For the first timers, the groundhoppers, the Millwall neutrals and lapsed Fish members, friends and family we give you three worthwhile reasons to make the trip down to St Paul’s this Saturday.
1 South London derby
If there’s one thing guaranteed to get the blood pumping and set the pulses racing it’s a south london derby. There’s always something special about these meetings, something in the air, you can tell there’s a sense of occasion, a sense of expectation, a sense of pride. On the pitch the players energy levels seem to intensify which makes for a passionate atmosphere and some electrifying football. And when you add to that the fact that Fisher are playing some of most exciting football they’ve played in years this is going to be one hell of a game.
Forest Hill Park are based down the road in Lewisham and are currently 15th in the table, but they will no doubt be coming to St Paul’s for a win and hopefully bringing some travelling fans with them. Naturally we’ll welcome them with our usual Bermondsey hospitality. Fisher has got some of the noisiest and most committed fans in Southern Counties, so come down and join in the fun.
2 Non League Day
Fisher are proud to be supporting this year’s Non League Day. What started as an attempt to encourage more people to attend non-league games has developed into a nationwide celebration of the beautiful game at this level. It provides a platform for clubs like ours to promote the importance of volunteer-led community football, while empowering fans to show support for their local non-league side. Can’t say fairer than that.
This year NLD is promoting Prostate Cancer UK a charity dedicated to preventing men dying from prostate cancer by focusing on improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and support. One in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime, with 31 men dying of the disease every single day.

3 Pay What You Like
Because it’s Non-League Day we decided to give something back to the fans by offering the opportunity to pay what you like at the turnstiles. Ticket prices are usually £7 (£4 concessions) but for one game only you can pay whatever you feel you can afford. Obviously if you can afford a little more there’s no reason you can’t put extra in the pot to support the club. Remember Fisher doesn’t have a rich backer or extravagant sponsors, we’re completely self-financed and run by the fans for the fans. All the money raised on matchday goes straight back into the club.
