PUBLISHED: 12:01 22 June 2019
Fans of Ebbsfleet United Football Club have launched their own association.
It has been named Fleet Heart Independent Supporters Association and was launched was on Saturday, June 22.
The newly formed group was founded by seven supporters who said it has a mandate to build a communication path between club and supporters and to actively work with Ebbsfleet United in building relationships for the benefit of all parties.
The launch was made online and on social media and included an invitation to all supporters of the club to join.
Fleet Heart Independent Supporters Association was formed after recent events both on and off the pitch led to fan speculation and conflicting opinions regarding affairs and there appeared to be a shortage of information coming through to either refute or confirm rumours.
Fleet Heart chairman Ray Peck said by having an association that focuses on building communication, it is hoped that supporters will be able to be in the picture and truly feel part of the club they love.
