Fleet replace Gills friendly with Spurs XI

One of Fleet’s summer friendlies is off but the club have moved swiftly to fill the gap with a Tottenham Hotspur XI coming to the Kuflink Stadium. Gillingham have withdrawn from the originally scheduled friendly on Tuesday, 23rd July, with new manager Steve Evans wishing to reduce his side’s number of summer games, the fixture having been arranged before he…

First friendly gets date switch

The Fleet’s opening friendly match at the Kuflink Stadium this summer will now take place on Saturday, July 7th, rather than on the 14th as previously advertised. Bostik League champions Billericay Town are the opposition and the match kicks off on the 7th at 3.00pm. Changes in Fleet’s pre-season schedule have necessitated the change.

Friendly five as Fleet set up Royals date

Ebbsfleet United can confirm a fifth home friendly for July with Daryl McMahon’s side set to face a Reading XI on Saturday July 28th.

Fleet 1-2 AFC Wimbledon

Fleet 1-2 AFC Wimbledon

Fleet signed off pre-season with a narrow defeat at home to League One’s AFC Wimbledon as Daryl McMahon kept faith with the eleven who drew with Southend United last weekend. That meant that Sam Magri again occupied a central defensive berth as Kenny Clark sat things out with an injury, alongside Dean Rance. The Dons fielded a strong side despite…

Hendon 2-3 Fleet

Hendon 2-3 Fleet

There’s just one more friendly game to go before the real thing and before that, Fleet picked up a win at Bostik League side Hendon with Darren McQueen maintaining his hot scoring streak in pre-season and Danny Mills getting off the mark. Daryl McMahon once again rotated his side and gave Ollie Boulding a starting place at full-back while Andy…

Fleet 1-1 Southend United

Fleet 1-1 Southend United

The weather may have been unexpectedly dreadful by summer standards but the Fleet were once again anything but as they clicked into gear after a strong start by their League One opponents and were unfortunate not to hold on for the win after taking the lead shortly after the hour mark. Daryl McMahon will no doubt again be pleased with…

Fleet boss eyes form in final week of friendlies

Fleet boss eyes form in final week of friendlies

Ebbsfleet United are down to their final three friendlies, with the visit of Southend United first up this Saturday. The League One club narrowly missed out on the play-offs, with Millwall eventually winning promotion after finishing just a point ahead in 2016/17. As such, the Shrimpers are expected to be Fleet’s toughest opponents of the summer schedule and Daryl McMahon…

Fleet 0-2 Cambridge United

Fleet 0-2 Cambridge United

A much-improved second-half performance from a strong Cambridge United side earned them a win in this friendly, despite Fleet’s strong start and positive footing in the first half. In a much-changed lineup from Saturday, much like the one he fielded at Tonbridge, Daryl McMahon chose to partner Kenny Clark and Yado Mambo in defence while Jonathan Miles started in goal…
