On This Day: April 13th

This Easter Monday we were due to play Notts County at Meadow Lane – but it’s a ground we’re seemingly destined never to walk out at! Back in 2000, Fleet were denied a replay there in the FA Cup despite a late rally and went out 2-1. Three years later, we were seconds away from…

On This Day: April 10th

It’s Good Friday and with Boreham Wood the intended visitors, we instead look back again to previous April 10th encounters, the most recent of which was a memorable display under the lights against Wrexham that put us into the driving seat towards the play-offs… 10th April 1955 Fleet 2-2 Cheltenham TownJust two months into his…

Lawless adds composure in the middle

Alex Lawless completed 90 minutes in a Fleet shirt for the first time and it helped result in only the second win at the Kuflink Stadium in 2019/20. And the 34-year-old from South Wales helped his side to condemn the team from North Wales to the bottom of the league with a performance he says…

Fleet 2-1 Wrexham

“Must win” they said. And Fleet did just that. Myles Weston’s winner scythed through the box to give the home side only their second win at the Kuflink Stadium this season but it was greeted as warmly as any in recent years. Fleet leapfrogged Wrexham at the bottom of the table and for the third…

Basement battle raises questions home and away

If a week’s a long time in football, Fleet fans will be hoping four days proves to be a similarly far distance so they can put memories of Tuesday night’s reverse at Barnet far behind them. And manager Kevin Watson wants to consign the 5-2 defeat to “one of those nights” as his side look…

One goal was always going to win that, says boss

Ebbsfleet manager Garry Hill said he will need to strengthen his side to get the points on the board he requires after seeing Wrexham get “the big break” of a winning goal this afternoon. The Fleet boss had no complaints about his side’s effort but felt they didn’t take the chances they had early on…

Wrexham 1-0 Fleet

Fleet’s wait for a win at the Racecourse goes on after Paul Rutherford’s solo strike a quarter of an hour from the end decided the three points in the favour of the home side, writes Mark Halliday. In a game short on quality that looked destined for a goalless draw as Wrexham toiled to finish…

Reid returns to Racecourse as Fleet look to reverse Wrexham record

Alex Reid has scored three goals in four games and Fleet will need all his firepower and more as they seek to take something home from North Wales this weekend. The striker, currently joint top scorer alongside Myles Weston after both scored in the morale-boosting win over Barnet in midweek, played for Wrexham on loan…

Weston: with the fans behind us, we keep going

Fresh from terrorising the Wrexham defence from his left-wing berth, Myles Weston declared he was pleased to “give something back” to the fans for their backing. Weston, whose cross was deflected over the line by Wrexham skipper Shaun Pearson for the opening goal, has been in a rich vein of form lately and he’s spurred…
