FLEET'S U13s travelled to Dover Athletic at the weekend and came away from the coastal club with an impressive 5-2 victory.

The visitors got off to a rusty start - perhaps understandably following a long break without any match action due to the many recent postponed games - and struggled to move the ball about against a physically strong Dover side.

Will Sims though capitalised on the first opportunity with the opening goal as he skilfully dribbled around the keeper to put the Fleet ahead.

Dover were always looking to push forward and forced a great save from Ebbsfleet's reserve custodian, George Goodwin, who unluckily saw the rebound fall to a Dover player for the hosts to draw level at 1-1.

The Fleet regained the advantage in the second half when Sims' great ball released Josh Algar, who slotted in neatly.

A determined Dover pressed again to equalise and they duly pulled it back to 2-2.

However, Ebbsfleet gradually started to play better and this improvement paid dividends.

Jack Easter netted a cracking goal, after being fed by Bradley Setters, and further strikes from James West and Sims took their team well clear in a convincing rout.
