Fleet 2 Havant & W 1

The Fleet maintained their grip on second place and closed the gap on leaders Braintree after a hard-fought victory over Havant & Waterlooville. It was a double over the south coast side after Fleet had won the away fixture exactly one month ago. Liam Daish was able to recall Michael West to the starting line-up…

Fleet 4 St Albans City 0

Ebbsfleet United took another giant stride towards the play-off this afternoon and relegated St Albans City in the process with a win that was something of a formality. Liam Daish lost Tom Phipp to injury while Jacob Erskine was on the bench, meaning recalls for Calum Willock and Michael West, while the visitors included Tony…

Fleet 2 Eastleigh 2

Fleet responded from the setback of conceding first to take the lead but they eventually settled for a draw against a strong and impressive Eastleigh side. With Ryan Blake in Wales for U21 duty with Northern Ireland, Liam Daish was forced to reshuffle his defence, recalling Derek Duncan, and he drafted in Joe Howe at…

Farnborough 2 Fleet 4

Ebbsfleet United finished their Blue Square Bet South promotion campaign where they had arguably kick-started it – with their first and last wins of the season both coming at Farnborough’s Rushmoor Stadium. And it was a game that will live long in the memory for Fleet fans as their side bounced back to reclaim their…

Fleet 2 Chelmsford C 1 (6-2)

Almost three years to the day after winning one final, Ebbsfleet United qualified for another.

With only one change to…

Staines Town 0 Fleet 2

Fleet made it two wins in succession on their travels as they eased past Staines Town to rise to third in the table and open up a little more daylight ahead of the likes of Dover, Chelmsford and Eastleigh. Calum Willock missed his first game of the season with a hamstring problem, giving Jacob Erskine…

Chelmsford City 1 Fleet 4

Fleet produced a controlled and confident attacking display to not so much dent as partially demolish Chelmsford’s play-off hopes in tonight’s first-leg semi-final at Melbourne Stadium. A brace each for Michael West and Ricky Shakes saw off a brief second-half revival by the hosts on a wonderful night for Fleet fans. Liam Daish reverted to…

Fleet 1 Woking 1

A weakened Fleet side were unfortunate not to take all three points this afternoon as Woking booked their play-off place with the draw they needed. Liam Daish made several changes, withdrawing Calum Willock, Ram Marwa and Tom Phipp, while Ricky Shakes and Clint Easton dropped to the bench. Daren Hawkes came in for the injured…

Thurrock 0 Fleet 0

Two became one as Fleet’s single point of the Easter period proved enough to take them into the play-offs after Welling and Dover both suffered defeats. In a largely frustrating afternoon during which Tom Phipp and Joe Howe both hit the woodwork in the final 10 minutes, Fleet pressed for the goal that would guarantee…

Fleet 1 Chelmsford C 3

The must-win game for Chelmsford ended in the desired outcome for the visitors as they came back from a goal down to ruin the Fleet’s chances of an early confirmation of a play-off place.
