Hall celebrates an anniversary of sorts

Almost a year into the job as first-team goalkeeper, Brandon Hall has earned praise from his manager ahead of tomorrow’s Sutton United match.

Fleet 3-0 Sutton United

The Fleet put in their best performance since last season’s play-off semi-final against probably their sternest test of the season as an afternoon of exhilarating football entertained the home fans.
