919Keanu Williams celebrates his goal for Fisher on Saturday

Fisher picked up a much needed three points on Saturday as four second half goals blew away a visiting Crowborough side.

The weekend win gave the Black and White’s some breathing space between themselves and the bottom two in Southern Counties East Football League, and the sole relegation spot in the table.

Fisher were the better team in the first period but found themselves a goal down at half time when a defensive lapse during a rare Crowborough attack saw captain Jason Barton tuck home the first goal of the afternoon.

But rather than fold as some Fisher teams had done in the recent past the home side spanked in four unanswered second half goals to record an impressive win. Max Rothwell fired home the leveller on 53 minutes before the impressive Jordan Adekunle put the Fish ahead on the hour mark. Adekunle played an important part in the hosts’ third goal, firing in a dangerous cross which was tucked away by luckless Athletic defender Calum Ridley.

Soon after man of the match Alfie Roche helped seal the win when he found his way in to the box before setting up substitute, and debutante, Keanu Williams who tucked home Fisher’s fourth goal of the afternoon. Fisher boss Dean Harrison told the News: “I thought we were very good and good value for the win. We attacked with tempo and purpose and we defended well throughout the game.

“There were a couple of times in the first half where we were stretched and a ten to fifteen minute period in the second half where they were on top, as we changed formation, but we were 3-1 up by then.” He added: “We have been working on the mental side of the game. We have a good squad here and we keep telling the players that.

“Even at half-time we were positive and told the boys if they kept going things would change and they did.” On Tuesday night Fisher made the long trip to Deal Town, minus a few faces from the weekend win due to work commitments, but could not back up their weekend victory. Instead they fell to a 3-0 defeat against their fellow league struggler’s.
