My Dad's Hendon...

Views: 11097

My Dad passed away a couple of years back but on his behalf I reckon I can have a go at some of the questions.....

What was your first game? The earliest programme in his collection is home to Wealdstone on Boxing Day 1951.
How did you find Hendon FC? I'm fairly sure he was taken there by his Dad.
Why do you support Hendon FC? Hendon was his local club and he was never a regular watcher of professional football.
Favourite Hendon game? Probably the Amateur Cup Final win against Kingstonian in 1960 or the 4-3 win v Arsenal at Highbury in 1964/65.
Favourite Hendon memory? Other than Cup Final wins etc....1) the humour on the terrace behind the goal at Claremont Road 2) drinking seven bottles of Newcastle Brown Ale in an hour after the 1-1 draw at St James' Park in 1974...."the Geordies were crying into their beer after the game but still wouldn't let me buy a round..." 3) playing cards with The Searchers in the waiting room at York station after he'd missed the last train back to London following the trip to Roker Park in 1966. They'd missed their connection back to Liverpool too, so it was a wait for the Milk Trains!
Favourite team to play? Wealdstone. Results against them set the tone for Christmas!
Favourite Hendon player of all time? Probably Dexter Adams or Laurie Topp.
