Fisher Youth FC

About Us

Fisher Youth FC was founded in 2017, following Fisher FC’s return to our Bermondsey home.  We are first and foremost a community club.  Our overriding aim is to provide a fun and safe environment that encourages young players to develop to the best of their ability and offers them the opportunity for regular, competitive football.

We started with two teams at U7 and U8 and nothing makes us prouder than the fact that many of the boys who helped launch the club still wear Fisher’s famous black and white stripes each weekend. We now have teams competing across all age groups between U7 and U15 (with exception of U14) – our ultimate aim is to have teams competing in every age group up to U18 and to hopefully regularly produce young players capable of making the transition to the senior club.

We are an FA Standard Charter approved club.  The club’s coaching is led by former Fisher Athletic player Chris Hiscock, a UEFA A Licence qualified coach, and he is supported by a team of coaches responsible for each of the age group teams.  Our teams compete in the South East London & Kent Youth Football League (SELKENT), other than our Under 15s who compete in the Kent Youth League.  We train at both Fisher’s home ground, St Paul’s Sports Ground in Rotherhithe, and at the City of London Academy Southwark in Bermondsey.  For the 2022/23 season, our U7s and U8s will play their home matches at the Lions Centre in Bermondsey, our U15s home ground will be St Paul’s, and the balance of our teams will play their home fixtures at the London Marathon Playing Fields in Kidbrooke.

In addition, the club runs a Saturday morning football school at St Paul’s for 4 to 6-year olds to help them learn the basics of the game before stepping up to mini-football.
