Two more leave for pastures new

The Fleet have continued their negotiations with players today and can announce that Shane Huke and Michael Corcoran have departed the club. Both players joined in the summer of 2013 and played in the 2014 promotion final before being re-signed in the summer. Defender Huke slotted into the centre of defence, earning rave reviews, until a…

After Staines, time for Bath…

As the man who scored against Saturday’s opponents Bath City in last season’s corresponding fixture (pictured), Shane Huke could have been forgiven for reminding his manager that if he needs any added firepower, then the centre-back has history against the Romans. In an interview for Saturday’s programme, Huke laughed off suggestions that he could repeat…

Four fix their Fleet futures

Ebbsfleet United have signed four of last season’s squad to new contracts as Steve Brown’s first round of player talks paid off. Anthony Cook, Michael Corcoran, Joe Howe and Shane Huke have committed once again to the red shirt, with negotiations ongoing among other players.

Huke on the home straight

Osei enters the establishment

Fleet manager Steve Brown has declared Osei Sankofa as “established” in defence following a run of appearances in place of the injured Shane Huke. The former Charlton player breezed through another test against free-scoring Bromley on Saturday alongside skipper Paul Lorraine and has barely put a foot wrong since replacing the unfortunate Huke. “Some people…

Bishop’s Stortford 3-2 Fleet

Fleet added some late respectability to the scoreline in a game where they came off second best against a side who moved into second place in Skrill South courtesy of three points tonight. Ben May started as lone striker, meaning Billy Bricknell was on the bench while Dean Rance returned in midfield and Chris Sessegnon…

Basingstoke Town 2-2 Fleet

Fleet earned their fifth draw in seven games as Shane Huke’s last-gasp equaliser cancelled out former Fleet midfielder Neil Barrett’s header and ended the home side’s 100% record on their own patch. Ebbsfleet made two changes to the side that drew against Bath, Michael Thalassitis returning from warmer climes to a drizzly Camrose, which meant…

Fleet 1-1 Bath City

Fleet’s appearance on the football pools this afternoon was probably guaranteed to produce another draw for the Stonebridge Road faithful as Bath defender Will Salmon returned to rob his old side of three points. Stacy Long replaced Dean Rance in the starting line-up while Michael Corcoran returned in place of Michael Thalassisits, away on international…
