Bath City 0-1 Fleet

Bradley Bubb’s second-half winner returned Fleet to the top of the table – albeit on alphabetical order – as the visitors came away from Twerton Park with their first win in five years. As ever in Somerset, it was a tough, grinding three points though Fleet had the late luxury of hitting the post in…

Undefeated Romans await determined Fleet

Just as last Saturday, Fleet go into battle against a fellow form side as Twerton Park will host another crucial game, with the Vanarama National League South season just starting to reach boiling point. Home side Bath City are in ninth place and are nine points off the play-off places but they’re top of the form guide…

Nathan nurtures his “animals”

Ebbsfleet United goalkeeper and yesterday’s man of the match Nathan Ashmore praised the men in front of him and claimed yesterday’s win was a game the Fleet might have lost or drawn last season. “The three at the back are just animals,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Matt Davison. “Between the four of us, we’re…

Manager’s Notes 29.10.2016

We’ve been looking forward to getting back to Stonebridge Road again after a few weeks on our travels as I’m sure you have too for this visit of Bath City. Obviously since the game against Havant & Waterlooville here, we’ve had a couple of results away from home that haven’t gone our way. With the…

Macca happy to “keep ticking along”

Daryl McMahon was pleased with the grittier side of the Fleet this afternoon as his team held out for a 1-0 win.

Fleet hoping hot home form will cool Bath

Fleet return to Stonebridge Road this Saturday hoping to rekindle the blistering home form of September after three weeks on the road. The two away league games, either side of the FA Cup exit at Merstham, yielded four more points but Daryl McMahon believed his side should have taken six. “The second-half performance at East…

Bath City 1-1 Fleet

As at Oxford City almost exactly a month ago, Fleet were pegged back by a late penalty as Bath City refused to be beaten by the league leaders this season. It was Fleet’s eighth draw of 2016 but with rivals Sutton and Maidstone both being held in their respective games, it was as-you-were at the…

Bath time for the Fleet

Still unbeaten away from home, Fleet will seek to harness that particular record as they go in search of another vital three points, this time at Bath City – and exact a measure of revenge for City’s last-minute victory at Stonebridge Road just before Christmas. With Tom Bonner and Anthony Cook beginning their suspensions, while…

Fleet 0-1 Bath City

Having left it late to down Hemel in their last league fixture, Fleet had the tables turned on them as Bath City left it until stoppage time to steal the points with an excellent strike from 25 yards.
