I am loving DB's Green and Gold feature and I am so happy David Hogwood is in it.

He was perhaps for me my first Hendon hero from the mid sixties onwards.

You wonder how such a fantastic play can ever be replaced but in the blink of an eye there was Gary Hand.

My mate worked with David at GPO (now days BT) after David moved to St Albans City. He told him they would "turn us over" before our home league game in 1972 and true to his word they beat us 2:0 thus ending our record breaking unbeateaten run and pretty much screwing up our chances of winning the league that year.

The following Saturday we stuffed them 4:0 in the London Senior Cup and of course won the Amateur Cup that year.

We had to wait another year before we won the league.
