Danny dumbfounded by disallowed goal

Danny Kedwell was as mystified as most inside the Kuflink Stadium when his second ‘goal’ was chalked off by referee Josh Smith. As the game headed into the final eight minutes of normal time, Kedwell latched on to a forward ball and outmuscled defender Kyle Jameson prior to despatching a shot past goalkeeper Joel Dixon….

“The way we won showed commitment”

Daryl McMahon spoke of the “monkey off his back” as Fleet held on to record their second home win in the league. The 1-0 victory over Barrow was Fleet’s fourth match unbeaten and also the fourth game in succession in which they’ve taken the lead – stats the manager would have bitten your hand off…

Fleet 1-0 Barrow

Much like the 1-0 win against Solihull which set Fleet on last season’s roll after a poor spell of form, so this three points was greeted with glee all around the Kuflink Stadium. Danny Kedwell’s first-half strike – his first goal at home this season – ultimately proved the difference but Daryl McMahon will take…

PREVIEW: Barrow

There’s not a cigarette paper between the two sides contesting Saturday’s Vanarama National League game at the Kuflink Stadium – both are eager for a win to arrest some poor form, both are facing restructuring processes off the pitch and both have four wins apiece at Stonebridge Road in head-to-head contests.

Kedwell on the brink as Fleet seek Holker Street reversal

It’s role-reversal time for Fleet fans with a long memory as Holker Street’s Furness Building Society Stadium beckons once more. Back in 1982, Fleet faced the long trip north to face a Barrow side in ninth place, with us requiring points to avoid relegation. This time it’s the other way around and, although it’s not quite…

Any team could take this league, says goalscorer Drury

Andy Drury believes the Fleet have as much chance as anyone in the National League of stringing together results and cementing a place in the top positions of the division. “Keep going and grind out four, five, six results , you’ll be up near the top of the table and you get a bit of…

Fleet 3-2 Barrow

Fleet moved up to 10th in the National League with three more points this afternoon to record their 300th win at National League/Conference level, though it wasn’t an easy ride as four goals in the last 20 minutes made the result far from from a foregone conclusion. Daryl McMahon opted for Aaron McLean to partner…
