Mills fills first National League berth

Striker Danny Mills has become Ebbsfleet United’s first new signing of the close season after the 26-year-old departed Whitehawk last month. Fleet boss Daryl McMahon swooped quickly with other clubs hot on Mills’ heels to land the 6ft 4in hotshot after his five years in Sussex came to an end. Mills joined the Hawks in…

Danny delivers his double top

The last time Danny Kedwell scored twice in a match, he fired Fleet to the top of the table. Now, having notched a brace for the first time since the opening day of the season, the skipper has done it again, seeing his side overhaul Maidenhead United at the top of the league. It was the…

“We focus on no-one else” says Fleet boss

Daryl McMahon was in a buoyant mood after what he described as a terrific win over Whitehawk but moved to dilute talk about returning to the No.1 spot in the league. “I don’t care what happens anywhere else, I know other people want to talk about it,” the Fleet boss told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster….

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…

Fleet must keep Hawks grounded

With newly crowned manager of the month Daryl McMahon having presided over five league wins from five in 2017, opponents will once again be doing their level best to knock Fleet from their perch. For Whitehawk, that is likely to be doubly so. Beaten by the Fleet at Stonebridge Road in the play-off semi-finals last season,…

Manager’s Notes 16.08.2016

A warm welcome back home to you all after our last two games on the road where we picked up four more points to add to the three against Poole Town. I think we’ve had a good start considering the amount of injuries in pre-season. It’s been a stop-start process getting people ready for competitive…

Macca reaction: “We know that wasn’t good enough”

Daryl McMahon pulled no punches after Fleet’s draw with Whitehawk, claiming his side’s second-half performance simply wasn’t good enough. “I thought we were poor for 11 v 10, didn’t move the ball quick enough and went too deep,” the Fleet boss told Charles Webster. “We were clinging on, we looked nervous and we shouldn’t be. We…

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…

The Hawks are back in town

Three months on from the play-off semi-finals and the epic second leg against Whitehawk, the Sussex club are back at Stonebridge Road… but not as we know them. Manager Pablo Asensio has completed a transformation of the playing squad and could field as few as three of the side that featured in the Hawks squad…

Fleet 1-2 Whitehawk (3-3aet / 3-2 on pens)

Nathan Ashmore saved the crucial spot kick from Jake Robinson in a penalty shootout to send Fleet into the National League South promotion final after they were pushed all the way by Whitehawk. It wasn’t quite the easy path to the final of previous play-off campaigns for nervous home fans who had to withstand a Whitehawk…
