Advent Calendar - December 15th

10 months ago By Stephen King

Ten matches and 92 years before a defeat on this date but what a beating it was.

A run of eight wins and two draws on this date with a goal difference of plus 30, thanks in part to a 10-3 win in the Spartan League of 1951, came to a juddering halt in 1984 with a 6-0 home defeat to Kingsbury Town. Not surprisingly we finished bottom of the Isthmian League Division Two (North) that season though slightly more surprising was that Kingsbury, after inflicting our joint worst defeat of the season, didn't do much better, ending just four places above us.

2007's Division One (North) game at Waltham Abbey saw us almost make up for that defeat with a 5-0 win in a game that we dominated from start to finish with a beautiful display of possession football. Scott Neilson with two goals (one from the penalty spot), Joe Stevens, Steve Horsey and John Frendo were our scorers.

Where next?

Advent Calendar - December 16th Draws aplenty in the early years but 1969's abandoned cup game gives us the chance to advance in replay.
Advent Calendar - December 14th Defeat to Hertford Reserves in 1935.
