Whitely goes Welsh in EFL move

Corey Whitely

Corey Whitely is the second Fleet player to move up a division this summer as he completed a move to League Two play-off finalists Newport County earlier today. This follows on the heels of former teammate Ebou Adams’ move to Newport’s fellow play-off contenders Forest Green Rovers last week, both for undisclosed fees. The 27-year-old…

Fleet 3-0 Maidenhead United

Goal-starved Fleet fans were treated to a virtuoso second-half performance as their side rattled in three goals against Maidenhead United to finally separate these two sides after three successive 1-1 draws. Gozie Ugwu, back for his second spell at the club, provided two assists for Michael Cheek and was unfortunate not to get on the…

Braintree Town 0-4 Fleet

Fleet put four past Braintree Town for the second time in a week but on this occasion with no reply to make it three wins from three over Christmas and move within three points of the play-off spots. And they did it with the now-familiar quickfire start, opening the scoring inside three minutes as a…

Salford City 1-1 Fleet

Fleet pulled a performance out of the bag under the most trying of circumstances to become only the third team to take points off leaders Salford at home. A gutsy, committed 90 minutes from front to back denied Salford a win on the day they equalled a club record 14th game unbeaten and it sets…

Fleet 1-3 AFC Fylde

AFC Fylde boosted their credentials with a clinical second-half display and a late goal that killed off a Fleet revival sparked by a truly wonderful strike from substitute Corey Whitely. The third goal on the break was a sucker punch and the opener a rather fortunate cross from Danny Rowe but in between the Fylde…

Barnet 0-3 Fleet

The Fleet only ever won twice at Underhill, but they started off life at The Hive with a comprehensive win over Barnet. Corey Whitely’s third goal of the season helped seal the win but he finally let some teammates in on the action with Danny Kedwell and Sean Shields finding the net either side of…

Hartlepool United 0-1 Fleet

Corey Whitely kick-started Fleet’s ‘Goals For’ column on Tuesday night from the bench and he did the same for his side’s ‘Wins’ column this afternoon as a strike 20 minutes from time was enough to give the visitors their first three points of the season. It was the same result that Fleet achieved at Victoria…

Fleet 3-0 Wrexham

Fleet provided yet more entertainment at the Kuflink Stadium as a clinical second-half performance punished the tightest defence in the division to the tune of 3-0. Home supporters have had to part with plenty of admission money in recent weeks but most will agree they’ve been recompensed in full with a healthy diet of drama,…

Leyton Orient 1-1 Fleet

It was honours even at the Matchroom Stadium as – just as occurred 25 years ago – Fleet took the lead against Leyton Orient only to be pegged back before half-time. The O’s may have had some good fortune to see Dave Winfield turn the ball into his own net for the equaliser but they…

FC Halifax Town 1-2 Fleet

Fleet came from behind to record their first ever win at The MBi Shay with Corey Whitely’s debut goal and Luke Coulson’s second in as many games handing the visitors all three points in West Yorkshire. Just as a win over FC Halifax at the Kuflink Stadium was Fleet’s first back-to-back success of the season,…
