Stevenage seal deal for star striker Godden

Ebbsfleet United top scorer Matt Godden will not be plying his trade at Stonebridge Road in 2016/17 after the 24-year-old agreed terms with League Two side Stevenage to seal a move to the Lamex Stadium.

Fleet 4-2 Eastbourne Borough

Fleet warmed up for the play-offs with an entertaining win over Eastbourne Borough, Matt Godden grabbing another hat-trick but finishing just short of the Golden Boot as Elliott Buchanan of Bishop’s Stortford extended his own tally today.

Fleet 3-1 Chelmsford City

Fleet recovered from the shock of conceding a goal within seconds of the kick-off to record their first regular league win over Chelmsford City at Stonebridge Road since 1996.

Hayes & Yeading Utd. 0-5 Fleet

When last these clubs met it was all about four sendings-off but Matt Godden’s magnificent performance made this one all about his four goals, consecutive strikes that saw him  soar past the 40-goal mark for the club.

Fleet 1-1 Dartford

It was honours even in the North Kent derby as Dartford made it 37 years without a league win at Stonebridge Road – but they might well be happier with the point earned than the Fleet. That said, with Maidstone’s defeat and Sutton’s draw, while it was an opportunity missed for the home side, it…

Macca pleased for Godden’s sake

Daryl McMahon was almost as delighted with Matt Godden’s 20th goal of the season on Tuesday night as the club’s top scorer was himself. It was Godden’s first goal of 2016 and the Fleet boss thinks it will prove a weight off his striker’s mind. “He was fantastic the whole night through again,” McMahon told FleetOnline. “He’s…

Fleet 2-2 Havant & Waterlooville

Another draw at Stonebridge Road opened up the race for the league title further still as Fleet got themselves back in the game after conceding an early goal only to let a 2-1 lead slip.

Whitehawk 0-1 Fleet

Talk about saving the best for last – travelling Fleet fans witnessed one of the best displays of the year at the close of 2015 as their side put in a gutsy, dominant performance to come away from The Enclosed Ground with three points for the first time. There was even the luxury of a…

Fleet 4-2 Concord Rangers

Fleet delivered Christmas cheer with a four-goal blast and an extension of their lead at the top of the table to 10 points – but were pushed to the limit by a stubborn Concord Rangers side who fought back to within a goal during the second half.

Oxford City 3-1 Fleet

Oxford City became the first side to defeat a travelling Fleet this season as they fought back from a goal down to knock their visitors out of the FA Trophy, while skipper Tom Bonner seeing red in the second half.
