A BUSY weekend of league and cup games saw Fleet Youth sides register a mixed bag of results.
The U9 Whites were in fine fettle at Eltham Lions and notched up a stunning 8-1 win.
The home team were given no time to settle and conceded to Sam Miles after just 20 seconds. Grant Runter and Jaydn Gildea chipped in with a hat-trick and a brace respectively while Harry Clancy and Donvieve Jones completed the scoring.
Ebbsfleet U9 Reds were also in a goalscoring mood as they convincingly beat Hexley Rangers 13-0 in the preliminary round of the Bexley Cup.
A double hat-trick from Zachary Garratt and goals from James Miles, Aidan Hoadley, Jack Fenton, Luke Carey and a Daniel Birch penalty ensured the resounding away victory.
Fleet U10s continued their return to form with a convincing win over Darent River with Luke Walker scoring twice, Liam Rosenfield adding to his season tally and Max Taylor finally breaking his drought with a well deserved goal to seal the 4-2 triumph.
Junior Reds could not break down the U11s' stubborn defence as Benji Fenton and Danny Siggers gave their side a 2-1 league success.
The U13s faced tough opponents Bromley in the first round of the Geerings Challenge Cup.
Ebbsfleet took the lead with a terrific strike from Sims from the far right of the box.
Bromley equalised and then, against the run of play, they took the lead. The Lillywhites went further ahead before Michael Hanley made it 3-2, yet the Fleet had left their fightback too late.
The U14s progressed to the second round of the Kent FA Youth Cup after an emphatic 17-0 mauling of Red Arrow Youth. George Cox (5), Robbie Cameron (4), Conor Evans (2), Kaiyne Woolery (2), James Fennings (2) and one each for Daniel Abbett and Daniel Sewell earned the result.
