April’s never boring where the Fleet boss is concerned

Daryl McMahon goes into the final week of the season with plenty still riding on his side’s remaining games. And it’s hardly new territory for the Fleet boss who as both a player and a manager rarely seems to have a dull final month. Whereas most playing and management careers are punctuated by numerous ends…

Fleet to play training game behind closed doors

Ebbsfleet United’s players won’t have all weekend to themselves following the postponement of Saturday’s trip to Gateshead. Daryl McMahon has arranged a training game at home to Eastbourne Borough on Saturday morning at a mutually convenient time for both sides – but it will be played behind closed doors.

It was difficult to argue with that assessment as…
