Last match a Champion Hill before the grand return to Bermondsey

History in the making. London gutsiest football club and the ultimate underdog survival story take on a new chapter in their colourful history as the bid farewell to the current home in East Dulwich (sharing a ground with the Dulwich Hamlet) and move back to their natural home in Bermondsey, for the start of next season.

Fisher are a football club on the move, and despite the setbacks look to be ending the season on a high.  Last weekend saw an impressive away victory to Cray Valley and if they can do the double over Canterbury today (they beat them 2-1 away first week of the year) could potentially finish a respectable 13th place.

It’s going to be an emotional afternoon, in every respect. If you like your football from the heart then Champion Hill is the place to be this saturday afternoon.

From the Fisher camp:

This weekend we wrap the current season up with a “home” game against Canterbury City, which will be our final game at Champion Hill before our return to SE16.

To celebrate, we are holding our Annual Community Day and have lots planned to make the day special. SE16 Residents and Millwall Season ticket holders (with proof of status) can enjoy the game for half the usual admission price, and as always Under 16s enter for free.

Before the game, Club officials will be on hand to chat about getting involved, the latest on the new ground, and Club Secretary Ian Murphy will have designs for next season’s away kit for supporters to view and give feedback on.

As part of the day we also welcome Cherry Garden School for their second visit of the season.

Half time entertainment will be a “Battle of the Secretaries” penalty shoot-out between Ian and Martyn from Canterbury.

Finally, after the game, we will be holding our End of Season awards presentation, which will lead in to our end of season party. The start time for the awards Ceremony will be at around 5.45. Food will be available for supporters during the evening so why not stick around and have a few drinks with the players as we bid our final farewell to the Hamlet.
