Advent Calendar - December 1st

1 year ago By Stephen King

The count down to Christmas has started. On each day of advent we will highlight big scores and big events on that day in the club's past.

Today we start with our Spartan League Division One game from December 1st 1951 - Ware 6 Amersham Town 2.

Our scorers in that game were Cyril Long 3, Mo Hibbert, Alf Cliss and Ron Wilkinson (penalty). Mo Hibbert's goal was his 75th for the club, still a long way to go to his club record total of 229 in a career that ended in 1962 albeit that 228 of his goals had come by the end of 1958/9.

In what was a promotion year for us Amersham were on the receiving end of one of our four six-goal hauls that season. There would be some consolation for them in that it was some way short of Ware's best performance. We scored ten and nine goals in two other games plus eight twice and seven goals three times.
