Biography

Having gained experience in a number of leagues across the United Kingdom and Europe striker Alex Fisher is looking to utilise that to make his stay in Lanarkshire a successful one.

The London born forward began his career with Oxford Utd having progressed through the ranks of the English side’s youth academy.

Alex made his senior debut as a late substitute in a 1-0 win for Oxford away to Blue Square Premier League opponents Farsley on 14 October ’07. His first senior goal came a few weeks later when he netted Oxford’s final goal in a 4-0 romp over Altrincham.

During his time with the U’s the striker spent also two successful spells on loan to Brackley Town and Oxford City but in the summer of 2009 Fisher moved to Spain and after a period at the Glenn Hoddle Academy joined Jerez Industrial.

His goalscoring record in Spain was impressive and caught the attention of Belgian Second Division side KVK Tienen. They would be the first of three Belgian sides Alex would serve the others being KRC Mechelen and KSK Heist.

Fisher was less than two months into his time with the latter when an opportunity to play in Italy arose and he moved to AC Monza Brianza.

The Englishman’s stay in Italy however was brief and at the close of the 13’14 campaign he returned to the UK to sign for Mansfield.

A single season in League Two with the Stags was followed by an impressive six months with Torquay in the National League which prompted John Hughes to take him to Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Just a few days into his Caley Jags career Alex suffered a season injury having played just three times for his new club.

By the time he had recovered Hughes had been replaced by former Motherwell favourite Richie Foran and the rookie gaffer endured a season of struggle in his new role. As for Alex he took some time to settle into Scottish football before breaking his duck in memorable fashion by netting a last minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Celtic.

Towards the end of the season Alex really came into his own scoring seven times in Inverness final nine games, including no fewer than four of them against Motherwell.

It wasn’t enough to prevent Caley succumbing to relegation but was enough to tempt Stephen Robinson to bring him to Fir Park, beating off competition from sides in both the Scottish top flight and in England to do so.

Alex made his Motherwell debut in the 5-1 win over Queen’s Park at Hampden Park in the Betfred League Cup setting up Chris Cadden to score Motherwell’s first goal of the season 2017’18 campaign.
