Saturday 09 November - Hendon 3 Walthamstow Avenue 0

Club captain, John Fisher, who only last month was told by a specialist that he would kick a ball until after Christmas, has made such rapid recovery from the terrible knee injury that required 27 stitches that he turned out for the reserves last Saturday and helped in the 3-0 home victory over Walthamstow Avenue.

Geoff Riddy switched to right-back and had a good game. John is making a last minute bid to be fully fit in an effort to win his centre-half spot for the Welsh Amateur International side which meets England at Bangor soon.

Newcomer Colin Bishop, who has played for Leyton Orient's Youth side, had a grand game for the reserves at left back. He had the job of marking Walthamstow's veteran international Jim Lewis.

Holder of 49 England caps, Jim took a penalty which was brilliantly saved by goalie Ron Whittaker. Our scorers were David Swain (2) and Les Davey.

Saturday 31 August - Dulwich Hamlet 2 Hendon 1

Our reserves took a tumble at Dulwich where they were beaten 2-1. It was surprising because we were leading with a goal by Geoff Riddy, who went up for a corner, and then in the second half Dulwich lost their goalkeeper. He went to hospital with a gashed leg.

Then Dulwich equalised and, despite another injury to one of their players, scored the winner late in the game.
