Ashmore ruling nothing out in Game 100

The last three players to reach 100 games for the Fleet all scored on their milestone appearances – Kenny Clark against Chelmsford, Danny Kedwell against Weston-super-Mare and Sean Shields against Warrington. It might be something of a tall order for the next Fleet centurion being that it’s Nathan Ashmore… but the goalkeeper isn’t ruling anything…

Fleet 1-1 Warrington Town

Sean Shields left it late, very late, to celebrate his 100th appearance for the Fleet with an equaliser deep into stoppage time that kept his side’s Buildbase FA Trophy hopes alive. Warrington Town, 36 places below the Fleet in the football pyramid, looked to have clinched the result of the round with a late goal…

Bromley 4-2 Fleet

Fleet were left with it all to do after allowing Bromley a three-goal first-half lead and almost fought their way back to a brave point after a spirited second-half performance until a late home goal decided this New Year’s Day fixture. Two deflected goals to add to the two that denied Fleet points over Christmas…

“Almost the pinnacle” for goal hero Shields

Sean Shields said his individual performance and the team’s overall display was “almost the pinnacle” for him as he scored his first goals at National League level. Talking to BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster, the winger said: “I want to excite the fans and be someone they enjoy watching, so for a day like today,…

Fleet 2-0 FC Halifax Town

Sean Shields came off the bench to deliver a deadly double as Fleet won their sixth match out of seven against Halifax at Stonebridge Road. The Shaymen were the league’s form side but Daryl McMahon’s men put in a fine performance and took the game by the scruff of the neck in the second half…

Whitehawk 0-3 Fleet

Fleet just keep on ticking over as another vintage “2017 performance” lifted Daryl McMahon’s side to the National South summit against a dogged Whitehawk who couldn’t quite keep their visitors at bay. Key to the Fleet’s recent successes has clearly been a solid shape and consistent personnel and the boss was able to name an…

Crossbar Challenge, Part Two…

In September, the first four Fleet squad players recorded their Crossbar Challenge at the club’s training ground and shortly before Christmas, another four likely contenders tried their luck in front of the new stand at Stonebridge Road. So, without further ado, can any of Dave Winfield, Mark Phillips, Stuart Lewis and Sean Shields better the achievements of…

Oxford City 1-3 Fleet

Fleet got their league campaign back on track after fighting back from a goal behind to take all three points at Marsh Lane. Goals from Charlie Sheringham, Sean Shields and Bradley Bubb overturned City’s early lead and moved the Fleet up to third place. Daryl McMahon made two changes over Fleet’s previous league game, bringing in…

Fleet 2-3 Maidenhead United

Red cards and late goals made for a great weekend at Welling but that was turned on its head this afternoon as 10-man Maidenhead capitalised on Fleet’s own late red card to take home a hard-earned three points. Fleet managed to keep headline act Dave Tarpey quiet but in so doing saw strike partner Sean…

Fleet 4-2 Truro City

Four more Fleet goals at Stonebridge Road didn’t seem on the cards as this game approached its climax but Jack Powell kick-started his side with his seventh and eighth strikes of the season as the home team propelled themselves into second place. Powell proved he was more than just a free-kick specialist with two well-taken goals from…
