Plus ça change, plus la même chose (Or some things never change)
Almost 25 years ago – on 8 May 1993 – Peter Taylor was named Hendon manager with Terry Harris as his No 2. I’ve just seen today, on 6 May 2018, Peter Taylor was named Dag & Red manager with Terry Harris as his No 2.
Small correction and some more stats and facts
Just remembered that, in fact, Terry Harris joined the staff a little later in 1993. Peter’s first assistant was Alan Gemmill. Terry was Hendon manager for less that a month, taking over after Peter departed for Southend. He left on 30 December 1993, replaced – for 45 minutes – by Paul Brush (during which time the playing budget was slashed) and then, until the end of the season, Bob Dowie.
Bob played for Peter at Hendon, alongside Curtis Warmington, and, a few years later, was Director of Football at Crystal Palace FC when Peter Taylor became the Eagles’ manager in succession to Iain Dowie.
However, for all of their links in 2000s, Peter was at Hendon – and left – two seasons before Junior Lewis joined the Greens.
