We take our look through the Legend's shortlist to look at those that have not only supplied the ammunition from out wide, but in many cases chipped in with plenty of goals themselves.

We include the club's record goalscorer (including goals scored during World War 2 friendly competitions), one who went on to star in the NASL in the late 1970s as well as a very fondly remembered player, sadly no longer with us.

Roy Stroud: 428 appearances, 212 goals (1940 - 1953)

Club record goalscorer, including wartime competitions. Won the Athenian League in 1953 and four consecutive Middlesex Charity Cups in the late 1940s before turning professional with West Ham United. Won 9 England Amateur Cups, scoring 4 goals.

Laurie Churchill: 86 appearances, 55 goals (1962 – 1966)

Won the 1964 London Senior Cup and led the scoring charts in 1965/6 with 38 goals as the club reached the finals of the FA Amateur Cup and Middlesex Senior Cup.

Danny Lakey: 125 appearances, 55 goals (1964 – 1967)

One of four players to score 30 goals or more in the 1964/5 treble-winning campaign where he won the FA Amateur Cup, Isthmian League and Middlesex Senior Cup

Peter Anderson: 125 appearances, 58 goals (1968 - 1971)

Won the 1969 London Senior Cup before going moving to Luton Town in 1970. Went on to play for Royal Antwerp and Tampa Bay Rowdies in the NASL, where he played alongside Rodney Marsh.

Dermot Drummy: 348 appearances, 62 goals (1980 – 1984 & 1986 – 1989)

Was part of the 1988 side that won the Middlesex Charity Cup at Wembley Stadium, creating the first goal and scoring the second. Scored twice in the 1987 Isthmian League Cup final, sadly in vain, also appeared in the 1984 Middlesex Senior Cup final and the final of the 1987 GMAC Cup.

Josh Walker: 42 appearances, 17 goals (2017 -2018)

Won the Middlesex Senior Cup in 2018 and scored a memorable brace against eventual league champions Billericay Town in a 4-1 win. Part of the thrilling front line that reached the 2017/8 Isthmian League play-off final before moving onto Barnet.
