He is playing for Enfield now and, as they were at home, I set Google maps on my phone,and headed off.

Come on, we’ve all done it! I remember an FA Trophy semi-final in the 80’s, where three coaches of Billericay Town fans were taken to Farnborough in Kent, not Hampshire. They arrived after half time, and they were furious!

Cockfosters is a great little club. The ground is pretty, and tightly surrounded by trees and hedges. They play fast flowing football and were too much for Hoddesdon, who made a good match of it. George Beattie, Ryan Wade and Carl Mullins scored for the home side and Harrison Rookard got one back for the visitors.
