|FISH GO ON SIGNING SPREE
Fisher Athletic's preparations for the new Blue Square South season went into overdrive with
the signings of Karl Beckford, Andy Martin and Andy Sambrook.
Sambrook, a real coup for manager Wayne Burnett, turned down an offer from Blue Square
Premier outfit Grays Athletic to sign for the Fish.
The right back is seen as a direct replacement for Simon Jackson, who has joined Blue
Square South rivals Basingstoke Town this summer.
Sambrook made 86 appearances for Grays during a three year spell with the Essex club and
the 29 year old previously played 69 League games for Rushdon & Diamonds. The vastly-
experienced defender will add extra steel to an already strong Fisher defence.
Martin, a 28-year-old forward, joins Fisher after impressing on trial.
The former Wales under-21 international began his career with Crystal Palace, making 22
appearances. The forward also has Football league experience having played for Hereford
United and lists AFC Wimbledon, Tonbridge Angels and Sutton United amongst his former
Beck ford (pictured), a 23-year-old holding midfielder, is seen as a direct replacement for
recently departed Kieran Murtagh. The player lists Charlton Athletic, Aldershot Town, Lewes,
Bromley and AFC Wimbledon as his former clubs.
Further signings are expected this weekend but the club has also been boosted with
confirmation that so far nine players from last year`s side have been retained for another
campaign with the Fish.
The players are keepers Simon Overland and Chris Lewington, captain Scott Gooding as
well as defenders Gavin Dayes, Lewis Tozer and Mark Wright.
Midfielders Luke Hickie, Shaun Batt and Kenny Beaney also remain at the club, although
Beaney is out for another month with a fractured Metatarsal.
