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.
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!
