I am now ready to get involved in football after three years out, says former Fisher boss Dean Harrison

Monday 04th April 2022

DEAN HARRISON says he is searching for a club to manage next season after three years out of the game.

The 46-year-old was in charge of Fisher when the Rotherhithe-based club finished their highest position of third in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division in April 2019, a year after winning promotion from the First Division behind Punjab United and K Sports.

“Fisher was a great period for me, getting a bounce back promotion and then finishing third in the Premier with the best defence in the league and fifth best in the country at Step Five was a great achievement on a shoestring budget,” said Harrison.

Leaving was a tough decision but the club were pulling what little budget we had and I knew the players would move on unfortunately.

“I’ve had three years out for personal reasons but I am now ready to get involved in football.”

Harrison has a reputation of getting results with limited resources when it comes to playing budgets.

“As an assistant manager, before I went to Fisher, I’ve won the Kent County League Premier Division with Stansfeld and three cups at Beckenham Town,” added Harrison.

“I know how to run a dressing room with discipline and have a high level of mutual respect with the players.”

Harrison said he would like to manage at Step Four or Five ‘but would look at Step Six if the club was ambitious and the right fit.”

Harrison added:  “Football’s the one thing in life I have no problem talking about with confidence.  I was brought up with it from the age of five and as much as I love to learn about the game constantly, basics will always be basics.  Get those right and you give yourself a fighting chance at any level.”
