I cannot verify the accuracy of this account, as I wasn’t there and one name mentioned left me puzzled. Whatever, there have been very few games in Hendon’s history, competitive or friendly, that have produced 11 or more goals. It must have been quite an evening in difficult weather conditions.

It was a crazy night of football. Both teams far from full strength. Alfie Burden and Lee Allinson finished the match, Luca played all 90 minutes. Tyriq Hunt was on trial scored twice. Samrai Gebrai unlucky to score four times and end on the losing side. Hendon’s last 6–5 scoreline was in the Full Members Cup in 2000–01, on a frozen and probably unplayable pitch at Scraley Road, Heybridge Swifts. Swifts reserves beat our reserves, after extra time, despite the presence of Boncho Guentchev and Gary McCann. It was colder than the game at Tooting two years ago. A year later we won a League match at Billericay, but only 6–4, but we did score 9 times. We scored 11 with one reply, against Leyton on 15 December 2007.

The 11-1 victory at Leyton was certainly a high point and an Isthmian League record for the club, if I recall correctly. It was an astonishing afternoon; yes, Leyton were weakened by their circumstances at the time, but every goal was superbly struck giving their goalkeeper little chance of saving. The attendance didn’t reach 3 figures as I recall, so sadly there were not a great number of witnesses to the match, but it will live long in my memory.
