Basingstoke Town 1-2 Fleet

Aaron McLean picked the perfect time to open his Fleet account with a winner deep into stoppage time that saw Fleet go from a four-point lead to an eight-point gap in the space of a minute or two, following Concord’s near-simultaenous equaliser at Maidstone. With the December late shows at Hemel and at home to…

Fleet head for the road once more

Fleet return to the road this weekend in the first of three away trips hoping their form outside Stonebridge Road this season will kick-start a first win of 2016. Fleet travel to protect their undefeated away record in the league and strugglers Basingstoke Town are next up – but as luck would have it, they are…

FA Cup draw and replay prices confirmed

Fleet fans not entirely excited by the second qualifying round draw at Chelmsford City will be equally familiar with their prospective opponents for the third stage after the FA Cup draw this morning. The winners of the Fleet-Chelmsford replay on Tuesday night will play away at Basingstoke Town, who of course not only knocked us…

Fleet 1-0 Basingstoke Town

Fleet began 2015/16 as intended with a single-goal victory over last season’s bogey side – Danny Kedwell’s 51st minute strike notching up the full three points. There was much expectation over Daryl McMahon’s starting line-up and Danny Kedwell was chosen over Adam Cunnington to lead the line, with Kenny Clark in ahead of Anthony Acheampong…

Fleet kick off at home to Basingstoke

Ebbsfleet United’s 2015/16 campaign will kick-off at home to Basingstoke Town on Saturday, August 8th – giving Daryl McMahon’s side an early opportunity to lay to rest last season’s hoodoo against a team who won all three clashes in the league and FA Cup on their way to the play-offs. And there will be no…

Fleet 1-5 Basingstoke Town

Fleet will be quite happy to end their association with Basingstoke Town this season here and now after a drubbing that ended 2014 on a low point. After beating Chelmsford by the same 5-1 scoreline on Boxing Day, hopes were high for at least a measure of that performance, but Basingstoke recorded their third win over…

Fleet 1-2 Basingtoke Town

Liam Enver-Marum produced a classic smash-and-grab to send Fleet tumbling out of the FA Cup in a game home fans could not believe they lost. To rub salt into the wound, Joe Howe was sent off late on as Fleet failed to make the Fourth Qualifying Round for the first time in 15 years. There was just one change…

Match preview: FA Cup’s top tie is nigh

Arguably the biggest FA Cup game this weekend, between the joint highest-ranked side in the competition and the team just four points behind them in the league, takes place at the PHB Stadium and it’s one that’s definitely too close to call. Fleet go into the game having blasted 13 goals in three games prior to…

Fleet home again after cup draw

Ebbsfleet United have drawn another Conference South side at home in the Third Qualifying Round – just as we did last season. This time around, Basingstoke Town will be the visitors – on Saturday, October 11. The Hampshire side already have some encouragement for the tie, having won an earlier league fixture this season at the…

Basingstoke Town 1-0 Fleet

Fleet’s run of ill luck continued as they fell to a first-half Shaun McAuley goal, a 35-yard free-kick strike from distance over Preston Edwards’ head. The visitors’ – with Tommy Fraser, Matt Johnson and Billy Bricknell drafted in – saw their recent goal famine extended as they couldn’t find a reply, though the woodwork intervened on…
