Goalkeeper Preston Edwards is loving life under the new regime at Ebbsfleet after clocking up his 150th appearance last week.

Only four members of last season’s Fleet squad, including Edwards, were kept on at Stonebridge Road when Steve Brown succeeded Liam Daish as manager.

That followed the summer takeover by KEH Sports which saved the club from extinction after last season had ended in relegation and financial turmoil.

Edwards said: "It had to happen. You could see by the state of things last year.

"I remember playing Tonbridge Angels in the Kent Senior Cup at the end of last season. It felt like the end, it felt horrible.

"But things have moved on in a positive direction. It’s been a great turnaround this year and the club deserves it, with the investment that’s been put in.

"It’s been brilliant for me. The new management have come in, with a different way of playing, which has been good. I’ve enjoyed it because we’re winning games again."

As soon as he signed his new contract in June, Edwards was talking up Ebbsfleet’s Skrill South title chances and he remains just as bullish now.

"We’re third in the league but why can’t we look to the top?" he said. "We can win the league, 100%. There’s nobody to be frightened of."
