THE U9 Whites notched up another victory with a fine 5-2 home win over Darenth River.
Donvieve Jones opened the scoring for the hosts before Sam Miles added a second.
The visitors fought back to level proceedings with two strikes in the space of six minutes, but Fleet's central defensive pairing of Worthington and Power managed to hold it together and prevent Darenth's rampaging forwards adding any more.
Supersub Harjit Samra then bagged a brace in four minutes before Miles got his second to secure the triumph.
AN unlucky U10 Reds put in an excellent performance, but could not find the breakthrough in front of goal as VCD held them to a scoreless away draw.
Harry Martin-Clements was given the man-of-the-match award.
EBBSFLEET U10 Whites were unable to match unbeaten, table-toppers Dartford as they suffered a 4-0 reverse.
The Fleet started strongly and fought hard for every piece of possession but, try as they might, they could not hit the target and it was Dartford who snatched a brace either side of half-time in a match where Jay James was named man-of-the-match.
THE U11s moved effortlessly through to round two of the Bexley Cup after a superb 10-0 win over Our Lady Youth from Sidcup.
Ben Francis was topscorer with a hat-trick while George Jordan (2), Jack Best (2), Sam Stewart, Joe Harpley and Charlie Steward completing the scoring.
A HARD-FOUGHT 3-2 victory at Ashford saw the U13s move to the top of the league. Despite going behind twice, efforts from Bradley Baker and Bradley Setters, the second coming from an excellent delivery by Jack Easter from the right wing, pulled them level both times.
Setters was then on hand again in the last minute to get on the end of a free kick to finish the scoring, much to the delight of the home fans.
THE U14s travelled to Ashford Borough and were soundly beaten 3-1 with the Fleet's goal coming from Jack Mahoney.
