We haven't been splashing the cash, admits Fisher boss

Wayne Burnett is playing down rumours of a huge playing budget at newly-promoted Fisher Athletic, reports the Non League Paper.

"We are very happy with the move to the Ryman League.  There are benefits in terms of travelling and it is a better standard.

"Lots of rumours have been going around about our budget.  But I just say to people " Don't believe everything you hear,".

"Yes, we have made some good signings with experience at a higher level.

"We have also kept 12 or 13 players who formed the nucleus of our squad last season.  So we haven't made changes on a drastic scale, but have added in terms of quality."

Fisher are half way through a two-year groundshare at Dulwich Hamlet, but return to the Surrey Docks Stadium next year as part of a long-term plan to reach the Conference.

"Sharing doesn't affect us at all," he added.  "It has become a second home to us.  The pitch at Dulwich has been made very playable."
