Alex Reid returns to Stevenage

Ebbsfleet United can confirm that striker Alex Reid’s loan period has not been extended and, with the expiry of the original deal passed this weekend, he has returned to parent club Stevenage. Alex – who played in AFC Fylde’s play-offs and FA Trophy campaign last season – arrived in late August, making his debut as…

Fleet 1-1 Dagenham & Redbridge

With the Boxing Day order of service barely consigned to history, Fleet opened the new decade reading from much the same script, conceding late on to Dagenham as three points were again whittled down to one. Alex Reid’s opener and a promising first-half spell gave home fans hope that the revival might begin as the…

Dagenham & Redbridge 1-1 Fleet

The Fleet saw three points vanish from their grasp on the road as Alex Reid’s second-half goal wasn’t enough against a Dagenham side reduced to 10 men by the sending-off of Mitch Brundle with 20 minutes left. After the win at Enfield, Fleet predictably recalled Myles Weston in place of Tomi Adeloye while John Goddard…

Enfield Town 0-2 Fleet

Quickfire Fleet landed in the Second Round of the Buildbase FA Trophy as Alex Reid’s goal after 53 seconds sent them on their way. Gozie Ugwu added a second and Jordan Holmes saved a penalty as the visitors recorded a welcome clean sheet. Fleet made two changes, with Lawrie Wilson and Tomi Adeloye starting, Myles…

Woking 0-1 Fleet

Another cup replay against Woking and another win for the Fleet – but more pertinent it was the first, deserved victory under Kevin Watson. And now Fleet go into a First Round tie for a third crack at Notts County in the Emirates FA Cup. It came about via another Alex Reid goal against Woking…

Reid praises squad’s new lease of life

Despite the disappointment of Woking’s late penalty goal that takes Fleet to Surrey in midweek, home goalscorer Alex Reid had nothing but praise for the coaching staff who, he says, have added vigour and freedom as the players chase another win. “The new gaffer’s come in and the lads are all loving life under him,”…

Fleet 1-1 Woking

Three of the four cup ties between these clubs have gone to replays and you can now add another as Woking’s last-minute penalty crushed Fleet’s hopes of a First Round place at the first time of asking. A foul on Jamar Loza as time added on was about to be announced allowed Max Kretzschmar to…

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…

Woking 2-2 Fleet

Fleet secured one of their most important and surely most unlikely points of the season as they came back from the dead, two goals down with seven minutes on the clock. Woking missed a penalty after a dominant first-half but when they added a second goal 20 minutes from time, the visitors should have been…

“Undone by the 1%” says scorer Reid

Like most people inside the Kuflink Stadium, striker Alex Reid felt the minority overruled the majority in refusing the Fleet a penalty – but the minority were the only ones who mattered in the end. “I think probably 99% of the stadium and on the pitch thought it was a penalty,” Reid told BBC Radio…
