Cheek lands player of the month

Ebbsfleet United are delighted that Michael Cheek has been awarded the Vanarama National League player of the month for December 2018. Cheek, who scored his ninth goal of the season at Chesterfield in the Fleet’s last game, scored eight of those in the club’s last 10 games. All of us at the Kuflink Stadium would like to congratulate Michael for…

Chesterfield 3-3 Fleet

Chesterfield 3-3 Fleet

An utterly unbelievable finish to this match saw defender Will Evans cap a Chesterfield comeback with an equalising goal and then save an injury time penalty after he had to go in goal following the home keeper’s late red card. In truly dramatic scenes, draw specialists Chesterfield turned around a 3-0 half-time deficit and then denied Fleet a 97th minute…

Cheek welcomes competition up top

Cheek welcomes competition up top

Between them this festive season, Fleet’s three strikers have scored eight of the side’s 11 goals and none of them show any signs of letting up. It’s a welcome selection problem for Garry Hill each week but Michael Cheek, whose brace lifted him to eight goals this season so far, thinks the strikers can feed off each other’s successes. “I’m…

Braintree Town 0-4 Fleet

Braintree Town 0-4 Fleet

Fleet put four past Braintree Town for the second time in a week but on this occasion with no reply to make it three wins from three over Christmas and move within three points of the play-off spots. And they did it with the now-familiar quickfire start, opening the scoring inside three minutes as a change of strike partnership once…

“We’ve shown we can play together”

“We’ve shown we can play together”

As it was last Saturday, so it was this – Cheek and Kedwell on the scoresheet together. And the man of the moment, Michael Cheek with four goals in three games, insists that he and 60-goal Danny Kedwell can strike up a viable partnership. “There’s no pressure,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “I didn’t sign just to replace…

Aldershot Town 0-2 Fleet

Aldershot Town 0-2 Fleet

Fleet came away from the EBB Stadium with a smile on their faces for the second time this year and their first double as two second-half goals saw off Aldershot Town. Michael Cheek’s scoring streak continued, Danny Kedwell made it 60 club goals and Nathan Ashmore chalked up his 50th clean sheet. As expected, Garry Hill was forced into two…

Maidenhead United 1-1 Fleet

Maidenhead United 1-1 Fleet

Ebbsfleet United made it six games unbeaten in the National League and climbed to 10th as Maidenhead forced a share of the points at York Road. Garry Hill resisted the temptation to change a winning team though there were two alterations to the bench, new signing Cody McDonald and Sam Magri returning from suspension in place of Bagasan Graham and…

Fleet 4-0 FC Halifax Town

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 4-0 best-ever result against them…

Mixed emotions for Cheek after first goal

Mixed emotions for Cheek after first goal

Ebbsfleet goalscorer Michael Cheek admitted to conflicting emotions after opening his Fleet account. He showed great technique to get on the end of Corey Whitely’s delivery in the 27th minute and send a half volley on target to record his first goal in his third start in a Fleet shirt. “It’s certainly mixed emotions at the moment,” Cheek told Charles…

Fleet 1-1 Havant & W.

Fleet 1-1 Havant & W.

Fleet stopped the rot at the Kuflink Stadium with a point but it’s five games without a win and with Kenny Clark sent off for a second yellow card, it was a frustrating afternoon for the home faithful. Another early goal conceded meant the Fleet had to come from behind and that they did, Michael Cheek opening his account after…
