Fleet boss asked his players to “win the second-half”

Words may have been uttered at half-time but there were no teacups flying according to Garry Hill, as he said his first objective after coming in 3-0 down was to calm the changing room. “There was frustration at half time,” Hill told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “They are shell shocked, emotions are running high and you have to first…

We did ourselves no favours – Hill

Garry Hill didn’t mince words as he watched Fleet fall to a disappointing defeat to Dagenham & Redbridge, the visitors confirming their survival in the National League in the process. “We’ve not done ourselves justice today by our standards,” Hill told BBC Radio Kent’s Matt Cole. “If you looked at a team out on the park today who were chasing…

Weston: with the fans behind us, we keep going

Fresh from terrorising the Wrexham defence from his left-wing berth, Myles Weston declared he was pleased to “give something back” to the fans for their backing. Weston, whose cross was deflected over the line by Wrexham skipper Shaun Pearson for the opening goal, has been in a rich vein of form lately and he’s spurred on by the Fleet support.…

Gozie’s got his bearings back in a Fleet shirt

With spells at the Fleet such a long time apart, Gozie Ugwu could be forgiven for losing his bearings. But with his fifth goal for the club secured seven years after his fourth, he’s certainly not suffering from any problems in finding the target. “When I first arrived at the ground [to sign],” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Matt Cole,…

Hill bemused by Drury red card

Garry Hill was on the pitch to appreciate his players’ efforts at the end of the game and was mystified as to why Durham referee Andrew Miller red-carded Andy Drury. “I was three yards from Andy Drury,” Hill told BBC Radio Kent’s Ben Watts, “and basically the referee has turned round and said he’s sent him off for foul and…

Fleet boss thanks tremendous support

They might not have seen any goals in the 600-mile round trip from north Kent but Garry Hill hoped the travelling contingent returned from Barrow appreciative of their threadbare squad’s efforts. “The travelling supporters who have got up very early this morning and made a long journey… tremendous, tremendous support,” Hill told BBC Radio Kent’s Paul Fisher. “They work hard…

Ashmore the difference between one point and nothing

Ashmore the difference between one point and nothing

Fleet goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore came in for praise from his manager after a late save meant Fleet were the first side in 17 games to stop Hartlepool United scoring. “Nathan Ashmore’s made a very important save again,” Garry Hill told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “Nathan Ashmore at the moment is playing very, very well. In the few games we’ve…

Red cards haven’t surprised me, says Garry Hill

Red cards haven’t surprised me, says Garry Hill

Garry Hill was choosing his words very carefully after seeing his side succumb to a second-half Solihull goal and then two late red cards in a post-match interview where the referee’s actions dominated the conversation. “It was a strange ending to a game,” said a restrained Fleet manager. “A lot’s gone on. When I look at the game first of…

“I fancied us to win it” says disappointed Hill

“I fancied us to win it” says disappointed Hill

Garry Hill put into words what all Ebbsfleet fans were thinking as his side went from a position in the ascendancy to despair, all within a few seconds of time added on. It was a familiar reverse at the hands of former National South rivals Sutton but Fleet had been much the better side in the second half. “Football does…

Fleet boss lauds a “freshness about the place”

Garry Hill believes a fresh wind blowing through the Kuflink Stadium has helped the Fleet end the calendar year on a real high as his side put Eastleigh to the sword in the final game of 2018. “You can see a lot of freshness about the football club at the present time,” the manager told BBC Radio Kent’s Matt Cole.…
