Full circle for King in TV game

Ebbsfleet United skipper Jack King was named the BT Sport man of the match in our televised win at FC Halifax Town and earned £200 for a charity of his choice. And King’s award – along with a winning vote in the EUFC online poll and a nomination in the KentOnline team of the weekend…

‘Sitting duck’ Wilson plays through the pain

As an Ebbsfleet United defender, it’s fair to say this season has at times been a battle. But there are no greater warriors than the Fleet back line in recent games with two successive clean sheets and a real stubborn streak that has seen only Chesterfield score more than a goal against them in the…

“We’ve found a system,” says Watson of form-team Fleet

There may be bigger issues than football on the horizon but Kevin Watson can’t do anything about those and he kept his post-match comments to what he could control – events on the pitch. And those went Fleet’s way once more as a fifth win in eight games put Watson’s side third in the form…

Fleet bar open for our live BT Sport clash

Fleet take another road trip this coming weekend and it’s another hugely crucial encounter in our survival bid at FC Halifax Town, following on from those important three points at Hartlepool. After recent feedback and requests from supporters, the club will be showing our live game at The Shay on BT Sport in our Main…

Cameras catch a clash of Kings

Jack King will need little reminding of how his season began against Halifax last August (pictured above) but if he can keep his lively namesakes quiet this weekend (top scorer Cameron King plus Jeff King will likely line up for the home team) then that will go a long way to helping the Fleet to…

Shay showing for Fleet on BT Sport

The Fleet’s Vanarama National League fixture at The Shay versus FC Halifax Town will be shown live on BT Sport. The game, on Saturday March 14th, will now kick-off at 5.20pm instead of 3.00pm. It will be Fleet’s second TV game of the season (that one was also in Yorkshire) – the 2-0 defeat at…

Hill: “I hope we go home hurting – and respond”

It was little surprise that Garry Hill’s post-match thoughts were far from favourable as Fleet fell to their biggest opening-day reverse since 1990. “I think we’ve seen it all today,” Hill told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “A very hard game to sum up. You look forward as a manager, as a player, as a…

Fleet 1-4 FC Halifax Town

It’s been 14 years since the Shaymen won their only game at the Fleet and they did so on that occasion by three goals as well. This time, they took full advantage of Fleet’s self-inflicted nightmare opening spell and with 10 men for the best part of 80 minutes, the home side were always up…

On your marks…

A new season that will pass into a new decade amidst a new era for the Fleet, 2019/20 gets under way with the visit of FC Halifax Town this Saturday. Expectation, optimism, uncertainty – it’s all there up and down the National League tomorrow but it’s at the Kuflink Stadium where it matters most as…

Halifax the visitors for season opener

Ebbsfleet United will kick-off the 2019/20 Vanarama National League season against FC Halifax Town at the Kuflink Stadium following the release of the fixtures this afternoon. Fleet won 4-0 in Garry Hill’s first home league match against the same opposition last season and will be looking to protect a proud record of having won seven…
