Egan’s midfield marathon

He scored his first goal for the club earlier this season but it’s the past few games where Alfie Egan has really caught the eye. A well-taken goal in a friendly v Dorking Wanderers was followed by a man-of-the-match performance as voted by Fleet supporters v Hampton in midweek, as well as the winning goal….

“I’m so proud to manage them”

Dennis Kutrieb couldn’t contain his admiration for the result his nine men made off with after a battle and a half in Havant. The manager’s 78th minute substitution took a whole 24 seconds to come to fruition as Dominic Poleon scored the winner with his first contribution, and Kutrieb sensed his new signing could spring…

Havant & Waterlooville 1-2 Fleet

The Fleet exacted revenge for the defeat by Havant at the Kuflink Stadium in December by earning their fourth win in five games. And, much like our previous game at Westleigh Park that ended 3-3 back in 2019, this one was packed with drama and incident as nine-man Fleet not only held off 10-man Havant,…

The two goals killed us, says Wood

Will Wood led Fleet’s online man of the match vote following Saturday’s match against Havant & Waterloville but he felt his current team gave his former side their goals too easily. “To concede so early, the two goals in the way that we conceded those goals, we always knew it was going to be an…

Fleet boss reacts to Havant result

Dennis Kutrieb said the defending that led to Havant & Waterlooville’s goals on Saturday felt like own goals. Fleet were guilty of surrendering possession in the build-up to the second and third goals, while the opener was avoidable said the manager. “That was very sloppy,” he said. “It’s a little bit like an own goal…

Fleet 0-3 Havant & Waterlooville

Fleet returned from self-isolation but found visitors Havant & Waterlooville to be an immovable obstacle as the Hawks scored twice in quick succession towards the end of the first-half to leave the home side with a mountain to climb in the second. And when Tommy Wright added his second of the afternoon midway through the…

PREVIEW: Fleet look up as Hawks come in to land

Three weeks – a fortnight of self-isolation followed by a further week without a game – have flown past since Fleet’s players last kicked a ball in anger and a return to action couldn’t be much tastier than a visit from Havant & Waterlooville. One of the pre-season favourites following their runners-up spot and eventually…

PREVIEW: Havant & Waterlooville

If there’s one place to make a stand near the end of a testing campaign, it’s a place with ‘Waterloo’ in the title – but Fleet must hope it’s not a final stand and they need three points this Good Friday to avoid the season effectively finishing at Westleigh Park. Garry Hill had plenty to…

Mixed emotions for Cheek after first goal

Ebbsfleet goalscorer Michael Cheek admitted to conflicting emotions after opening his Fleet account. He showed great technique to get on the end of Corey Whitely’s delivery in the 27th minute and send a half volley on target to record his first goal in his third start in a Fleet shirt. “It’s certainly mixed emotions at…

“We can build on that for Tuesday…”

Daryl McMahon thought his Ebbsfleet side produced better this afternoon than they’d given in the previous two outings but he was frustrated that things didn’t quite fall Fleet’s way. “It was a better performance than we’ve had in the last two for sure,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “Some good performances but not…
