Luton Town 3 Fleet 0

Fleet goalkeeper Tom McNeil (pictured) made his full debut in front of the biggest crowd his side have faced this season but couldn’t prevent an injury- and suspension-hit side from defeat at play-off chasers Luton Town.

Fleet 3 AFC Telford United 2

Fleet held on for a creditable victory against AFC Telford United this afternoon despite playing 73 minutes of the game with only 10 men.

Fleet 1 Kettering Town 0

Fleet cemented their mid-table position with a somewhat laborious victory over struggling Kettering Town – but missed several gilt-edged chances in the process. With one change to the starting line-up, Liam Bellamy replacing Tom Phipp, Fleet could certainly boast a strong substitute’s bench with the returning Calum Willock and Ram Marwa joining Phipp on the…

Darlington 0 Fleet 2

A clinical second-half performance which saw two goals in as many minutes gave the Fleet their second successive win in the north-east. With Lance Cronin’s loan extended to the end of April due to Preston Edwards’ ankle injury, which rules him out for the rest of the season, Fleet were forced into that change while…
