EBBSFLEET UNITED – SAT. 10 FEBRUARY

 

The club changed its name to Ebbsfleet United in 2007 following the demise of Gravesend & Northfleet, a team who played a home game at Villa Park in the FA Cup in the 1990’s. This is a new team for the Moors to play this season following their promotion from The National League South last year. So what can visiting fans expect? Generally there is no segregation in operation and if so away fans can get access to the Fleet Lounge club bar which is located inside the ground.  Other drinking establishments are few and far between with The George & Dragon a 10 minute walk away by Swanscombe rail station. There are plans to redevelop the whole of the Stonebridge Road ground over a period of time with the first phase being a new main stand which should be fully open for the start of the 2017-18 season. Depending on which end of the ground you stand you can either get a pleasant view of a wood covered hill or a towering electricity pylon.
