I have been supporting HFC for more than 60 years - my first game would have been in around 1951 part of a packed crowd for the derby game versus Barnet which I believe ended 2-2.

I have many favourite games over so many years but top of the list must be the classic 1960 Amateur Cup Final against Kingstonian played before 60,000 spectators at the old Wembley Stadium. It was a closely fought game with Hendon just having the edge although traiing 0-1 for much of the match. In an unforgettable final three minutes, veteran Laurie Topp netted the equaliser before nippy winger Terry Howard weaved his magicto put the Greens ahead. There was still time enough for Kingstonian to hit the bar!

As to favourite player of all time, this just has to be Rod Haider - a superb talent with an exemplary record
