30th August 2008
Gravesend & Northfleet Football Club was born as a merger of two existing neighbouring clubs - Gravesend United and Northfleet United. Both had been playing football in the area since the 1890s, with Northfleet in particular notable as a Tottenham nursery side in the 1930s. The newly merged club formed in April 1946.
In May 2007, 61 years after the formation of Gravesend & Northfleet, the club announced a change of name to Ebbsfleet United. Then in November 2007, it was announced that the club was to be taken over by internet venture MyFootballClub.co.uk, a revolutionary idea involving paid members owning the club, voting on decisions and picking the team, a deal that was ratified in February 2008.
Managed by Liam Daish who has a reputation of being able to unearth talent at this level. Last May Liam led his team out at Wembley in front of 40,186 fans to win the FA Trophy.
Ebbsfleet, I think will be up with a chance of reaching the playoffs at least this year. So todays match will prove a tough battle for struggling Oxford.
