Actually, missing from that little list above was was the League Cup Semi final against Margate.

Although a 'weakened' side I would imagine their XI that evening was still being paid three or four times what ours was - the referee disallowed a perfectly good Braithwaite goal in the second half and seemed to be giving everything their way.

Then, midway through the second half, Peter Dean dived to win a free kick and things seemed to turn. Braithwaite powered home another header and we had a cup final to look forward to.

Not only a cup final, but a cup final in a competition we've had next to no success in during my 20 years of watching Hendon. And what a fantastic evening that turned out to be.
