My Hendon by John Phillips
How long have you been supporting Hendon? Far too long.
What was your first game? Away to Oxford City in mid 1960's.
How did you find Hendon FC? I was mad keen on football, my Dad was a rugby fan but an uncle went to all the Hendon games and started taking me.
Why do you support Hendon Fc? Very friendly club. Bad habit.
Favourite game: 18/3/72 Wycombe Wanderers FA Amateur Cup semi final at Brentford, two best teams in the country, great game that could have gone either way, for years afterwards when you met a Wycombe fan they always wanted to talk about what a game that was.
So many memories - you choose.
25/3/67 Amateur Cup semi final first replay against Skelmersdale - Mickey Cooper's last gasp equaliser. We had been outplayed for most of the game but were only 2-1 down and pressing for the equaliser and from a packed penalty area the ball broke to Mickey. He never could keep his shots less than 10 feet over the bar, but for the only time in his career he hit a daisy cutter that somehow went through a sea of legs into the net.
22/4/72 Winning the Amateur Cup.
December 1973 a service station car park on the M4. We were on one of ten supporters coaches coming back from beating Merthyr Tydfil in the FA Cup when the draw for the 3rd round was made on the radio and we were drawn away to Newcastle United. The noise on the coach !! Then we stopped at services on the M4 and another coach of supporters arrived and the celebrations took off again in the car park, just as we were calming down another coach came in and kept the euphoria going and so it went on as each coach came in. Winter night, no alcohol, no music, no flashing lights but still a great party.
Favourite team to play: Good footballing teams or friendly grounds.
Favourite player - you do not need to ask. Rod Haider.
