Preview: Fleet’s wanderlust continues

Despite tighter lockdown conditions nationally, elite sport continues and Fleet stay on the road to face their third away trip of five inside a month. And it’s a first ever trip to Dorking Wanderers, last year’s play-off semi-finalists and many people’s favourites for this season. Following the goalless draw at Dartford, Dennis Kutrieb will be…

Princes Park performance pleases Fleet boss

While he felt three points could have come his side’s way at Princes Park, Dennis Kutrieb was more than satisfied with his side’s performance against second-placed Dartford which denied Steve King’s side the chance of returning to the top of the table. “It was much better,” said Kutrieb. “But we talked the whole week that…

Dartford 0-0 Fleet

The Kent combatants shared the honours in this New Year derby as a hectic and at times end-to-end affair somehow ended blank. Fleet rattled the crossbar in the second-half while Dartford saw chances twice cleared off the line. But it was a fair result in the end as both sides got back on to the…

PREVIEW: “I know what this Kent derby means”

The last derby v Dartford drew a Stonebridge Road New Year’s Day record of 2,564 to the ground three years ago as both clubs battled for promotion. This time around, the attendance figure is an irrelevance but as we usher in 2021, the significance of the North Kent derby is not lost on the Fleet…

Ringing in the new year with the Darts

With the postponement of Fleet’s two festive matches this past week, we haven’t had the chance to formally wave goodbye to 2020. It likely wouldn’t have been a fond farewell to a year best consigned to history anyway and instead we look ahead to 2021 – and the first match of it at Princes Park…

Boxing Day derby postponed

The Fleet’s home game against Dartford in the Vanarama National League South this Boxing Day has been postponed. The club received notice from league officials this morning that a member of Dartford’s squad had tested positive for Covid-19. In medical consultation with the League and FA and as per the current guidelines, Dartford have been…

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. And with a small squad currently at his disposal, Garry Hill is already managing the minutes he exposes some of his players to ahead of two tough…

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. Fresh from the 4-3 win at K Sports which saw a strong side fielded in the first-half and an eleven made up largely of trialists and academy players in the second, Garry Hill will take…
