Fleet 0-1 Dover Athletic

Fleet 0-1 Dover Athletic

Dover Athletic returned to the Conference Premier for the first time in 12 years as Nathan Elder returned to haunt the Fleet, grabbing the only goal of the game to separate two sides whose destinies seemed to have been interwoven all season. Elder’s second-half header broke Fleet hearts in a poor game that failed to live up to its pre-match…

Dover Athletic 0-4 Fleet

Dover Athletic 0-4 Fleet

Steve Brown won it as a player, now it will be remembered as his first piece of silverware as a manager. The Fleet won the Kent Senior Cup in its historic 125th year to see their name engraved on the trophy for the eighth time, ending a six-year wait for success in the county cup. As expected, there were myriad…

Bromley 1-0 Fleet (agg. 1-4)

Bromley 1-0 Fleet (agg. 1-4)

Ebbsfleet United booked a date with destiny – and Dover Athletic – on home soil next Saturday with the ultimate prize at this level at stake: promotion to the Conference Premier. It was hardly vintage stuff at Hayes Lane as Fleet fell to a single-goal defeat but it didn’t need to be, with the four-goal cushion from the first leg…

Fleet 4-0 Bromley

Fleet 4-0 Bromley

Some fans believed they’d seen the best display of the season last Saturday. Some would have settled for half the 4-0 scoreline tonight. Few would have dared dream their side would repeat the result and better the performance in the first leg of a play-off semi-final. But Fleet did that and more, racing into a 2-0 lead inside eight minutes…

Fleet 4-0 Dorchester Town

Fleet 4-0 Dorchester Town

A much-changed Fleet side cantered to an entertaining 4-0 win over relegated Dorchester Town this afternoon to confirm a play-off semi-final against Bromley. A first-half brace from Daryl McMahon set Fleet up nicely, and goals one after the other in the second half from Michael Thalassitis and Alex Osborn put the seal on a fine display that could have seen…

Concord Rangers 1-2 Fleet

Concord Rangers 1-2 Fleet

An astonishing climax to this replayed Concord Rangers fixture saw Fleet finally over the line and into the play-offs – courtesy of a dramatic, late Preston Edwards penalty save and superb strikes from Anthony Cook and Daryl McMahon. After a Concord equaliser 17 minutes from time, it seemed confirmation of that play-off place would be further delayed, until Daryl McMahon’s…

Maidenhead United 1-0 Fleet

Maidenhead United 1-0 Fleet

Relegation-haunted Maidenhead United showed iron resolve and stood firm in the face of an Ebbsfleet side desperate to confirm their play-off place before a possibly frenetic final few days of the season. That, however, did not come to pass and as a result of this defeat at York Road, Fleet head into the final weekend needing one win to guarantee…

Fleet 1-0 Eastbourne Borough

Fleet 1-0 Eastbourne Borough

Ebbsfleet United maintained their unbeaten record against Eastbourne Borough – but more importantly cemented their play-off spot – as Anthony Cook’s 48th minute strike earned Steve Brown’s side maximum points. In a game in which Fleet were largely on top but the visitors adept at soaking up the pressure, it always seemed likely a single goal would win it. And…

Concord Rangers A-A Fleet (0-2)

Concord Rangers A-A Fleet (0-2)

Just when it looked as if Fleet’s play-off challenge had taken a turn for the better, the lights went out on Steve Brown’s squad – literally. It recalled a similar incident on a previous occasion when Fleet were battling for promotion and in the same part of the world with the same scoreline – back in 2002 when Fleet led…

Sutton United 3 Fleet 1

Sutton United 3 Fleet 1

Ebbsfleet United will be hoping that the pre-match billing of this game as a play-off ‘dress rehearsal’ proves to be exactly that – but first Fleet have to step up a gear and clinch that play-off spot following a Sutton fightback that all but ensured their own interest in the end-of-season lottery. Steve Brown was forced into a change in…
