SCEFL First Division Fisher 9-1 Lydd Town

20167

THIRTY-THREE SECONDS of respite was all Fisher allowed Lydd Town last Saturday as they handed out a hammering to their rivals to record their biggest competitive victory since their resurrection in 2009.

Luke Haidarovic put the home side ahead inside a minute, before it was two on nine minutes as Toyeer Babtunde got the first of his three goals.

Fisher made it 3-0 in the 24th minute through Rob Brown, before Tim Sims gave his side brief hope as he pulled a goal back nine minutes before the break.

But Babtunde got two more in the second half and goals from Jamie Brown, Mathieu Ramsamy, Jack Bullock and a second from Rob Brown completed the rout. “My thoughts are, it’s been coming,” Fisher boss Dean Harrison told Kentish Football afterwards.

“We’ve had so many performances this year when we’ve created those chances and just not been clinical enough, so today’s been coming. “It was a really good start, really positive. I’ve said to the boys in there can we start hard and fast?

We did have that in mind today to get at them and get at their back-line and start quickly. “They’re good, they’re not a bad side, Lydd.

They were only a point behind us this morning. We played them down there, so we know what they’re about.

They’re a big, strong, physical side so we needed to contain them.” The result lifted Fisher three places in the SCEFL First Division table to fourth, with games in hand on all the sides above them. Harrison’s side face Corinthian Casuals in the second round of the London Senior Trophy at St Paul’s on Saturday. Kick-off is 3pm.
