Call off the search for a new striker. Alex Flisher is riding to Maidstone United’s rescue.
The 22-year-old played up front as a teenager and he needed no second invitation to partner Frannie Collin against Canvey Island last Saturday.
Two games later, Flisher has two goals and looks the part.
Flisher said: “Jay May was struggling with his calf and Jay (Saunders) said ‘how do you feel about playing up front?’ I was happy with that. I enjoy playing up front, it’s something a bit different.
“Jay just said I had to try to help Frannie out a bit more. The attacking side of it is all right and I don’t mind the pressing work either. That’s what we did on Saturday and part of the reason we did so well."
Flisher scored the goal of the game, hooking a spectacular volley over his head to leave the Canvey goalkeeper and defence bamboozled. He repeated the trick in midweek, scoring in Maidstone’s 2-0 win at AFC Hornchurch.
That result, combined with Margate’s 2-1 defeat to Dulwich, sent the Stones top of the Ryman League Premier Division.
Flisher said: “It was good in the changing room after. It just gave everyone an even bigger lift. There are a few good teams but hopefully the two of us can push on.”
