Dean Harrison thinks small details are critical when running a football club and he believes it will help turn Fisher FC into a more consistent unit.
The new Fisher boss oversaw a fine 4-1 win over Crowborough Athletic last weekend where one of his recent changes was there for all to see.
Harrison has decided when Fisher are the ‘home’ team at Champion Hill they will sit in the right hand dugout, instead of the other dugout where both Fisher and Dulwich Hamlet outfits have sat in the past.
He explained the change to the News: “I am always on the lookout for little things, they do matter. I moved the dugout as I like to be in the ear of the linesman.
“It is just to talk to them and have communication with them more than anything. I think if the away team is in their ear they can get intimidated at this level, and in the three or four games before this weekend we have been unable to communicate with the official when anything happens like that.”
Whilst small changes have already happened Harrison said he is constantly on the hunt for new things he thinks could give his side an edge. Harrison added: “I am always looking for small things to affect players, it can be important psychophysically I feel.
“We have changed other things like my mum makes half-time teas, we have somebody who looks after kit and hangs it up before games. “We also have cards up in the changing room with positive messages. There are so many little things and I believe it can make a big difference.”
Another change on the pitch was that debutante striker Luke Haidarovic took over the skippers armband, despite it being his first appearance in for the Fish. The Fisher boss said: “He is experienced and he has played in good leagues in Wales and the US and I liked the way he carried himself in training, the way he is with the other players and he did well on and off the pitch on Saturday.”
