Former Millwall striker torments Fisher – but charity walk from St Paul’s to Chislehurst a success

Fisher slumped to a 3-0 defeat to Glebe at Foxbury Avenue last weekend – after the hosts played for more than an hour with an outfield player in goal.

The Fish fell behind in just the second minute when Aaron Watson – who had scored after twelve seconds the previous game – turned Luke Thomas on the right side of the penalty area before his deflected shot went in.

It took Fisher a quarter of an hour to get into the game with left-winger Courtney Swaby a threat but his deep cross just evaded Malaki Coker coming in from the right.

Fisher goalkeeper Dan Carpanini saved a shot from Jamie Philpot before Sam Fitzgerald was booked for pulling back the former Millwall striker.

Philpot wasn’t going to be denied for long, however, as in the 27th minute he brilliantly played in Lauris Chin who dinked the ball over Carpanini.

Fisher were then handed a potential way back into the contest when Thomas put Coker through and Glebe goalkeeper George Kamurasi fouled the winger to earn a straight red card.

With no goalkeeper on the bench, Glebe had to replace 6ft6ins Kamurasi with 5ft5ins outfield player Sam Johnson with over an hour of action left.

The visitors’ Isaac Thompson and Michael Sarpong were both booked for trying to stop Chin from breaking through as Glebe kept their opponents away from their diminutive stopper.

In the 66th minute, Philpot again found Chin but this time he couldn’t get on the end of the cross.

Fisher’s frustrations started to boil over late on and Lee Weemes was booked for leaving a boot in on Johnson, sparking a melee.

With five minutes left, Johnson picked up a second yellow card as Fisher were reduced to ten men.

And there was more bad news for the 32 travelling Fisher fans when Ryan King-Elliot made it 3-0 in the third minute of added-time.

Fisher FC Community and The Proper Blokes Club organised a walk from St Paul’s to Chislehurst

It wasn’t all doom and gloom, however. A ten-mile walk from St Paul’s to Chislehurst that was organised by Fisher FC Community and The Proper Blokes Club aimed to highlight the issue of men’s health and raise money for charity.

Fisher boss Ajay Ashanike thanked those who participated in the walk and paid tribute to Glebe.

He said: “Hands down best Glebe side [we] have ever faced. Man for man today they were at it.

“Full respect to what they are doing and how they play the right way

“Thank you to all the fans that walked today. Should be proud of yourselves.”

The result left Fisher thirteenth in the SCEFL Premier Division table with sixteen points from fourteen games. Glebe are third.

The Fish travel to K Sports in Aylesford this Saturday. Kick-off is 3pm.
