Full Contact client Alex Fisher has signed for Scottish Premier League club Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
Alex, 25, had recently left Torquay United by mutual consent after scoring 5 goals in 16 starts for the relegation threatened National League side. Following a short trial with the Scottish club who are currently in sixth place in the SPL, Alex has today put pen to paper on a contract until the end of the season.
Lee Payne, Head of Football at Full Contact, explained “We started representing Alex when he was playing out in Italy and wanted to return to the UK. Last season he started extremely well at Mansfield but was ultimately restricted to just 6 League starts due to an injury. This season he stepped down a division in order to play regularly and at Torquay – although the side were struggling – his work-rate, desire and willingness to be a team player stood out, often playing out of position. He still managed a reasonable goal return during that period and we knew that as the January window approached it was time for Alex to play at a higher level and – finally – look to prove here in the UK what he can deliver.
Dan Chapman, senior partner of Full Contact, added “Credit must go to Torquay who were very understanding of Alex’s situation, and as soon as we knew of the interest from Inverness they were prepared to let Alex move on, and credit to Alex too for being brave and then taking his opportunity. Inverness have been a pleasure to deal with, also. Alex has now got a fabulous chance to play games at a high level, in front of big, passionate crowds and hopefully demonstrate the ability that we have always believed in.”
We wish Alex and Inverness CT all the best for the remainder of the season.
