“I wouldn’t have been happy even with a draw”

Dennis Kutrieb was angry at the manner of his side’s late defeat at Hampton having underlined before kick-off the need to eliminate mistakes. In a tight encounter on a pitch that was cutting up as the game wore on, a mistake was always likely to provide a breakthrough for either side. “It was terrible and…

Hampton & Richmond Borough 2-1 Fleet

Fleet were frustrated after Hampton seized all three points with a goal in time added on, after the visitors had come from behind late on to equalise. Dennis Kutrieb’s side should have led at the break when Rakish Bingham’s conversion at the far post was deemed offside despite him appearing to be at least level…

PREVIEW: from Beachboys to Beavers

Fleet take their midweek form against the Beachboys into Saturday’s clash with the Beavers this weekend seeking the three points that would not only take them within one point of their hosts but potentially back inside the top seven as well.

Chapman’s jump gives Fleet new bounce

Ben Chapman’s versatility was well known on signing for the Fleet in the summer, the former Dulwich midfielder equally at home in the middle or at full-back. And his goals in pre-season and on the opening day suggested something of a goalscoring knack to his game as well. Since the turn of the year, Chapman…

Fleet 2-1 Concord Rangers

“Missing the big chances hurt us”

A first 45 minutes that was “not good enough” was the difference between the teams on Tuesday night, said Fleet boss Dennis Kutrieb. He praised his side’s second-half efforts, with the visitors firing eight shots on target and 10 off to Dorking’s five and six respectively but acknowledged that without taking those opportunities, it handed…

Dorking Wanderers 2-0 Fleet

Fleet’s first ever trip to Dorking ended in defeat as the home side’s first-half clinical finishing did the damage. A second goal on the stroke of half-time gave the visitors a mountain to climb after the break and though Fleet had the bulk of the game in the second half, they couldn’t register on the…
