Programme Notes 10.02.15

Last Saturday was a tough encounter against a big, physical side which we knew we’d be facing. We stood up really well, grew into the game and stopped them doing what they were good at. So it was of course disappointing to concede in the manner in which we did when I thought we were looking…

Fleet 3-2 Staines Town

Adam Cunnington made it six goals in four games as his brace helped Fleet to only their second league win at Stonebridge Road since September. But Staines Town pushed Fleet close with an industrious performance that kept the result in doubt to the final whistle. Jamie Day made three changes, with Kenny Clark and Ben Jefford…

Staines game rescheduled

The Vanarama Conference South match at home to Staines Town, originally scheduled for last Saturday, will now take place on Tuesday, February 10, kick-off 7.45pm. Postponed because of our involvement in the Trophy, the rearrangement will be a welcome home game for Jamie Day’s squad in an otherwise unbroken run of five away games. It…

Brown brings in wide man Kiernan

The Fleet have today sealed the signing of winger Brendan Kiernan as Steve Brown strengthens his squad going into the back end of the season. The right-sided player, who turns 22 next week, is no stranger to Fleet fans who saw him play four of Bromley’s five games against the Fleet last season. He was a…

Staines Town 0-2 Fleet

Fleet ended their recent run of winless games with a comfortable enough victory at bottom club Staines Town, though the Swans certainly showed enough mettle to suggest their place at the foot of the table shouldn’t last too long. In unseasonally warm sunshine for the first game of November, Steve Brown made two changes to…

Fleet keen on kick-start at Staines

Fleet go into Saturday’s clash at basement club Staines Town desperate to turn around a run of four games without a win. Last week’s home reverse at the hands of Hayes & Yeading aside, Steve Brown’s side have created a raft of chances – but haven’t converted them. That is the absolute minimum requirement the boss…

Staines Town 1 Fleet 1

A last-gasp own goal denied Fleet all three points at in-form Staines after a controlled performance looked to have all but confirmed the visitors’ play-off spot in front of Wheatsheaf Park’s biggest crowd of 2014. Steve Brown made just one change, Ben May coming in for Michael Thalassitis, as he sought to stop a Staines…

Match preview: Staines refuse to sing swansong

Six weeks ago, following Fleet’s relatively straightforward 3-0 demolition of Staines Town, the luckless Swans’ play-off challenge looked to have been sunk – much like their Wheatsheaf Park pitch at the time. But Marcus Gayle’s side have come roaring back into contention and Fleet’s visit west is by no means as easy as it might…

Brown Writes 15.02.14

Our last home game against Weston-Super-Mare was definitely a case of two points dropped. Cooky’s free kick that hit the post, Ben May’s header inside the six yard box, Billy’s one v one with the keeper and Michael Thalassitis not connecting with the cross when the goal was wide open were all golden opportunities to…

Fleet 3-0 Staines Town

Ebbsfleet United removed Staines’ threat with a first-half goal blitz that was more than enough to consolidate their position in the play-off zone and with it move to within a point of second-placed Eastleigh. With the weather once again eating up a large chunk of the Skrill South fixture list, Stonebridge Road withstood a downpour…
