Danny Kedwell leaves Ebbsfleet United as a player but retains Academy role: The greatest Fleet goalscorer of the 21st century won’t be forgotten in a hurry

Friday 28th June 2019

EBBSFLEET UNITED have announced the departure of 35-year-old striker Danny Kedwell.

Kedwell scored 65 goals in 206 appearances during his four-and-a-half-year stay at Stonebridge Road and is the club's 12th highest goalscorer in their history.

“It’s time to say goodbye to Ebbsfleet United,” Kedwell told www.ebbsfleetunited.co.uk.

“Getting into three play-offs and getting promoted in one as captain of the club, which I’ll never forget.

“I would like to thank my ex-teammates, they have all been a credit to work with day-in-day-out. 

“I made some great friends and I wish them all the best for the future and I’d like to thank all the fans for your great support, you’ve been brilliant.”

A statement from the Vanarama National League outfit said: “Fleet fans will surely remember Kedwell’s 100% efforts and non-stop work-rate as much as his goals and the sheer commitment of a player, who said at the beginning of last season that he’d happily play until he was 40 – and with tales of glued Achilles and pinned bones to play through the pain down the years, no-one would argue against that.

“Despite not returning to the club after turning down the reduced contract offer this summer, Kedwell won’t be a total stranger to Fleet fans this coming season, however, as he continues his role as Academy manager.

“Wherever he ends up in the next stage of a fine playing career, the club and supporters wish Danny all the very best and with the warmest thanks and fondest memories for all his many achievements in a red shirt.

“The greatest Fleet goalscorer of the 21st century won’t be forgotten in a hurry.”
