I had visited the original Fisher Athletic at their old Surrey Docks Stadium, diagonally across the other side of the road from the current ground, now built upon, on 17th February 1990 (1-2 versus Merthyr Tydfil, Conference, attendance 387).
Following the former clubs demise, a newly formed Fisher F.C. was elected into the Kent League for the 2009/10 season, playing games at Dulwich Hamlet F.C. I had seen two ‘home’ matches for the new club before tonight, both for pre season friendlies…..5th August 2011, 4-2 versus Lewisham Borough (Community), at Bacons College 3G, and 24th July 2012, 3-0 versus Bethnal Green United, at Burgess Park 3G. Fisher played their first game at their new St. Paul’s Sports Ground in July 2016.
Having been relegated last season, Fisher are looking to bounce back immediately, currently in third place in the league table. The visitors, who are in fourteenth place, never offered much resistance. Two minutes after Fisher went 2-0 up, through a neat chest down and volley from 12 yards, Phoenix had a very poorly struck penalty saved, and that was their chance of getting anything from the game gone.
This completes visits to all the Southern Counties East League grounds. It also takes the number of grounds required at Step 6 down to seven.
