Keds announces departure

Danny Kedwell’s four-and-a-half-year stay at the Fleet has come to an end after the striker announced his departure on Instagram on Friday evening. The former Fleet skipper, who hit 65 goals in his time at Stonebridge Road (making him the 12th highest goalscorer of all-time at the club), said: “It’s time to say goodbye to…

Fleet 4-2 Braintree Town

Fleet got back to winning ways as Cody McDonald and Bagasan Graham registered their first goals for the club, with the former setting up his one-time Gillingham strike partner for the first of Danny Kedwell’s brace. Braintree got a lifeline courtesy of a sloppily defended corner and a penalty but the home side enjoyed the…

“We’ve shown we can play together”

As it was last Saturday, so it was this – Cheek and Kedwell on the scoresheet together. And the man of the moment, Michael Cheek with four goals in three games, insists that he and 60-goal Danny Kedwell can strike up a viable partnership. “There’s no pressure,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “I…

Aldershot Town 0-2 Fleet

Fleet came away from the EBB Stadium with a smile on their faces for the second time this year and their first double as two second-half goals saw off Aldershot Town. Michael Cheek’s scoring streak continued, Danny Kedwell made it 60 club goals and Nathan Ashmore chalked up his 50th clean sheet. As expected, Garry…

Fleet 4-0 FC Halifax Town

If the lack of goals under Garry Hill was becoming any sort of weight on the new manager’s shoulders, it was well and truly lifted in a dominant Fleet display as they brushed aside FC Halifax Town at the Kuflink Stadium. It was Fleet’s seventh win in eight home games over Halifax and equalled the…

Danny dumbfounded by disallowed goal

Danny Kedwell was as mystified as most inside the Kuflink Stadium when his second ‘goal’ was chalked off by referee Josh Smith. As the game headed into the final eight minutes of normal time, Kedwell latched on to a forward ball and outmuscled defender Kyle Jameson prior to despatching a shot past goalkeeper Joel Dixon….

Fleet 1-0 Barrow

Much like the 1-0 win against Solihull which set Fleet on last season’s roll after a poor spell of form, so this three points was greeted with glee all around the Kuflink Stadium. Danny Kedwell’s first-half strike – his first goal at home this season – ultimately proved the difference but Daryl McMahon will take…

Dagenham & Red. 1-3 Fleet

Six games without a win, Fleet delivered in some style with a convincing 3-1 win at Dagenham & Redbridge, the first win at Victoria Road in 12 years to maintain the visitors’ impressive away record. Daryl McMahon handed new signing Reise Allassani his debut alongside the recalled Danny Kedwell, while Kenny Clark returned to the…

Wrexham 4-1 Fleet

Ebbsfleet United were well-beaten by a merciless Wrexham first-half performance at the Racecourse, a venue the Fleet haven’t won at in six attempts. Indeed the Fleet haven’t been 4-0 down at half-time since March 2013… and that happened here as well, in a game that followed a familiar pattern with Fleet finding a consolation late…

Eastleigh 0-1 Fleet

It was an unchanged Fleet once again versus an Eastleigh side with an injury to goalkeeper Graham Stack and striker Ben Williamson and Andy Hessenthaler’s side could only name three substitutes. Eastleigh, buoyed by their win at Dover, were confident early on and looking to make home advantage count. They were almost given that advantage…
