Ebou takes EFL chance with FGR

Fleet midfielder Ebou Adams has today completed a deal to move into League Two with Forest Green Rovers on a two-year deal. Mark Cooper’s play-off semi-finalists have signed the 23-year-old Gambian international for an undisclosed fee. Adams was one of the Fleet’s big summer signings last year, having ended the previous season on loan at…

Adams raises a smile on and off the pitch

Ebou Adams produced a man-of-the-match-winning performance in midfield to collect the sponsors’ champagne at the end of 90 minutes but he almost introduced himself to them before that when he clattered into an advertising hoarding towards the end of the game. The midfielder decided against intercepting a ball destined for the touchline and instead slid…

Adams and Weston play on world stage

Ebou Adams and Myles Weston both added to their international caps this weekend, playing 90 minutes each for Gambia and Antigua & Barbuda respectively. Adams helped earn Gambia a valuable point in their Africa Cup of Nations qualification game against Algeria, a superb result given that Gambia are ranked 172nd in the world and Algeria…

PREVIEW: Leyton Orient

There are more Fleet representatives than just Ebou Adams returning to Leyton Orient this Tuesday evening, though it will likely be the summer signing who will attract the spotlight for our first away clash of 2018/19. Some Fleet fans may be reminded of a similar situation in 2013 when Daryl McMahon, Billy Bricknell, Dean Rance,…

Fleet 1-1 Reading

The Fleet go into next week’s league opener against Chesterfield with their unbeaten pre-season record intact and were unfortunate not to chalk up another win as Reading’s bright U23s grabbed a late equaliser. Daryl McMahon opted for a back three of Magri, King and Bush and his side had sight of goal as early as…

With thanks to Gillingham FC who were filming Saturday’s game at the Kuflink Stadium, they sent us the footage of Ebou Adams’ fantastic second-half goal for your viewing pleasure below:  

“We’ve signed them because they’re good”

Daryl McMahon insists the players that have arrived at the Kuflink Stadium this summer aren’t there to make up the numbers. Talking to BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster before his side saw off Gillingham on Saturday afternoon, the Fleet boss stuck to his guns that he only brings players in with the intention of improving…

Adams: “I feel this is the right club for me”

Wonder-goal hero Ebou Adams is loving life at the Kuflink Stadium so far as he lit up his new home with a super strike in the 2-0 defeat of Gillingham. The 22-year-old midfielder was modest to a fault after scoring his second – and what a second! – goal of pre-season. “It was good build-up…

Fleet 2-0 Gillingham

Fleet reserved their best performance of pre-season for their toughest test yet as a Gillingham side with four new signings and seven who made League One appearances last season succumbed to a goal in either half. And the afternoon was made all the more memorable for Ebou Adams’ stunning overhead kick for the second goal,…

Fleet 1-1 Billericay Town

A game of two halves and a team of two halves produced a 1-1 draw against Bostik Premier League champions Billericay Town in the first pre-season workout of 2018/19. Under searing midday heat, a lively enough first half produced both the goals and a second-half with a more understandably sedate tempo saw fewer chances for…
