FISHER HAVE announced a new investment initiative aimed at ensuring the club remains “democratic and supporter-owned”.

The Fisher FC 12th Man Fund is an overhaul of their membership scheme, and the club hope it will boost their revenue. Fisher were relegated to the Southern Counties East League First Division.

“We’re keen to remain democratic and supporters owned, continually safeguarding the future of the club we all love,” new membership secretary Joe Arif said.

“But for this to remain viable we must increase the revenue streams and see the profit and loss sheet back in the black. “We want to cheer on a competitive team led by [manager] Dean Harrison as we attempt to bounce back into the SCEFL Premier Division at the first time of asking.

“In order to do this a playing budget is paramount. Placing the club in a sea of debt is not an option, so we see a crowd-funding exercise as the best way forward. “If 20 people commit to £20 a week we would accumulate a £20,000 playing budget.

It would represent a massive step forward for Fisher.” For more details on how to get involved in the 12th Man Fund contact joe.arif@hotmail.com or on 07921149001.
