Ahead of the visit of Ebbsfleet, here’s a look at one of their star men so far this season – Danny Kedwell.

Kedwell joined Ebbsfleet in January 2015 after leaving his hometown club Gillingham having spent four seasons at Priestfield where he scored 45 goals in over 130 appearances for The Gills. Whilst at Priestfield, Kedwell enjoyed a promotion to League One where he was the club’s top goal scorer with 16 goals.

Despite being in the midst of his twilight years at the age of 35, Ebbsfleet’s No.9 has enjoyed a good season thus far for The Fleet, having scored 12 National League goals in 34 appearances.

Last season, Kedwell enjoyed his best scoring spell for the club as he scored 20 goals in 53 appearances as Ebbsfleet finished 6th in the National League table, leading to a playoff semi final.

His most prolific season came whilst playing for AFC Wimbledon between 2008-2011 as he scored 67 goals in 118 appearances for The Wombles. Perhaps his biggest moment with Wimbledon came in 2011 as he scored the winning penalty in the Conference Premier Play Off Final against Luton, which took the club back into The Football League for the first time since their reformation. A fantastic lasting memory as he then went to sign for his hometown club Gillingham as aforementioned. Also during the 2010-11 season, Kedwell was voted into the Conference Premier Team of the Season for his efforts during the campaign.

Prior to this, the 35 year old spent time at a number of non-league clubs including Grays Athletic, Welling United and Herne Bay. However, it is perhaps likely Kedwell will see the remainder of his playing days with The Fleet, as Kedwell also has another role at the club as youth team manager.
