Fleet release three with Macca’s thanks

Daryl McMahon is meeting players throughout the coming days with the expectation that he will have a complete retained list by the end of this week. The Fleet boss made the first decisions on his side’s make-up for next season by releasing three of his 2017/18 squad: Jack Connors, Anthony Cook and Marvin McCoy will…

Cook becomes a loan Card

Anthony Cook has today joined fellow National League club Woking on loan in a deal to the end of the season. The 28-year-old winger, who has played 166 times for the Fleet in two spells and scored 32 goals since first signing from Chelmsford City in summer 2013, has found first-team opportunities limited this season,…

Fleet 1-0 Oxford City

Fleet did the job they were asked to do and they did it early but there were no miracles from Margate as Maidenhead United secured the three points they needed to clinch the National League South title. The win over Oxford City gave the club the second highest points total in its history with 96…

Fleet 4-1 Eastbourne Borough

Eastbourne have now failed to beat the Fleet in 17 attempts but for an hour of this match, they looked like they might just spoil the Community Day party at Stonebridge Road before the home side upped the tempo in the second half. As with last year’s Community Day, Fleet had to come from behind…

Fleet 8-0 Bishop’s Stortford

Danny Kedwell started and finished a week of huge statistics for the Fleet as they thumped Bishop’s Stortford 8-0 in front of a four-figure Stonebridge Road crowd. Kedwell passed his 100th game on Saturday and scored the goal tonight that clinched a club record victory for the Fleet. In between, there was also time for the team to…

Two-goal Cook philosophical over hat-trick

Anthony Cook was desperate to take home the match ball this afternoon but preferred the fact his side scored six goals. The Fleet winger, who engaged in a little banter with home fans in the second half and explained he’d never had the pleasure of claiming a match ball, was unfortunate to see his chance go begging –…

Fleet 6-1 East Thurrock United

Fleet hit East Thurrock United for six with one of the most fluid performances at Stonebridge Road for quite some time. If a tribute to late skipper Paul McCarthy who wore the number six shirt could have been scripted beforehand, it would surely have gone something like this, with the Fleet shrugging off the disappointment of…

Dartford 2-1 Fleet

Dartford seized the first round of bragging rights as two second-half goals put them in the driving seat against a Fleet side whose late goal offered brief hope to away fans of salvaging something from this Boxing Day encounter. But it was two defensive lapses that allowed the Darts to take the initiative and a lack of efforts…

Fleet 4-2 Harrow Borough

Fleet eased into the First Round of the Buildbase FA Trophy as a convincing first-half performance gave Harrow Borough a mountain to climb. Looking for a response after Tuesday night’s draw, Daryl McMahon made four changes, with Jonathan Miles, Louis John, Sam Deering and Charlie Sheringham coming in for Nathan Ashmore, the suspended Mark Phillips, Anthony…
