Fleet 2-2 Maidstone United (3-4 on pens)

Fleet’s promotion dream was undone in the final seconds of extra-time as a late equaliser saw the visitors through to a penalty shootout in which they prevailed to take the place in the National League for 2016/17. Danny Kedwell’s two penalty conversions in the 120 minutes looked to have given the Fleet the edge but,…

Fleet 1-2 Whitehawk (3-3aet / 3-2 on pens)

Nathan Ashmore saved the crucial spot kick from Jake Robinson in a penalty shootout to send Fleet into the National League South promotion final after they were pushed all the way by Whitehawk. It wasn’t quite the easy path to the final of previous play-off campaigns for nervous home fans who had to withstand a Whitehawk…

Whitehawk 1-2 Fleet

Fleet got their noses in front in the tie and maintained their 100% first-leg record in play-offs as they edged Whitehawk in a game that was a great advert for the National League South. The home side came on strong in the first half but Fleet dug in and produced a fine second-half display to extend their…

Fleet 4-2 Eastbourne Borough

Fleet warmed up for the play-offs with an entertaining win over Eastbourne Borough, Matt Godden grabbing another hat-trick but finishing just short of the Golden Boot as Elliott Buchanan of Bishop’s Stortford extended his own tally today. Daryl McMahon’s main changes came in defence where Dean Pooley and Joe Howe replaced Matt Fish and Bryan…

Sutton United 2-0 Fleet

Fleet’s recent record at Gander Green Lane didn’t see an upturn when it mattered most as Sutton United all  but confirmed their automatic promotion spot with a 2-0 victory in front of a 3,142 attendance. Fleet had the best of the opening spell but once the home side got their noses in front, they rarely looked…

Fleet 3-1 Chelmsford City

Fleet recovered from the shock of conceding a goal within seconds of the kick-off to record their first regular league win over Chelmsford City at Stonebridge Road since 1996. A stirring second-half performance and three goals in seven minutes steamrollered a City side that had previously looked assured with their lead and it kept Fleet in the…

Hayes & Yeading Utd. 0-5 Fleet

When last these clubs met it was all about four sendings-off but Matt Godden’s magnificent performance made this one all about his four goals, consecutive strikes that saw him  soar past the 40-goal mark for the club. Fleet made four changes, with Bryan van den Bogaert replacing Joe Howe, while John Paul Kissock, Tom Bonner and…

Fleet 1-1 Dartford

It was honours even in the North Kent derby as Dartford made it 37 years without a league win at Stonebridge Road – but they might well be happier with the point earned than the Fleet. That said, with Maidstone’s defeat and Sutton’s draw, while it was an opportunity missed for the home side, it…

Weston-super-Mare 2-1 Fleet

A two-goal second-half blast from Weston skipper Dayle Grubb ruined Fleet’s unbeaten away record on a day the travelling fans will want to soon forget, with many of them delayed in horrendous traffic until half-time. A late goal by substitute Matt Godden couldn’t retrieve a point in a match that Fleet desperately wanted all three from….

Fleet 6-0 Hemel Hempstead Town

Fleet fans have long been waiting for their side to put another to the sword but few expected to be served up the biggest league win for two-and-a-half years – and the biggest at Stonebridge Road since February 2004. Hemel were one of the few sides to have scored more goals than the Fleet this…
