Fisher FC returns home after twelve years in Dulwich with friendly match against Farnborough OBG

 

 

Fisher FC is finally to return to its homeland after twelve years in Dulwich, with the team’s first match in the new stadium this weekend against Farnborough OBG.

The club has worked with Southwark Council and the Southern Counties East Football League to ensure the new St Paul’s stadium in Salter Road passed all inspections and ground grading tests ahead of the new season.

Fisher will host two pre-season friendlies as test events at St. Paul’s, before competitive football returns on August 13, with the first game of the new season against Rochester United.

Fisher Chairman Ben Westmancott said: “This is a huge step forward for Fisher FC, with football, finally being played back in Rotherhithe.

“A lot of hard work has been put in to reach this stage and everyone connected with the club is looking forward to celebrating reaching our goal of getting Fisher back home.

“These friendlies will be a great warm up not just for the First Team, but also for our matchday team – we’ll need to get our turnstile sharpness back!”

The News has previously reported on Fisher’s journey home, which has seen controversy over the tender process for the stadium, and its security.

Fisher fans can become part owners of the club for £10, and buy season tickets for £80.
