Taylor’s aim to switch success from amber to red

Bobby Joe-Taylor needs little introduction to home fans at the Kuflink Stadium.  His mazy run from the left wing is still seared into our collective memories, receiving the ball out left, the patient run at Tom Bonner and the drop of the shoulder to turn inside the box, ride the tackle by Dean Rance and…

Taylor made for Fleet move

Ebbsfleet United have today signed versatile winger Bobby-Joe Taylor from Dover Athletic to join Dennis Kutrieb’s growing squad. The former England C international is well-known to Fleet fans having also represented Bromley and Maidstone United in the county, scoring a superb equaliser for the Stones here in the 2016 promotion final and also converting his…

Glorious May 7th!

There may be a good few years between successes but over the past 25 years or so, May 7th has provided three memorable games for Fleet fans at the business end of the season. Back in 1994 Fleet clinched the first league title for 19 years in front of 1,774 fans by beating Bury Town…

Fleet not ruthless enough for Watson

Kevin Watson says his side could learn a thing or two in game management from Dover Athletic after the Fleet could find no way through the visiting defence on Saturday. “It’s our own fault for getting in the positions we got and not being ruthless enough,” said the Fleet boss. “It’s the first game we’ve…

Fleet 0-1 Dover Athletic

Fleet are still searching for a first win over the Christmas period after Dover’s solitary first-half strike condemned Kevin Watston’s side to defeat in the last game of the decade at the Kuflink Stadium. Dover led through Michael Woods’ excellent strike on the quarter-hour and survived a spirited but fruitless Fleet attempt to respond to…

We stood bigger and stronger

Garry Hill thought his under-fire side stood up to what in-form Dover threw at them in a derby match the manager enjoyed as his players responded to Saturday’s defeat. “We never crumbled when they equalised tonight,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “It meant we had  to stand bigger and stronger and we still…

Dover Athletic 1-1 Fleet

The third 1-1 draw at Crabble between these two sides in succession is likely to please Garry Hill more than his opposite number. Ayo Obileye’s first-half opener looked set to upset the form book until Will De Havilland headed the Whites’ reply in the second-half. In contrast to Dover’s unchanged side, there were five tweaks…

Letting the new lads off the leash

With four new signings added in the past 10 days, Garry Hill is determined to stamp out the errors that have plagued the Fleet’s start to the season. And Jordan Holmes, Tyler Cordner, Botti Biabi and Alex Reid could all have a good call to start together ahead of the visit to high-flying Dover Athletic…

It’s time for Grimes

Jamie Grimes

Garry Hill has welcomed a new central defender to the Kuflink Stadium in the form of Jamie Grimes. The 28-year-old former Dover Athletic skipper signed today from League Two side Macclesfield Town. The 6ft 2in Nottingham-born defender has spent the last two seasons in the EFL and before that had plenty of experience at National…
