Fleet 2-0 Leyton Orient

The headlines will be about how Ebbsfleet United put a dent in Leyton Orient’s title charge but, for home fans, the talk is of their own team’s fortunes with today’s deserved win over the league leaders seeing the Fleet climb a place to sit just two points outside the play-offs. It was, as usual, a…

The big dog bites back

Chris Bush notched his second goal of the season in some style this afternoon with a free-kick that left FC Halifax goalkeeper Sam Johnson a reluctant admirer – and the Fleet defender scotched rumours that Myles Weston let him take it. “Westy will [take credit] but really and truly he knows he was never going…

Fleet 4-0 FC Halifax Town

If the lack of goals under Garry Hill was becoming any sort of weight on the new manager’s shoulders, it was well and truly lifted in a dominant Fleet display as they brushed aside FC Halifax Town at the Kuflink Stadium. It was Fleet’s seventh win in eight home games over Halifax and equalled the…
