Seven departures on Fleet list

Ebbsfleet United can confirm that the club will not be renewing contracts of seven players when they expire this summer. As we all know, with the remaining matches cancelled, the Board of the National League are working to finalise whether play-offs will take place and how other “sporting outcomes” will be concluded. The club has…

Fleet 1-0 King’s Lynn Town

The man who might not have been on the pitch but for a sending-off won this tie with a cool second-half spot-kick as 10-man Fleet booked their place in Round 3 of the Buildbase FA Trophy for the first time in five years. Substitute Ayo Obileye, who had come on in the first-half in a…

Fleet 3-0 Barnet

A lot, lot better was what Garry Hill asked for and a lot, lot better was what Garry Hill got. Ebbsfleet achieved their first win at home, their first clean sheet and their first three-goal tally to lift themselves three places off the bottom of the league with a fine win over play-off-chasing Barnet. Supporters…

Dover Athletic 1-1 Fleet

The third 1-1 draw at Crabble between these two sides in succession is likely to please Garry Hill more than his opposite number. Ayo Obileye’s first-half opener looked set to upset the form book until Will De Havilland headed the Whites’ reply in the second-half. In contrast to Dover’s unchanged side, there were five tweaks…

Fleet 2-1 Charlton Athletic

Fleet picked up their second friendly victory and did so in some style over a very strong Charlton Athletic side at the Kuflink Stadium this evening. Ayo Obileye’s fourth goal of pre-season, courtesy of a penalty, and a second by trialist striker Tomi Adeloye were too much for Charlton to pull back despite a late…

Fleet 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur

Fleet twice took the lead but saw themselves pegged back both times as Tottenham’s U23s departed the Kuflink Stadium with a draw. There was another goal for Ayo Obileye and a screamer by Aswad Thomas to light up the occasion for home fans as the Fleet enjoyed the upper hand for large parts of the…

K Sports 3-4 Fleet

Goals by Gozie Ugwu, Ayo Obileye (2) and Academy player Tahjae Anderson gave Fleet victory at Cobdown this afternoon against SCEFL Premier Division side K Sports. It was the opening pre-season friendly for both clubs and Fleet travelled with four trialists and seven Academy players in their squad. But it was the 10 current first-teamers…

Ayo’s all about the clean sheets this term

Fleet’s first signing of the summer, Ayo Obileye, might well have finished last season with a goal for Maidenhead but it’s keeping his new side’s defensive record intact that is focusing the mind ahead of the pre-season programme. Obileye struck a fine shot from outside the box against Chesterfield on the last day of the…

Fleet boss gets down to business as Ayo signs

Garry Hill made his first signing of the close signing as he added central defender Ayo Obileye to the forthcoming Motorama National League campaign. The 24-year-old, who has Football League experience with Dagenham & Redbridge, arrives at the Kuflink Stadium with plenty of National League games behind him. The 6ft 3in former Sheffield Wednesday and…
