16 October 2020

MK Dons have signed goalkeeper Andrew Fisher from Blackburn Rovers.

Fisher, who spent time on loan at Stadium MK last season, joins on a permanent deal and bolsters Russell Martin’s goalkeeping options alongside Lee Nicholls and Laurie Walker.

He told mkdons.com: "I’m really pleased to be back with MK Dons. I enjoyed my time here last season and I was gutted it was cut short.

“I loved working with Dean, Lee and Laurie and believe we can all get the best out of eachother.

“I’m excited about the project that Russ is putting together here and I can’t wait to continue my development as an MK Dons player."

The 22-year-old progressed through the Academy ranks at Blackburn Rovers, signing his first professional deal at Ewood Park in January 2016. He made senior debut for Rovers in August 2017, keeping a clean sheet in their EFL Trophy win over Stoke City.

The goalkeeper played twice more that campaign as well as spending time on loan at National League North side FC United of Manchester and Northampton Town, totalling 19 more senior appearances.

He joined MK Dons on loan in January and provided depth up until the curtailment of the 2020/21 campaign, and now returns to Stadium MK – this time on a permanent basis.

Goalkeeper coach Dean Thornton told mkdons.com: “We’re delighted to bring Andrew back to the Club. He was a massive part in us doing well in second half of last season so we’re pleased to have him here on a permanent basis.

“We believe he’s one of the best goalkeepers in the country at his age. He has his whole future ahead of him and with our style, he suits down to the ground.

“He will be a big addition to the goalkeeping department, as well to Russ’ team.”
