Heinrich Fischer (soccer player)
Heinrich Fischer was a German football player who was active as a striker for the Duisburg game club at the beginning of the 20th century and became German runner-up with the latter in 1913.
Heinrich Fischer attended the humanistic grammar school in Duisburg around 1902, as did his brother Walter Fischer . The brothers also played football at the Grunewald. A football team was formed there in the 1890s, from which the Duisburg game club emerged in 1900. From 1903 Heinrich Fischer belonged to his first team, which at that time already appeared nationwide and in 1904 was the first West German champion. Subsequently, the Duisburg-based team reached the semi-finals of the national championship round, which was only introduced last year, as the first team from the west, and met VfB Leipzig there . At the meeting on May 12, 1904, the striker ran for the club and took the lead twice with his team, but VfB was able to force extra time and score the winning goal in the 132nd minute.
Fischer and his club won the West German championship a total of eight times; accordingly, the Duisburgers were again and again entitled to participate in the final round of the German championship. He was also able to book a total of eight appointments in a West German selection, but unlike his brother Walter, he never played for the German national team. The latter was promoted to the Duisburg team a few years after him and has since played at his side. In 1913 the brother couple participated in the greatest success in the club's history. A surprising 2-1 win against FC Stuttgarter Cickers made it into the semi-finals of the German championship. There the Duisburg met the reigning champion Holstein Kiel and, thanks to a goal by Heinrich Fischer, were again able to prevail 2-1. Then the final between the Duisburg game club and VfB Leipzig was played on May 11, 1913 in Munich - Sendling . In the ninth minute of the game, the Duisburg team fell behind with an unauthorized hand penalty, which increased to 0: 3 by the 60th minute. Heinrich Fischer scored the only goal for his team in the 75th minute, but consequently had to be content with the runner-up.
The First World War , which lasted from 1914 to 1918 , largely halted gaming operations, some of which continued until 1919. In the 1919/20 season , Heinrich Fischer, now over 30, continued to be part of the team, as did his brother and long-time teammates Klinkers, Ludewig and Quatram. With this he was again West German champion in 1921. On May 29, 1921 he played his last encounter in the German championship finals when he lost 2-1 after extra time with the Duisburger Spielverein in the semi-finals Vorwärts 90 Berlin . Shortly afterwards he ended his playing career.
In the 1912/13 season he won the competition for the Crown Prince Cup with the selection team of the West German Game Association . In the final on June 8, 1913 in Berlin in a 5-3 success against the team of the Brandenburg Ball Game Association , Heinrich Fischer distinguished himself as a three-time goal scorer. Heinz Ludewig acted as a middle runner, Josef Schümmelfelder as the left wing runner and brother Walter stormed the left wing.
