Fleet CEO speaks on Tonbridge result

Damian Irvine took the post-match questions in the absence of manager Dennis Kutrieb who was isolating as part of the club’s standard lockdown guidelines. “Covid protocols are standard throughout our club, whether you’re the manager, you work in the ticket office or you’re a player so it’s an isolation period for various different covid reasons,”…

Fleet 0-1 Tonbridge Angels

A goal seconds before the half-time whistle was enough for Tonbridge Angels to earn all three points in the Fleet’s second Kent derby of the week, Tommy Wood’s second goal of his week proving to be the match winner. Fleet fashioned chances but not enough to make Tonbridge sweat in the second half and the…

Tonbridge Angels 2-0 Fleet

Ebbsfleet United failed to make the Kent Senior Cup semi-finals after Tonbridge Angels built on a wasteful first-half performance to convert twice in the second half and proceed to the last four alongside Bromley, Gillingham and Maidstone United.

From Algarve to Angels…

Ebbsfleet United kick-off their pre-season friendly schedule (at least their UK-based one!) in rainy Tonbridge tonight, fresh from returning to these shores from sun-soaked Portugal. Fleet will wear their new yellow and blue away kit for the first time and Daryl McMahon could field the two as-yet-unnamed trialists that were given a runout in the…

Tonbridge 0-2 Fleet

The Fleet maintained their 100% record in their fourth match of pre-season but this one was hardly a classic, with two late goals from Robbie Willmott ultimately separating the sides. Daryl McMahon rang the changes again after the win at Welling and new signing Craig Braham-Barrett started the match, as did Sean Shields who had…

Academy gear up for final push

Ebbsfleet United’s Academy side head into their final games, starting this Wednesday (April 22) at home to Tonbridge.

Those fans who have been lucky…
