Sam Deering move to Billericay confirmed

Ebbsfleet United can confirm that midfielder Sam Deering has joined Billericay Town after his contract expired at the end of June.

He remains contracted to Ebbsfleet United Football Club until June 30th so we are surprised to have been copied in to an…

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…

Truro City 1-1 Fleet

Sam Deering’s second-half equaliser replicated the score from Treyew Road of last season but the single point saw Fleet slip a further two behind Maidenhead United at the top of the table. Fleet, who were denied by the woodwork, some last-gasp defending and heroic goalkeeping, must now hope to gain maximum points from Easter’s double-header…

St Albans City 0-3 Fleet

Fleet in 2017 equalled their stunning start to last season as victory over St Albans City took Daryl McMahon’s side’s record to won 10, drawn one, lost none. The manager will have been delighted with his side’s clinical first-half display and robust rearguard as another clean sheet saw the home side shut out. Three goals…

Poole Town 0-2 Fleet

Fleet earned maximum league points from a tough January schedule by being only the second side to beat Poole Town at the newly renamed BlackGold Stadium in 2016/17. Goals in either half separated the sides second v third in the table and Fleet deserved the win with a solid, disciplined performance against a tidy Poole side…

Wealdstone 2-4 Fleet

Fleet banged four goals past Wealdstone for the second time this season to complete a first double in 2016/17 but the home side pushed them all the way with the result still in the balance until Sam Deering’s late strike confirmed the three points. A goal in time added on would usually have been the talking…

Fleet 1-0 Bath City

Goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore and his back four earned the plaudits as Fleet shut out Bath City for a first win over the Romans at Stonebridge Road since 2011. Ashmore saved a 49th-minute penalty, his second such stop this season, to preserve the lead that Sam Deering had given the Fleet in the first half. Daryl McMahon made…

Fleet squad hit the bar (or, rather, do they..?)

The Fleet’s playing squad have decided to allow fans a sneak preview into their own Crossbar Challenge for this season as Kenny Clark’s candid camera gets to work at the end of training sessions for the ultimate accuracy challenge! The winning squad member at the end of the season may even be in line for a…

Fleet 3-1 St Albans City

You could accuse Fleet fans of being greedy for expecting another goal rush against a team like St Albans City – but they were treated to three in 21 minutes (and one of those inside either eight or 12 seconds depending who timed it) as Fleet moved into fourth place and above their opponents. Daryl McMahon’s side…
