FISHER ARE out of the 2018-19 FA Cup after losing in the extra preliminary round to Horsham YMCA at St Paul’s last Saturday.

After the game was scoreless at the break, Dean Harrison’s side scored a superb goal to go ahead, breaking the length of the pitch before left-back Jack Rogers crossed for Sam Pekun to fire home.

Fisher appeared to be on their way into the preliminary round, but were stunned when Tony Nwachukwu equalised with twelve minutes left and then Dean Bown finished from close range late on to pinch the win for the visitors.

Fisher are back in SCEFL Premier Division action this Saturday. The Rotherhithe outfit travel to Crowborough Athletic looking for their second win of the season. Kick-off is 3pm.
