Fisher FC 4 – 0 Glebe
Words by SIMON THROSSELL (@throssfilms)
Goals from Rob Brown, Mathieu Ramsamy and Luke Haidarovic gave Fisher their fourth win on the trot in another high scoring game against fellow SCEFL Premier League side Glebe.
Fisher FC versus Glebe drew a fantastic crowd of 247 people to St Paul’s Stadium, as the game coincided with Non-League Day as well as Ground Hopper Appreciation Day.
The fans and visitors didn’t have to wait long for something to cheer about. A sweet Rob Brown header from a Richie Hamill free-kick put the Fish one nil up within the first five minutes of the match. The ball was expertly swung into the box and met Brown’s outstretched head before being knocked through a gap between the goalkeeper and the Glebe defenders into the back of the net.
Mathieu Ramsamy scored on the stroke of half time after a well-worked counter attack. A spell of four successive Glebe corners put a lot of pressure on the home side. But a lovely piece of team play, starting from Wheeler’s clean save and quick distribution out from the back, put Ramsamy through on goal. Despite the Glebe players charging the length of the pitch to get back and defend, the midfielder slid the ball pass the left arm of the keeper into the bottom right corner.
The half time stats read dominant and accurate from the Fish – six shots of which five were on target. Glebe, on the other hand, finished the match with the same number of shots they had accumulated in the first half. A total of three shots on target regarded by one person on Twitter as generous – “3 more than I counted. Not sure whether it was non-league day or non-show day. Disappointed!”
There was no doubt that the third Fisher goal went over the line – it was more of a question of who scored it! After consulting the John Green’s VAR system, Luke Haidarovic was awarded with the title of goalscorer number 3 – his looping header from an inswinging corner found its way in off the bar and over the line.
In the 75th minute, Rob Brown rounded off the match with a left footed strike. The striker capitalised on a poor save from the Glebe keeper to give Fisher their fourth win on the trot.
Another high scoring game to add to the previous 4-1 and 5-0 wins against K Sports and Croydon respectively. Saturday’s result puts Dean Harrison’s side in 3rd place in the SCEFL Premier League, ahead of Wednesday’s (17th October) game against Beckenham Town.
