West targets his best

Michael West is hoping for his “best Ebbsfleet season” following his return to the club from Eastbourne Borough – and for anyone who remembers his contributions from 2010-12 especially, a reinvigorated West can only be a good thing. “I probably haven’t really enjoyed my football as much as I could have over the past few…

Fleet go West as club favourite returns

Michael West today returns to the club where he made a huge impact as he signs for a third spell in Fleet colours. The attacking midfielder broke into the Fleet first team from the club’s youth ranks as a 16-year-old, making his debut in the Kent Senior Cup in November 2007 before his league debut…

Fleet 1-1 Whitehawk

There may have been some inevitability about Michael West returning to Stonebridge Road to steal two points from the Fleet but the bigger story was 10-man Whitehawk snatching a point and Fleet missing a second-half penalty that sent supporters home frustrated. Fleet had set a much more positive scene at half-time leading by Anthony Cook’s 19th minute goal…

Fleet 4-1 Molesey

Matt Godden continued his blistering streak of form with another two strikes as Fleet’s early blitz of goals rocked a Molesey side who, after the initial setback, gave as good as they got in the second half. Daryl McMahon went for a 3-5-2 formation for the second week, though this time by choice, as Anthony Acheampong kept his…

Pooley pins his hopes on awesome foursome for charity

Fleet’s budding golf professionals swung into action to help raise money for charity this week. The Fleet entered a strong fourball in the FFT Golf Day on 7th October. Organised by the Fleet’s shorts sponsors, the day was in aid of the Effinity Charitable Foundation (which aims to broaden the horizons of disadvantaged young people…

Fleet keep quartet for new campaign

Ebbsfleet United have handed one-year contract extensions to four players ahead of the final game of the 2014/15 season. Lloyd Harrington, Joe Howe, Aiden Palmer and Michael West have agreed new deals to stay at Stonebridge Road and will be hoping to make big impacts in 2015/16 after missing chunks of this campaign. Long-serving pair…

Fleet 3-0 Whitehawk

You have to feel for Matt Godden a little. Having scored a hat-trick against Hythe Town in the FA Cup, he was upstaged by Karn Miller-Neave’s free-kick and today, having notched a brace in Fleet’s win over Whitehawk, the headlines were once again swept from under him as Michael West scored a goal with virtually his…
