Fisher: As a fan-owned club, we are absolutely committed to being run sustainably and to growing organically
FISHER are set to announce their new manager at their Annual General Meeting in June.
The club lost their entire management team despite finishing in a club personal best of third-place in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division table, having collected 85 points from their 38 league outings, six points adrift of promoted champions Cray Valley (Paper Mills).
The Rotherhithe based club issued a statement on its website www.fisherfc.org to provide an update on financial matters at the club and the search for Dean Harrison’s replacement.
“As the sun sets on a fine season for the Fish, the club’s attentions are focused firmly on preparations for next season.
“The club has already recorded its thanks to Dean Harrison, Neil Hunter and Jason Birchall for their contributions to the club and we would like to give our thanks and best wishes to first team coach, Richard White, who has also decided to move on from St Paul’s. We wish them all every success in the future.
“The club has received a large number of applications for the vacant managerial role and is in the process of finalising its shortlist and arranging interviews with candidates.
“We hope to be in a position to have positive news to report at the club’s AGM next month. The AGM will take place on Wednesday 12 June 2019 at St Paul’s and will get underway at 7pm.
“Off the pitch, too, the club has been moving in the right direction: turnover has grown significantly in each of the last two seasons, and the club is finally no longer loss-making.
“As a fan-owned club, we are absolutely committed to being run sustainably and to growing organically.
“The club will continue to spend only what it generates, and we think this is the best way of ensuring that there is still a Fisher FC in 5 years, 10 years and beyond.
“A reminder also that, as a fan-owned, volunteer-run club, we are always on the lookout for more help – all offers are gratefully received, but in particular we are on the lookout for people willing to help out as turnstile operators, stewards or behind the bar in the clubhouse. Please get in touch by email, on Twitter or on Facebook – all our contact details are on the club website.
“Finally, we’d like to thank all Fisher fans for their continued loyal support. Average attendances have been increasing steadily over the last three years as the club grows into it’s now not so new home, and that is great to see. We look forward to welcoming you all down to St Paul’s next season, and don’t be shy to bring a friend!”
