Ebbsfleet United In Focus

With the fans player fund swelling the war-chest by over  £30,000 in has come strikers Elder (Hereford Utd) and Ashikodi (York City); two from Brentford FC – Bellamy and Blake;  and defenders Walsh (Dagenham & Redbridge) and Patrick Ada (Burton Albion). It gets better with Liam Enver-Marum’s transfer to Stevenage FC  now definitely off,  which means he will be lining up for  The Fleet,  owned by My Football club, the innovative venture that saw football fans take over and run a football club in 2006. New chair Jessica McQueen proudly named a stand after heroic manager Liam Daish recently.
