Just got home from the game, have to say game had 0-0 written all over it...........and then the inspired substitution of Adam Wallace for Leon Smith, and everything changed. Seven minutes or so after coming on he shakes off police defenders and nutmegs the goalkeeper to send the few Hendon fans home happy. Finally have to say congratulations to the Hendon players and backroom staff for all the hard work they put in week in week out, much appreciated by the supporters I know. Good luck on Monday can`t be at the game but will follow it on twitter.

Allowed plenty of time to get there despite no Met or Piccadilly line from my neck of the woods. On the District line to Wimbledon, got off at Putney for some lunch. By the time I got back on the tube with little time in hand, there was a power failure. Fortunately I was 1st in line at the mini cab office and was quoted 14 sovs to get to Wimbledon. Another failed tube punter begged me to share my cab as he was already late for a wedding at Wimbledon. Being public spirited, and the thought of sharing the fare I agreed. Surprise surprise, got to his wedding and no fxxxxxg change. Desperate to move on I let him off the bulk of his fare and got to the ground in ample time after the panic.
If you're still reading this, we'll done.
Thought we were outplayed in the 1st half (much like the home game) and began thinking a point would be a good result. Changed my viewing position in the hope of bringing good luck, and with half an hour left we finally took control.
Enter Adam Wallace, a brilliant 20 minute cameo, and a winner.
I'll not single out players because they're all heroes in my book but I have to mention 3. Kevin, Lee(o) and Jack, all absolutely superb (not to mention the Gaffer and his crew).
Results didn't go our way as we reel in the teams above us, but we're still hanging in there.
On a sad note, it turns out I'd met Ted Wood without knowing his name, had some nice conversations with him.
RIP Ted, let me dedicate today's win to you.
