Fisher FC regrets to announce that manager Allan Fenn has decided to resign from his position. The club is very grateful for his tireless efforts at the helm, and would like to wish him all the very best for the future. Leaving with Allan are player-goalkeeper coach Chris Clark and first team coach Jacques Edouard. The club would like to place on record its thanks for their contributions this season.
However, the club is delighted that current assistant manager Ajay Ashanike has accepted the position as the club’s new manager. Previously player-manager at Tower Hamlets in the Essex Senior League, Ajay joined the Fish in the summer as number two to Allan Fenn. He has helped put together a new squad from scratch this summer, with many of the current players being contacts of Ajay’s from his time in the Essex Senior League. The board and players alike were very keen that Ajay stay on at Fisher, and it is great news that he has agreed to do so. Coach James Clark will also remain in his current role.
Ajay’s time as Fisher FC manager will begin with Saturday’s trip to league leaders Chatham Town, and we hope as many of you as possible will be able to get along to cheer on the boys. Ajay had the following reaction to his appointment: “I’m delighted to be appointed as Fisher FC manager and can’t wait to get started. They don’t come tougher than an away trip to the top of the table, but the boys have been working hard in training and will be well prepared for Saturday. I’d like to thank Allan for having brought me to the club in the first place, and wish him all the very best.”
