Cody closes career at Fleet

Ebbsfleet United and Cody McDonald have parted ways following the cancellation of the striker’s contract by mutual consent.

The 33-year-old was Garry Hill’s first signing as manager in November 2018 and he went on to feature 14 times for the Fleet up to last February, scoring three goals.

A serious injury sustained in a home game v Hartlepool United 11 months ago, which turned out to be cruciate knee ligament damage, sidelined the former Gillingham man and although he has trained hard to be back fit for the Fleet this season, he hasn’t managed to pull on the red shirt in 2019/20.

Cody scored twice against Braintree and got another at Chesterfield last season

Having played for Dartford before spells at Norwich City, Coventry City, Gillingham and AFC Wimbledon, Cody scored more than 100 goals at EFL level. He was a big part of Garry Hill’s plans before and after the injury and we would like to wish him all the very best for the future.

In his time in rehabilitation, Cody has been a fantastic, hard-working professional and very supportive behind the scenes, even helping transport kit to and from games and we are sure Fleet fans will join us in sending our best wishes to him – and regret that we didn’t get to see more of him in a Fleet shirt.
