It is 12 years to the day since some 40,000 fans descended on the then new national stadium at Wembley to watch Ebbsfleet United take on Torquay United. To celebrate the anniversary of our one and only appearance – and victory – at the famous venue, we’ll be streaming the entire match live from 2.45pm…

Watson praises outstanding centre-back pairing

Fleet boss Kevin Watson had warm words for his current centre-halves – Marvel Ekpiteta and Ayo Obileye – as he resisted the temptation to put skipper Jack King back in that role, preferring him to sit in front of the back line. “I thought my two centre halves were absolutely outstanding,” Watson said. “Even in…

Torquay United 0-0 Fleet

For two sides who had conceded 117 goals between them this season, this goalless draw might not have been the most obvious result before kick-off. But with defences on top and strikers on both sides largely isolated for the bulk of the 90 minutes, stubborn Fleet settled for a hard-fought point in Devon. Kevin Watson…

Fleet pray for Plain sailing on the Riviera

Fleet fans travel to Plainmoor for the first time since their side qualified for the National League play-offs there in 2018 with a very different set of priorities this time around. With the gap to safety eight points (regardless of whether fourth or fifth from bottom becomes the safety marker), the visitors know they have…

Fleet 2-4 Torquay United

Hopes of more points at home remained just that as they were dashed by an exuberant Torquay side who conjured up two early goals in each half to render Fleet’s late rallies ultimately futile. Josh Umerah gave Fleet hope of a revival with a first-half goal but familiar frailties after the restart broke the back…

Reids between the lines

Garry Hill recognised the thin dividing line between equalising and conceding in the second half at Harrogate Town and now has to hope the fine lines separate in Fleet’s favour over the next two home games. Much of that could depend on which one of the Reids is celebrating come full-time on Tuesday night, with…

Winfield hopes to conjure up a little bit of magic

Fleet skipper Dave Winfield returns to his former club Aldershot Town aiming to fire Fleet into the play-off semi-finals. Winfield, who as a 20-year-old played for the Shots against the Fleet in that epic FA Trophy semi-final a decade ago, goes back to his former employers for a second time this season. “We’re chuffed to…

Macca: “It wasn’t vintage, but I’m glad we got here”

Daryl McMahon won’t care much for the post-match analysis of Fleet’s Plainmoor party as his side got the point they came for. The Fleet boss, who refused to publically acknowledge the play-offs while his team consolidated in the Top 10, can bask for a while in a job very well done as his side finished…

Torquay United 1-1 Fleet

The Fleet have made the National League play-offs and finished as the highest-placed promoted side following Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Torquay United. They didn’t quite manage the three points that would have ensured a home tie and will have to stay undefeated on the road to earn promotion but given the recent run, who would…
