Ever-present left-back Aiden Palmer believes Ebbsfleet would give most Skrill Premier sides a run for their money if they won promotion.

Palmer, who joined the Fleet from Chelmsford last summer, has played every minute of every league game so far this season.

And he’s confident that not only can they get out of Skrill South, they can be a real force in non-league’s top flight.

Palmer said: "The players we’ve got are outstanding, the best players in the league. Every player in our team would get in any other team in this league – and this team can go higher.

"I see the teams in that league (the Premier) when I read The Non-League Paper and Ebbsfleet are better than the majority of teams in that league."

Palmer is one of the first names on the Fleet team-sheet and his consistent performances mean he’s bound to be in the running for the club’s end-of-season awards.

He said: "I never thought I was going to play this much because Joe Howe was left-back here all last season. I’m grateful to have played as much as I have."
