David Preston

Everyone at the Fleet Supporters’ Trust were saddened to hear that a lifelong supporter, David Preston has passed away, having lost his long battle with cancer. He was very passionate about the Fleet, and after meeting Denis Kutrieb at the club in August 2020, was relishing the start of the new campaign. He volunteered at one of the Fleet games held behind closed doors, so he did manage to get in one last game in person. We all send our condolences to his Sister, Joan and all members of  the wider family! When we all get back to Stonebridge Road, we’ll miss seeing him pre-match in the Trust bar!

Snow is best in December!

Everyone at The Fleet Supporters’ Trust would like to send congratulations to John Snow on winning the December award for Volunteer of the Month in the Vanarama National League South.

John is a Fleet Trust Board Member, and one of the Fleet’s regular volunteers on matchdays and at many other times as needed, a role that has carried new responsibilities in recent months with additional Covid guidelines being required for all at the ground. He has been helping out at the club for many years and manages the workload with his colleague Chris Judge and other Trust and club volunteers, taking full responsibility for what needs to be done on a daily basis. So far this season he has been involved in painting the pitch walls and adding the yellow lines to the terraces which in itself is a huge job – and particularly important due to social distancing once fans are allowed back.


Membership Renewal

After canvassing the views of Fleet Supporters’ Trust Board members it has been agreed that ALL Fleet Supporters’ Trust Memberships will be automatically renewed for season 2020/2021.

This will be at Standard Membership level. If you hold membership at a higher level and/or pay by Standing Order please continue as normal.

It is hoped that when Members are able to attend matches those who are able to pay will then pay their £10 fee and get their card stamped. It is necessary in all cases to get your card stamped.

When away travel is permitted priority will be given to those Members who have paid their fees.

Should you wish to pay by Standing Order or Paypal the relevant forms can be found on the Membership page.

The Fleet Supporters’ Trust welcome Dennis KUTRIEB on his appointment as Ebbsfleet United Manager.

We wish him every success in the role and look forward to meeting with him when it is possible to do so. We will all give him every support during the coming season – whenever it starts! ⚽️

Alzheimer’s & Dementia Support Services

On behalf of everyone here at Alzheimer’s & Dementia Support Services I am writing to thank all the members of The Fleet Supporters’ Trust for your wonderful donation of £1,000 towards our replacement minibus fund.

We were so sad to lose our mini bus and to see it all burnt out left us speechless.  Such a pointless act of vandalism.  We have been lifted by the thoughtfulness of our community who are supporting us in our endeavours to get a new bus and we are so grateful to you  for such a large donation.


ALL away travel bookings should now be made via John Burgess 07951 610878 or Tracy Down 07764 731633 or via the Trust Office on matchdays/evenings. Payment at the time of booking is preferred!

Ticket Membership Scheme 

The club in conjunction with the Fleet Supporters Trust has clarified our sales processes and introduced a club membership scheme to aid the provision of tickets for high-priority matches.
Using the existing Trust membership scheme as the basis, this will now be the recognised method of ticket sales going forward. The Trust already holds a full membership database and rather than “reinvent the wheel”, this allows us to channel membership through an existing scheme.

Membership of The Fleet Supporters’ Trust will remain at the level of £10 per year and can be joined at the Trust Hut on match days or via the Trust website here

As such, the priority of future all-ticket games will be as follows:
DAY 1 SALES (ticket sales opening times announced on a per-match basis)
Full season-ticket holders only – one ticket per holder
Half season-ticket holders only – one ticket per holder
Fleet Supporters Trust Members – must be stamped card holders
General sales subject to availability – one ticket per person


• If I have a full season-ticket and am a Fleet Supporters Trust member can I buy on both Day 1 and Day 3? – YES
• Can I bring friends’ season tickets and half season-tickets along with me to purchase theirs if they cannot make it down? – YES (provided you have their ticket or ticket number with you)
• Are Fleet mini-five tickets included? – NO, priority is for full season-ticket holders first and then half season-ticket holders only
• What’s to stop non-regular fans purchasing Trust membership to gain a priority ticket? – Tickets will only be sold on Day 3 to fully paid-up Trust members whose membership is valid on or before a date to be advised
• How can children’s tickets be purchased? – Youth season-ticket holders obviously fall under the ‘Day 1’ category with adult ST holders. Alternatively, there is a junior membership option for joining the Trust at a cost of £3 for U16s or family membership for two adults and two children which is £20. Please enquire via the Trust for this membership
Trust chairman John Burgess said: “Hopefully this scheme will help alleviate the problems encountered by some supporters last year and help regular supporters who are unable to get a full or half-season ticket to attain some priority in ticket purchase. It is already extremely good value to join the Fleet Trust as a member – in only the first two away matches of the season at Guiseley and Dagenham & Redbridge, members would have saved the cost of membership on two coach journeys alone. And now there is ticket priority built in to membership, too.”
