Advent Calendar - December 20th

4 weeks ago By Stephen King

Fate steps in to deny us victory over Hertford.

The last Saturday before Christmas 1969 found us at home to Hertford in the 3rd round of the Athenian League Cup. It finished 0-0 but Nat Miller was denied a goal when the referee blew for half time between the ball leaving Nat's boot and hitting the back of the net. I wouldn't expect that degree of timing exactitude nowadays.

The replay took place in late January and Ware went 1-0 and then 2-1 up in a match they had the better of. Late in the game Hertford had a corner that came over too high leaving a Hertford forward to vent his frustration by clearly reaching up to punch the ball into the net. Somehow only the referee and the relevant linesman failed to see this and a second equaliser was awarded.

A second replay took place in February and despite returning to Buryfield we had no advantage what so ever and lost 6-0. I'm still waiting for fate to return the favour it dealt Hertford in that Athenian Cup tie.

Where next?

Advent Calendar - December 21st It may be the shortest day of the year but the theme of this day is the long gap both before we played on it and again since we last did.
New dates for postponed games. Midweek clashes set for January.
