Mike, of Bloxwich, said: “They all call me Ninja.

“Because they say I’m gone in the blink of an eye, just like that.

“One minute you think you’ve collared me and the next minute I’m gone and the ball is in the back of the net.

“If you ask anyone if they play with Mike Fisher, they won’t have a clue who you’re on about – but if you say ‘do you play with Ninja’ they will know who you mean.

“I still love football and I’ll keep going for as long as I can – or at least while I’m still scoring on a regular basis.

“That feeling of scoring goals never gets old – even if I am.

“I’ve lost count of how many I’ve scored but I get four of five a game usually and have been playing walking football three times a week regularly for eight years.

“A few times I have scored ten in a match.”

“That feeling of scoring never gets old.”

The Luton Town fan’s goals came just days before Man City’s Erling Haaland hit five against, er, Luton.
