Solly surpasses scoring rate

He scored three goals in more than 10 years at The Valley but Chris Solly has already nearly managed the same in a few months at the Kuflink Stadium!

The Fleet defender opened his account for the club in the FA Cup against Hampton & Richmond Borough last October and doubled that with his first league goal to take a point at home to Chippenham.
