In May 2021, the club said the following after he was released.

"Alex Fisher’s time at the Grecians will surely be remembered for the stunning late equaliser at Southend, which is in contention for our goal of the season, and his finish against Grimsby Town just two weeks ago. Leaving with 46 showings in red and white, Fisher has had opportunities limited this season, but stayed at the club determined to fight for a place in Taylor’s squad.

“At the start of the season we made it clear to Alex that he was behind the likes of Ben Seymour, so he fell down the pecking order. He contributed at times but those moments weren’t enough and didn’t quite get that consistency in his game. He can finish on his day and he’s the kind of player you’d want the ball to drop to in the box, but sadly that wasn’t quite enough for us over the two year period.”

In August 2021, Alex signed for Newport County on a one year contract.
