Gate Catch A Flish!
Margate Football Club is delighted to announce Alex Flisher has agreed new terms to stay at Hartsdown Park for the 2018/19 season.
Flisher’s first-season for the club was cut short by an ACL injury obtained in the dying moments of The Gate’s final pre-season fixture away at Ramsgate last August.
Since, Flisher has undergone surgery and a lengthy rehabilitation process which means the former Maidstone man could well be involved with the pre-season fixture schedule.
Joint Manager Mike Sandmann was delighted with a good week’s work wrapped up with Flisher's signature for the upcoming campaign.
“It’s been a really positive week. Players are keen to be involved with what we’re continuing to build here and it’s great that Flish is one of those and will be with us this season. After his injury last year, it’s like having a new signing and it will be great to have him back out on the pitch.”
“Fans saw glimpses of Flish's ability and creativity and he has been working tirelessly with his rehab to make brilliant progress from a serious injury. He’s positive and we’re positive about that and will continue to monitor and support him, so hopefully it’s sooner rather than later that we get him back in a Blues shirt.”
Flisher himself, is counting down the days to complete his recovery and be part of a promotion push with his team-mates.
“I'm looking forward to the season ahead, getting fit and helping the boys aim for promotion. With the players we have already signed, we've got a great chance.”
