On This Day: April 18th

Solihull Moors would have been the final visitors of this season to the Kuflink Stadium today and who knows what would have been riding on the occasion by this stage, a day that was also to have seen the Fleet squad join their shirt sponsors in the Main Stand bar for presentations. As it is,…

On This Day: March 28th

On a day that we all wish we were playing at Yeovil Town, perhaps we should take some solace in the fact that March 28th has never been particularly kind to the Fleet! Of the 15 times we’ve played on this day, the Fleet have won on just two occasions – in 1959 and 1970!…

Hill’s managing the minutes

Fleet open their home set of friendlies against Tottenham Hotspur this Saturday with 180 minutes of football already under their belts following games at K Sports and Dartford.

Darts next up in summer schedule

The Fleet travel the short distance to Princes Park this evening to take on Dartford in our second pre-season friendly.

“Very important to get the win” says boss

Daryl McMahon was pleased his players “did what they had to do” to eke out a win in a game the manager admitted wasn’t exactly a classic. Speaking to BBC Radio Kent’s Matt Cole, McMahon said: “At the end we were a bit loose with a couple of counterattacks that we could have killed the…

Fleet 1-0 Dartford

Fleet started the New Year with a bang and gained vengeance for Dartford’s Boxing Day victory as a Bradley Bubb strike four minutes before half-time was enough to separate the sides. It was hardly a classic in very poor conditions but the Fleet contingent in the record Stonebridge Road crowd for a New Year’s Day fixture of 2,564…

New year, same stakes…

After Blue Monday, Fleet are hoping for Super Sunday as Dartford make the return trip to Stonebridge Road for the first game of 2017. With the ground capacity back above 3,000 thanks to the full opening of the new stand for the first time, a bumper crowd is expected to see if the home side…
