Re: Rod Haider testimonial
For anybody that's interested, I have managed to track down some info with regards Rod's benefit match which took place on Sat 14 May 1978. I'm led to believe he was due a full blown testimonial versus either Arsenal or QPR the following season, which I presume may not have taken place due to the fact he was installed as caretaker boss at around this time. The 'Whites' v 'Greens' game was won 2-1 by the team in white, which was overseen by Sports Editor Fred Harris. Whites:- Arthur Paisley, George Rocknean, Alan Phillips (1og), Mick Cannon, Dave Hogwood, Rod Haider, Keith Jameson, Jimmy Quail, Jimmy Williamson (2), Keiron Somers, Les Brown. Greens:- John Swannell, Roy Sleap, John Ashworth, Robby Evison, Bill Fisher (Ron Patterson), Mick Cooper, Derek Baker, John Baker, Tony Bass, John Connell, Bob Nash. Sub Les Brow (Welwyn Garden City).
A subsequent game on the same day took place, a Challenge Match. Hendon XI v Hendon District XI. Hendon won 3-1 (Haider, Middleton & Hall) Tobin pen for the District. Dave Beasant played for the District side.
Footnote;- Tried to find, to no avail details of Bill Fisher's game v Wealdstone in Dec 78/79 following his passing - not processed my own archieves beyond the 1950's I did find a friendly was played by Hendon on Tues 19th Dec that season, no venue specified, lost 0-3 against Barton Rovers. I may have some info due in with regards to the Dave Root game in the subsequent days - if successful will post.
