Clark returns north of the river

Ebbsfleet United can announce that defender Kenny Clark has departed the club to join Dagenham & Redbridge on a permanent deal. The 30-year-old was the club’s second longest-serving player behind Dean Rance having played for four managers at the Fleet since being signed by Steve Brown from Dartford in summer 2014. Clark clocked up 175…

Clark’s all about the clean sheets

Kenny Clark has been part of a Fleet back line that has now kept three successive clean sheets and conceded just twice in six unbeaten matches and they’re the plus points the defender is taking out of the draw at Boreham Wood this afternoon. “It’s three on the spin,” Clark told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles…

Fleet 1-1 Maidstone United

It was a point apiece for the Kent rivals as second-half goals gave both sets of fans something to cheer about in an occasionally feisty affair but one that was short on chances. There was one change for the Fleet with Andy Drury out after an injury in training and that meant a recall for…

PREVIEW: AFC Fylde

Six goals were shared by the Fleet and AFC Fylde last season and both sides have only enhanced their attacking reputations since then, leading to an expectation that it might very well rain goals at the Kuflink Stadium this Saturday. That, however, would be to ignore that the Coasters currently boast the best defensive record…

The changing room’s absolutely buzzing, says Fleet’s match winner

It’s been a while between goals for one of Fleet’s most prolific centre-backs but Kenny Clark couldn’t have chosen a better time to connect with a Jack Powell corner than the 81st minute of last night’s then-goalless affair at Eastleigh. Clark, who last hit the net in August at home to AFC Fylde, can usually…

Eastleigh 0-1 Fleet

Eleven games unbeaten, Fleet finally roared into the top seven as recent performances have deserved with another hard-fought and slender win. With spirit in the camp sky-high after Kenny Clark’s headed goal – “long overdue” said the man himself afterwards – the sky really is the limit for this Fleet side. Fleet were unchanged once…

Fleet 3-3 AFC Fylde

With Fleet’s unbeaten 2017 record hanging by the most slender of threads, Andy Drury slotted home in the final minute to preserve that particular run and clinch a well-deserved point for Daryl McMahon’s side. It was the third time this season AFC Fylde had let a lead slip but the Coasters roared into a two-goal…

“Not again!” says Ken

Ebbsfleet United’s player of the year Kenny Clark is determined to put last season’s disappointment behind him as he turns his attention to Saturday’s final against his former club, Chelmsford City. Alongside Anthony Cook, Yado Mambo and Sean Shields, Clark is one of four former Clarets lining up on the opposite side – while Jack Powell…

Fleet 2-1 Hampton & RB (agg: 4-2)

Fleet won a play-off semi-final second leg for the first time since the same result in 2011 en route to promotion – and the opponents then, Chelmsford City, will provide the challengers at Stonebridge Road next Saturday in the 2016/17 promotion final. A first-half goal this afternoon looked to have booked Fleet’s place in the…

Congratulations Kenny! Player of the year!

Ebbsfleet United fans have voted Kenny Clark as their supporters’ player of the year for 2016/17. With the poll taken at the last two home matches by the Fleet Supporters Trust, the central defender came top of the pile, ahead of Nathan Ashmore in second place. It’s a richly deserved award for Kenny who has played…
