Fisher Athletic - official name in 2007-08 & 2008-09 or Reply Privately

Can anyone please confirm the correct name for Fisher Athletic in 2007-08 & 2008-09?
I've noticed in my Braintree Town records that I have them as Fisher Athletic (London) in 2006-07, but then for their final two seasons as just Fisher Athletic. I don't recall the addition of (London) being for one season only, and am usually very particular to ensure names are accurate. I'm tempted to believe that this is a mistake on my part and that those last two seasons were also played as Fisher Athletic (London) but I can't find anything to back this up.
The Fisher wiki page does not mention the name change. The programmes for those seasons just say Fisher Athletic in the title, but have (London) included in the badge.
Which is correct?

I'm not sure if it's authoritative but FCHD has them as Fisher Athletic London from 1996-2009: http://www.fchd.info/FISHERAL.HTM

That's definitely wrong! They added the (London) at the start of 2006-07 to let people know where they were from. The question is, was that for one season only? Pretty sure it wasn't but there doesn't seem to be any consistency in where the name has been used over those last two seasons.
Thanks for looking!

My records for Tonbridge Angels also have Fisher 93 renaming themselves as Fisher Athletic London from 1996.

A quick trawl through some programmes for sale on eBay verifies this:
