I was using legendary in the totally positive sense.

Sakala’s miss at Hampton was surpassed by Mick Kiely’s in the 7-0 loss to Kingstonian at Hampton and – most damagingly – Blaise O’Brien’s one at Margate when we were 2-0 up on the last day of the season and lost 4-2 to finish in a relegation position.

To my knowledge, Paul Parker (briefly at Heybridge) and Bontcho are the only two men to play in a football World Cup semi-final and then in the Isthmian League (Bobby Moore managed in the League for Oxford City but didn’t play). I can think of other players who appeared in a World Cup semi-final and in the Isthmian League, but it wasn’t football and the World Cup appearances came later.
