St Albans City 3-2 Fleet

The Fleet suffered their first defeat in 90 minutes this season as St Albans rallied from 2-0 down to take the points courtesy of a second-half Shaun Jeffers header. Will Wood started in defence for the visitors, with Tom Hadler, Adam Mekki, Josh Payne and Rakish Bingham returning to the line up as well. Jake…

Fleet 1-1 (8-9pens) Chippenham Town

Late equalisers and penalty kicks for the second Emirates FA Cup tie in succession had the Fleet tantalisingly close to the Fourth Qualifying Round – but the footballing gods had other outcomes in mind as Chippenham prevailed in an extraordinary 17-goal shootout. With the score at 4-4 at the end of the regulation five penalties,…

Fleet 1-1 Dulwich Hamlet

The first Fleet-Dulwich clash for almost 20 years ended all square as the 10-man home side battled and fought for almost an hour following Jake Goodman’s red card – and had the better chances to win the game. Rakish Bingham put the Fleet ahead while it was 11 v 11 but former Fleet striker Danny…

Braintree Town 0-3 Fleet

It’s four years since Fleet last won an opening-day game and kept a clean sheet – 4-0 v Poole Town – and we all know what happened that season! There’ll be nobody getting ahead of themselves in the Ebbsfleet camp at this early stage but this was a convincing win nonetheless by Dennis Kutrieb’s men,…

Hartlepool United 0-1 Fleet

Few observers gave the Fleet much chance of making it a third 1-0 win in a row at Hartlepool, but Kevin Watson’s men did just that to maintain an unbeaten record against the home side, writes Mark Halliday. A late Gozie Ugwu penalty, the striker’s 13th goal of the season and 11th in the league,…

Fleet 0-1 Stockport County

As they did at Edgeley Park, Stockport County pulled the rug from under the Fleet in the final minutes to come away from the Kuflink Stadium with their first win here. It was a tough result on the Fleet who had certainly done more than enough in matching their opponents for a draw, although neither…

Maidenhead United 1-3 Fleet

Fleet got the win their precarious position absolutely demanded with a superb first-half response and a stalwart second-half stand that brought them to within five points of their opponents. Josh Umerah equalised a dubious early Maidenhead goal and Gozie Ugwu fired two efforts within a minute of each other on the half-hour for the points….

Chesterfield 4-0 Fleet

Nathan Tyson became the first substitute in Chesterfield history to score a hat-trick as the Notts County loanee won the game for the home side. From off the bench, Tyson dealt the knockout blow to leave Fleet on the ropes as the last half hour became a difficult watch for the 126 travelling fans. Kevin…

Fleet 0-2 Royston Town

A place in the last eight of the Buildbase FA Trophy will have to wait as far as the Fleet are concerned with Kevin Watson’s side becoming the next victim of Royston Town’s impressive collection of cup scalps this season. In a listless, uninspired performance, Fleet were forced into extra-time following a goalless 90 minutes…

Fleet 1-1 Sutton United

Fleet stooped the rot in recent home games against Sutton United by taking an early lead but the U’s battled back in the second half to earn a share of the spoils. There was plenty of optimism in a solid first-half for the Fleet that back-to-back wins could be achieved but Sutton’s improvement after half-time…
