Fleet 0-2 Royston Town

A place in the last eight of the Buildbase FA Trophy will have to wait as far as the Fleet are concerned with Kevin Watson’s side becoming the next victim of Royston Town’s impressive collection of cup scalps this season. In a listless, uninspired performance, Fleet were forced into extra-time following a goalless 90 minutes…

Feast or famine for the Crows?

A murder is the collective noun for a grouping of crows – and there will definitely be a victim following Saturday’s Buildbase FA Trophy, with the tie to conclude on the day due to this round’s no-replay ruling.

Fleet 1-0 King’s Lynn Town

The man who might not have been on the pitch but for a sending-off won this tie with a cool second-half spot-kick as 10-man Fleet booked their place in Round 3 of the Buildbase FA Trophy for the first time in five years. Substitute Ayo Obileye, who had come on in the first-half in a…
