Signings like new – Deano brings in defensive reinforcements including international goalkeeper
Returning Fisher boss Dean Harrison has not wasted any time in moving to address the defensive frailties that have dogged the side all season, bringing in a host of experienced players to sure up things at the back.
All of Deano’s new signings will be familiar to the Fisher Faithful, having turned out in black and white in the past.
Montserrat international goalkeeper Nic Taylor spent some time with the club in 2011, and joins this time from Ashford United. Nic came through the ranks at Millwall and Crystal Palace, before embarking on a non-league career which has seen him between the posts for Hemel Hempstead United, Kingstonian and Cray Wanderers. Taylor has two international caps to his name, featuring in a 1-0 win over the US Virgin Islands and a 0-0 draw with Bonaire in 2014; Nic was an unused sub earlier in 2015 when Montserrat exited qualifying for the 2018 World Cup at the hands of Patrick Kluivert’s Curaçao.
Other returning players this week are the ever energetic full-back Harry Bugden who re-signs from Croydon, and defensive midfield general Daniel Lawson from Erith & Belvedere. Late on Friday we also had confirmation that Daniel Flemming will be returning from Beckenham Town to play at the heart of the defence.
Harrison is upbeat after assessing the squad over the course of this week, reporting that hard work on defensive shape is already starting to pay off. However due to a pre-existing commitment Dean won’t actually be in the dugout himslef tomorrow as the Fish swim to the Island to face Sheppey United for the third time this season. Assistant Manager Neil Hunter and Head of First Team Operations Jason Birchall will be leading the side, hoping to kick off the run towards SCEFL Premier Division safety.
