- Saturday 6th – Fisher 4-1 K Sports
An absolutely blistering start to the month with an emphatic win against K Sports that has taken us up a couple of notches in the league to 10th. Despite being a wet and miserable afternoon at St Paul’s the lads sparkled with a robust performance that was both tight and controlled and a joy to watch. If we can continue that sort of football for the rest of the month we should be in a commanding position to challenge for the top of the table before the year is out.

- Wednesday 10th – Croydon v Fisher (7.45pm ko)
First of two visits to South Norwood this month to take on bottom of the table Croydon. This is a league fixture and given the Trams have yet to score a single point this season it shouldn’t be too much of a demand to ensure the three points. It’s just down the road so easy to get to for Fish fans to pop along.

- Saturday 13th – Fisher v Glebe – Ground Hopper Day, Non-League Day (3pm ko)
Big game for the Fish in more ways than one. It’s our first Groundhopper Day so we’re encouraging all groundhoppers who haven’t already visited St Paul’s to make it a date in your diary. The Salter Road stadium has only been open a couple of seasons and was built from scratch just up the road from the original Fisher Athletic ground. Our community engagement officer Emma has lots of things planned for the day so if you’re a groundhopper this saturday’s game is the perfect time to visit. It’s also Non-League Day – a brilliant initiative that encourages league fans to experience the beauty of non-league football. Check back on our facebook and twitter pages to find out about all the exciting things planned for the day@

- Wednesday 17th – Beckenham Town v Fisher (7.45pm ko)
This is the big test, the league leaders away. Beckenham have dominated the season so far and look strong and stable in both defence and attack. That said Corinthian took three points from a previously unbeaten Beckenham this weekend so they’re not infallible.This game will be a test of character for the Fish without a doubt, it’ll also be an opportunity to assert ourselves and show how far we’ve come already this season. This is be one game no self-respecting Fish fan would want to miss.
It’s an evening kick-off but travel is pretty straight forward, check details here: http://www.fisherfc.org/fixture_and_result/scefl-premier-division-12/
- Wednesday 24th – Croydon v Fisher (7.45pm ko)
Second visit to Croydon this time for the SCEFL Challenge Cup. Cup games have a habit of being unpredictable so nothing is guaranteed, but with the same level of support we get for away games this shouldn’t pose too much of a difficulty.

- Saturday 27th – Cray Valley v Fisher (3pm ko)
Last game of a pretty full October calendar and another game on the road – a proper south London derby which are always worth the admission price. Cray Valley have been playing consistently good football this season which sees them currently sitting third with an unbeaten home record. Like the Beckenham game it will have to be a Fisher side on top form physically but also psychologically. If we do well here then we move into November with nothing to fear in front of us. As always it’s the fans that make all the difference – make sure you keep your diary free for this one.
