Our last home game, against Deal Town, saw us achieve another landmark in the history of Fisher FC – our biggest gate since moving back to St Paul’s five years ago. An impressive 298 fans came down to Salter Road to watch the Fish in action. Although we didn’t take the 3 points on the day there was a lot of new faces, some returning long absent Fish fans and a few old faces down from the Den – all watching a great game of football together. It was glorious sight to see St Paul’s filling up and it’s always good for the players to play in front of an appreciative crowd.
And with the increase in home attendance there has been an increase in fans travelling to away matches. A good run in the FA Cup and Vase competitions has certainly helped but there is always something special about going out on tour with the Fish. And with the upsurge in away support has been fan groups forming up and travelling to games. Along with the established Fisher Faithful and the Dockers End choir we now have the Blowlamps and the Fishwhackers which means we have plenty of vocal support and Fisher presense at away grounds.
To celebrate this and as a thank-you to our growing army of travelling fans we’ve put together some Fish On Tour merchandise. From sweatshirts, hoodies, t-shirts and tank-tops to bandanas and beanies. there’s something for everyone, male and female (and canine!) in a range of colours.
