Macca devises his spring into summer

The dust had barely settled on Prenton Park before Daryl McMahon was being grilled about 2018/19. With a police helicopter buzzing noisily overhead, the Fleet manager must have struggled to collect his thoughts on what 2017/18 had been all about, far less been able to present a coherent picture of its successor. Yet McMahon has…

We’ve built a club to be proud of, says Fleet boss

Daryl McMahon took solace in his side’s feats this season as he took in the cheers and well wishes of the Fleet fans following defeat at Prenton Park. “We’ve got a huge bond between the fans, the players and the staff and we’ve had to create that really, I suppose,” McMahon told BBC Radio Kent’s…

Fleet fend off the obituary writers to book a date with destiny

The media is poised, pen in hand, to write Fleet’s obituary for this season. But every time the ink dries, this Ebbsfleet side pulls something out of the bag to send all those pre-scripted words hurtling straight into the wastepaper basket. Nobody in North Kent dares whisper the ‘W’ word too loudly, far less the…

“It means so much and that’s obvious to see,” says Fleet skipper

Dave Winfield has a knack for important goals. Last season he netted a late winner at Maidenhead, then a crucial equaliser to dig Fleet out of a hole in the promotion final v Chelmsford and now he’s popped up on his former stomping ground to prolong his club’s season as it approached its last knockings….

Fleet through on penalties in epic drama

Aldershot Town 1-1 Fleet (Fleet win 5-4 on penalties) Ebbsfleet United are one game from Wembley after an incredible comeback to win on penalties at Aldershot Town. And it wasn’t one comeback, it was two, with Fleet equalising in the last minute of extra-time and then coming back from 3-1 down in the shootout to…

All aboard for the Eliminator

The Fleet’s flirtations with the Football League have been few and far between. Ambitious talk of becoming part of ‘The 92’ has raised its head during most decades of the club’s existence but it’s largely been fanciful or premature. There have only been four years when it’s actually been on the table and even then,…

Torquay United 1-1 Fleet

The Fleet have made the National League play-offs and finished as the highest-placed promoted side following Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Torquay United. They didn’t quite manage the three points that would have ensured a home tie and will have to stay undefeated on the road to earn promotion but given the recent run, who would…

McLean offers an old head for younger shoulders

Aaron McLean’s “Mystic Mac” predictions, when he foresaw Darren McQueen scoring the promotion-clinching goal, have already been well-documented but what is perhaps less well known is the role the veteran striker has played behind the scenes. As one of the club’s senior players, McLean has been only too happy to play the father figure during his…

Deering digs deep from past experiences

Voted man of the match in our online poll, chiefly for his role in being the springboard for both Fleet goals, Sam Deering channelled his previous finals experience to force his side over the line last Saturday. Deering lost the 2015 final with Whitehawk and then finished on the losing side once again with the Fleet last…
