There was a story behind the goal. It came after John Richardson and the Dover centre-half went for a ball in the centre-circle. As the ball went on towards the Dover goal, the two players landed on the ground.

The referee and his assistant immediately looked at the two players to see if either stayed down or got up holding their heads and thus did not see Paul Kelly push the other Dover centre-half out of the way.

It was only a for a second or two, but neither of the officials were actually watching the ball and the play as their concern was for the two in the centre circle.

Following Kelly’s goal, my memory if of him running towards the Hendon left attacking corner flag with almost every Hendon player following him to celebrate. Half of the Dover team sprinted towards their left touchline to complain to the assistant referee and the other half chased the referee towards the centre circle.

I can’t remember Wagenaar joining he celebrations, but I do remember almost all of the pitch without players and three groups many yards apart from each other.

Oh happy days.
