Match rewind: Farnborough

It was the culminaton of ‘bounceback season’. Relegated in, shall we say, not altogether favourable circumstances the season before following Chester’s collapse, threadbare Fleet regrouped in the summer of 2010 with an influx of new players.

Post-match reaction: Brown’s boys buoyant

Steve Brown was delighted but left wanting more from his side following their 3-0 win over Farnborough.
