Performance far below where it should be, says boss

Garry Hill felt Fleet supporters were let down following his side’s poor defeat to Aldershot Town and will bring the squad in for training tomorrow as a result. “I felt the supporters have been let down today and the management team,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “Even though we all work together, I…

Fleet 1-2 Aldershot Town

Had the Fleet approached the first 80 minutes as they did the last 10, this result might have been very different – but unfortunately the first 80 minutes made for very difficult viewing.

A Shot at redemption

Fleet will be looking for their first win at the Kuflink Stadium this season but line up against an Aldershot side desperate not to allow themselves to be leapfrogged by Garry Hill’s men in a weekend that sees two clashes between sides in the bottom five.

“We’ve shown we can play together”

As it was last Saturday, so it was this – Cheek and Kedwell on the scoresheet together.

The season reaches its halfway stage and with it Fleet have the opportunity to complete their first double as Garry Hill’s side travel to Aldershot for this first return fixture of 2018/19. A 3-1 win over the Shots at the Kuflink Stadium in August came in the middle of the Fleet’s best run of the…

Laid-back Shields saving celebrations for later

Sean Shields may have scored three goals in two games but the popular winger isn’t one to over-indulge in celebrations. The 26-year-old, now entering his fifth season at the Fleet, can usually be seen saluting the crowd or, at his most euphoric, sliding on his knees for each of his 17 goals. But over-celebration isn’t…

Attack! Attack! And how to do it…

As if a constant selection headache isn’t enough for Daryl McMahon, the Fleet boss has the added conundrum of fitting in all the Fleet’s attacking players and it’s a tweak in formation that is allowing him to do so. McMahon saw his troops rally after the shock of an early goal and he shifted Sam…
