Heard the one about a pirate, a parrot and a piggy?

Club mascots up and down the nation have banded together for a lockdown video and like any collection of England’s leading clubs, the Fleet are represented. None other than Ebbsfleet club mascot Hooky the Pirate (Graham Major on the odd times he’s not in costume) features alongside fellow mascots from clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool, Ipswich…

Season Review Part 8: February

Like every month in 2019/20, February came with its fair share of pain but enough pleasure to keep the Fleet’s fight going into the final months (or as it turned out, month – singular) of the season. Much-improved Sutton United came to the Kuflink Stadium on the first day of February having escaped with a…

Academy striker in NHS charity bid

Fleet academy frontman Jack Hardy has teamed up with rival Maidstone United player Alfie Whitnell with the pair aiming to run more than 200km in two weeks and raise funds alongside the effort. Hardy, 17, led the line for the Fleet in our Kent Senior Cup tie at Ramsgate earlier in the year and together…

Season Review Part 7: January

If December’s two points put Fleet’s hold on National League status in jeopardy then the start of January did little to aid that cause – which made the side’s huge efforts thereafter all the more impressive. The rematch against Dagenham & Redbridge to start the new year and decade was almost a carbon copy of…

Season Review Part 6: December

Despite a couple of setbacks in November, the month had ended on a high with the home win over Wrexham and the battle for survival not at all insurmountable given the relatively small points gap amongst the bottom clubs. A visit to Eastleigh was first up on Fleet’s Advent calendar with the Spitfires looking to…

Season Review Part 5: November

The onset of November might usually be a time for hunkering down for four months of winter misery but as October made way, Fleet fans were feeling at their most upbeat since the season kicked-off. Three wins in succession at the end of the previous month and a squad that was beginning to settle with…

Season Review Part 4: October

If there’d been a topical song at the Kuflink Stadium in October then it would have been David Bowie’s Changes such were the modifications around the club during the month. And it all started within the first four days of October. The first alert that change was in the air came with the season-long loan…

Season Review Part 3: September

It was Month #2 of the new season and already the reality was sinking in for management, players and fans alike with the defeat at home to Aldershot Town meaning the squad were ordered in for Sunday training as September dawned. With a far-from-settled squad, Garry Hill continued in his efforts to strengthen and Bondz…

Season Review Part 2: August

Not that skipper Jack King needed any kind of redemption after his 8th-minute sending-off against FC Halifax Town on the opening day of the season – but the fact the 34-year-old defender was named man-of-the-match against the same opposition on what turned out to be the last day of the season encapsulated exactly the Fleet’s…

On This Day: April 25th

So here we are then. The final matchday of the abortive season that would have seen us travel to Aldershot Town, scene of two of the greatest Fleet triumphs of the 21st century. It’s a date that has served as the end of the season numerous times before, with two notable games in 2013 and…
