EBBSFLEET U9 Whites faced Samuel Montague Lions and had to contend with a great deal of early pressure form the home side.
They defended well and, though both keepers were then kept busy, it was the Fleet's Donvie Jones who scored in the 23rd minute to win it for the Fleet.
THE U10 Whites' started brightly against Hayden Youth, yet were unable to create many goalscoring chances.
They were soon to regret not having made the most of their early dominance as Hayden came out strongly in the second half and scored within a minute.
With the Fleet pushing forward for an equaliser, they were hit on the break to concede another from which they were unable to recover.
FLEET U11s took on Long Lane Pumas in their penultimate game of the season. A goal apiece from Ben Francis and Jordan Manwaring gave them a well deserved 2-2 draw.
THE U13s produced a superb display to inflict on Canterbury City a 7-0 rout.
Bo Taylor got the Fleet off to a great start and then James West set up Billy Palmer for the Fleet's second.
A flick-on from West found Micheal Hanley soon after, and he beat the keeper from the acutest of angles.
City came out fighting in the second half and play moved from end to end, but they were unable to test the Fleet's keeper and Taylor, George Goodwin, Jack Easter and Bradley Setters settled the result.
