Action from Hendon v Walthamstow Avenue in ‘Monthly Soccer’, September 1969

This page of pictures is taken from Volume 1 Issue 1 of ‘Monthly Soccer’ Magazine, September 1969.

Included in the photos are Avenue players John Mann and Geoff Parsons, and Hendon’s John Baker and Paul Collett.

If anyone knows the competition/ date/ result/ scorers please drop me a line.  Since the caption mentions Hendon’s 5th goal, presumably it’s that season’s Isthmian League game, in which Hendon ran out easy 7-0 winners.

The  ground pictured is Hendon’s recently defunct Claremont Road.

    You’re correct in assuming that it was the 7-0 Isthmian League win. The match was played on 16th August 1969.

    The Hendon scorers were John Baker 2, Paul Collett 3, Bobby Wilson 2. There was a nice symmetry to the scoring until Paul Collett broke it with the seventh – the first three goals were scored by Baker, Collett, and Wilson, and that sequence was repeated for the next three.

    I have the Hendon team if you’re interested, but I’m sorry that I don’t have the Walthamstow Avenue side.
