Fisher pens new deal

Goalkeeper commits future to MK Dons...

23 January 2021

Andrew Fisher has committed his long-term future to MK Dons by penning a new deal with the Football Club.

Fisher, 22, arrived at Stadium MK on a permanent deal from Blackburn Rovers this summer, after enjoying a loan spell with the Dons during the second half of the 2019/20 season.

Since making his debut away at Blackpool in October, Fisher has established himself as a regular in the starting line-up, keeping four clean sheets and enjoying some standout performances – most notably away at Sunderland and as well as against Fleetwood Town earlier this week at Stadium MK.

“I’m delighted to sign this new contract,” Fisher told iFollow MK Dons after putting pen to paper. “I’m jumped at the gun when it was brought up.

“I came here to kick-start my career and I couldn’t ask for a better coaching staff and team of players to do that with.

“The way we play suits me perfectly. I like the pressure and responsibility that is put on me in this team and I feel like it brings the best out of me.”

Fisher 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. He returned to Ewood Park briefly before moving to Stadium MK, this time on a permanent basis, in October.

Goalkeeper Coach Dean Thornton said: “Fish is a top, top goalkeeper for this level and I think he certainly has room to grow even further.

“He took a big pay cut to come here from Blackburn Rovers and be a part of our team. He’s rewarded us with his performances and now it was our turn to reward him.

“He’s been fantastic within the goalkeeper union as well as for the whole team. His performances this season have shown us what he’s all about, particularly against Fleetwood Town, where he kept us in the game.

“He is here for the long haul and will be key to us moving forward and getting to where we want to get to as a Football Club.”
