Club Statement – Managerial departure

Ebbsfleet United have today parted company with manager Garry Hill following Tuesday’s 4-2 defeat at home to Torquay United. The result left Fleet two points adrift at the bottom of the National League table and six from safety. Assistant manager Kevin Watson has been placed in charge of first-team affairs and will take charge of the…

Fleet must get something from home clashes

Garry Hill is under no illusions that his side need to add points in their two upcoming home games, following a pair of defeats on the road. “We’ve got two games at home and we know we’ve got to get something,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Mark German. “The results today only help if you…

One goal was always going to win that, says boss

Ebbsfleet manager Garry Hill said he will need to strengthen his side to get the points on the board he requires after seeing Wrexham get “the big break” of a winning goal this afternoon. The Fleet boss had no complaints about his side’s effort but felt they didn’t take the chances they had early on…

“The league table doesn’t lie, we’re in a battle”

Garry Hill has given his side time to respond to a poor August and get points on the board but Fleet’s first defeat of September had the manager admitting that the league table’s home truths are pretty much where his side are right now. “I feel for the supporters and I feel for the owner…

Go and win the second half!

After a first-half under the cosh for a spell at Woking, Garry Hill’s demand of his players was that they won the second half – and that they did, albeit later than perhaps their manager’s blood pressure preferred. Myles Weston’s goal deep into additional time rescued a point for the Fleet with the league leaders…

Hill looks to mark his Cards

Garry Hill returns to the club where he won a Conference South title and secured successive Top 10 finishes at National League level, with Woking currently flourishing at the top of the table. The Fleet boss can expect a warm welcome (at least until kick-off!) from a club where he is still highly thought of,…

“I’m hurting for the players tonight”

What a difference a week makes. Last Saturday Garry Hill ordered his players to report for duty the next day and this week the Fleet boss felt for them as they were denied a first home win. “We’ve worked the goalkeeper and we’re still going for the winner at the end,” Hill told BBC Radio…

We stood bigger and stronger

Garry Hill thought his under-fire side stood up to what in-form Dover threw at them in a derby match the manager enjoyed as his players responded to Saturday’s defeat. “We never crumbled when they equalised tonight,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “It meant we had  to stand bigger and stronger and we still…

Performance far below where it should be, says boss

Garry Hill felt Fleet supporters were let down following his side’s poor defeat to Aldershot Town and will bring the squad in for training tomorrow as a result. “I felt the supporters have been let down today and the management team,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “Even though we all work together, I…

I’ll donate that to the supporters

Garry Hill dedicated his side’s first win of the season to the jubilant Fleet fans, with 172 making the Bank Holiday journey to Hertfordshire. “Where do I want to donate that to?” he asked BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Wesbter. “The supporters. There’s a good following here today, it’s been tough for them as it’s been…
