Promotion Final recollection

Today was, of course, the third anniversary of our promotion via the play-offs and the final victory over Chelmsford City. We collected together some images and video around that game for a lookback on our YouTube channel (video below). Don’t forget to subscribe to the club YouTube channel as we have some archived games to…

Graham loan extended to end of season

The Fleet have allowed Bagasan Graham to remain on loan at Chelmsford City until the end of the season. The 25-year-old wide player rejoined City for a third spell on loan last month and has played five games for the Clarets since his return. He signed for the Fleet this summer after scoring against us…

Fleet pair in loan moves

Ebbsfleet United have allowed two players to depart on loan following the completion of paperwork this morning. Striker Danny Mills will make the short journey to Princes Park to link up with Dartford on a two-month temporary deal while Bagasan Graham returns to former club Chelmsford City on a one-month deal. Both National League South…

Macca bags Bush to fill defensive void

Ebbsfleet United have this afternoon signed 25-year-old defender Chris Bush from Chelmsford City on a permanent contract. The former Hereford and Welling United player captained Chelmsford against the Fleet in last season’s promotion final at Stonebridge Road and was a major part of Rod Stringer’s impressive Clarets side in 2016/17. The 6ft 3in centre-back is…

Macca bags Chelmsford wide man

Fleet have made Bagasan Graham the third new signing of the close season after Daryl McMahon landed the former Chelmsford City player earlier today. An attacking wide midfielder, who can also take up defensive duties as a wing back, Graham caught the eye when he scored twice against the Fleet last season – including the…

Deering digs deep from past experiences

Voted man of the match in our online poll, chiefly for his role in being the springboard for both Fleet goals, Sam Deering channelled his previous finals experience to force his side over the line last Saturday. Deering lost the 2015 final with Whitehawk and then finished on the losing side once again with the Fleet last…

Gravesend Messenger’s nine pages of Fleet coverage!

With extensive coverage in the sports section courtesy of Steve Tervet, there are also some fan-related write-ups in the news pages plus a wraparound cover devoted to the final. All of which…

Pain and promotion go hand-in-hand for Drury

Andy Drury has been playing through the pain barrier for two months as he sought to get the club over the line and promoted to the National League. An injury which forced him off at St Albans in the second half of Fleet’s 3-0 win there back in March was, at the time, a cause…

The memories will never leave, says Fleet keeper

The only Fleet player to feature in every minute of every league game this season has said the post-match celebrations will never leave him as he reflected on clinching promotion last Saturday. Goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore made his 63rd appearance for the club in the victory over Chelmsford City and he told Charles Webster how incredible it…

Mystic Mac predicts McQueen’s dazzler

McLean and McQueen may be the perfect rhyming couplet for a strike force but it seems there’s more to their partnership than mere poetry. Aaron McLean told Darren McQueen before the game that he was going to be the player to send Ebbsfleet United into the National League and he was as good as his word….
