep going

Fresh from terrorising the Wrexham defence from his left-wing berth, Myles Weston declared he was pleased to “give something back” to the fans for their backing. Weston, whose cross was deflected over the line by Wrexham skipper Shaun Pearson for the opening goal, has been in a rich vein of form lately and he’s spurred…

We’ll always give it our best, says King

Fleet defender Jack King says the one thing that can never be doubted about his teammates is their commitment and desire to succeed. The stand-in skipper and his defence withstood plenty of Wrexham pressure, particularly late on in the second half, but he believes this squad isn’t one to waver. The victory might have been…

It’s a very special squad, says proud boss

Garry Hill saw his Ebbsfleet side fly out of the traps against Wrexham having spent the pre-match warm up inside the changing rooms – and the experienced manager declared it one of the best squads he has worked with.
