Science and sport to the fore as squad gets to work

Ebbsfleet United’s squad reported for duty first thing on Monday morning and were put through their paces on the training ground mere hours into their opening day. Fleet’s Head of Performance Lee Taylor put the players through a series of short, high-intensity sessions across three hours, with the squad’s new GPS trackers enabling live analysis…

Fleet 3-1 Brighton & HA U23s

Fleet made it through the summer without defeat as they hit three goals against Brighton’s U23s, almost mirroring the 3-0 win the last time the sides met six years ago. Gozie Ugwu was the chief tormentor as the home side created a number of chances for the striker and his header via a long kick…

Brighton’s young guns present final hurdle

Brighton & Hove Albion bring a young squad to the Kuflink Stadium on a rare Friday night football event as the curtain comes down on Fleet’s pre-season schedule. Unbeaten through five friendlies so far in July, the final warm-up game (and it’s certainly likely to be warm) presents Garry Hill with an opportunity to field…

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…

Addicks add new level of class for friendly

Charlton Athletic are expected to send a strong side to the Kuflink Stadium as Fleet’s pre-season friendlies step up a gear on Tuesday night. The newly promoted Championship side won 2-0 at Welling United last Saturday and fielded two different sides in each half, giving most of their first-team and U23s some 45 minutes or…

Pre-season admission reduced

Admission for this summer’s three pre-season friendlies at the Kuflink Stadium has been reduced from the club’s standard matchday admission. The Fleet entertain Tottenham Hotspur U23s on Saturday, July 13th, with Charlton Athletic following on Tuesday, July 16th, and a Brighton & Hove Albion squad rounding things off on Friday, July 26th. Admission for these…

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…

Spurs first up in home schedule

There will be an altogether different kind of test for the Fleet this Saturday as the Kuflink Stadium opens its doors on the 2019/20 season. Following two warm-ups at K Sports and Dartford, Ebbsfleet United manager Garry Hill believes the young legs of a largely U23 Tottenham side will mean his players chasing the ball…

Darts next up in summer schedule

The Fleet travel the short distance to Princes Park this evening to take on Dartford in our second pre-season friendly. Fresh from the 4-3 win at K Sports which saw a strong side fielded in the first-half and an eleven made up largely of trialists and academy players in the second, Garry Hill will take…

Main Stand lounge open to all for friendlies

The Main Stand Hospitality Lounge at the Kuflink Stadium will be open to all supporters for our first home friendly this Saturday v Tottenham Hotspur, as well as for the subsequent Charlton Athletic and Brighton & Hove Albion games. For the Spurs game, the Lounge will open from 1pm and then at 6pm for the…
