I have some details of a testimonial for Bill Fisher that was played against Wimbledon on Monday 4th December 1978 at Claremont Road, finishing 1-1.

Hendon's team (as I have it) was Gary Steel, Micky Cooper, Gary Hand, Alan Roughan, Alan Campbell, Rod Haider, Ray O'Callaghan, John Steer, Roy Butler, Micky Garrini, George Brooks. Scorer was Brooks. Subs were Graeme Sewell and Steve Hudson - both apparantly used.

I don't have details of Wimbledon's line-up, but I think they intended to play as many first-teamers as possible.

For the older supporters who remember Ken Thorn, one-time Supporters Association treasurer, he used to record lineups and scorers for competitive matches in a notebook. His method was to mark those who appeared in a match, but not by shirt number (until midway through 1984-85), and not differentiating between starters and subs. I have his book for the period 1977-78 to 1990-91. In that time he only included 2 friendlies, of which this is one. The thirteen players above are the ones he had marked as appearing in the match; the choice of subs is what I consider most likely from those thirteen players.
