Trophy opposition “a decent team” warns Fleet boss

A new venue and a new opposition provide a change of scenery and competition as the Buildbase FA Trophy kicks off for the Fleet at Enfield’s QEII Stadium. The BetVictor Isthmian Premier side will be targeting this one as an opportunity to make a name for themselves by claiming a higher-division scalp but Kevin Watson…

Fleet go to Enfield in Trophy

The Fleet have been drawn away to Enfield Town in the First Round of the Buildbase FA Trophy.

They have also beaten higher opposition in the form of Braintree Town in…

Billy Bricknell departs

The club announced this afternoon that Billy Bricknell has had his contract terminated by mutual consent. Vice chairman Peter Varney said, “Billy has been an integral part of the squad here for the past 18 months and has been a model player on and off the pitch and we wish him every success in his…

Boreham Wood 1-3 Fleet

Ebbsfleet United’s Jekyll & Hyde approach to home and away matches continued in some style at the league leaders this afternoon as a Billy Bricknell double sent Boreham Wood tumbling to only their second home defeat of the season. Second from bottom of the home form table, yet top of the away pile, Fleet nonetheless…

Chelmsford City 1-5 Fleet

Fleet produced a clinical display to run up five goals in a Boxing Day feast for the travelling fans that has seen the side score 12 goals in their last three away games.

Daryl McMahon continued his winning start to life as caretaker manager as Fleet took full advantage of the Maidenhead goalkeeper’s second-half sending-off to record their biggest league win of the season.

Design a better sweater than these …

Billy Bricknell and Alex Osborn love a good Christmas costume (see their elf getup from last year’s Gravesham Borough Council world-record attempt) and now they’ve dragged Charlie Sheringham and Jordan Sanderson into the murky world of festive fashion with these woollen wonders. The photo opportunity is all part of the promotion of our competition for…

Farnborough 0-3 Fleet

Fleet cruised to a win at the Paddy Power Stadium, effectively wrapping things up in the first half against a shot-shy Farnborough and in doing so moved up another place in the Vanarama Conference South. Steve Brown kept faith with Brandon Hall in goal and the only changes from the side that thrashed Hythe were the…

Fleet 3-0 Sutton United

The Fleet put in their best performance since last season’s play-off semi-final against probably their sternest test of the season as an afternoon of exhilarating football entertained the home fans. And as he did in the corresponding fixture last season, Billy Bricknell bagged two goals against a Sutton side who struggled to live with the…

Fleet 4-1 St Albans City

The challenge Steve Brown set his players was for more ruthless finishing – and they delivered as they put 10-man St Albans City to the sword, both strikers grabbing a brace and both unlucky not to notch hat-tricks. On Non-League Day, there was entertainment aplenty for the 1,034 spectators, especially in a breathtaking final 25…
