Yeah, remember that - didn't the ambulance have to come on to the pitch? Definitely the worst injury I have seen at Underhill, though when Lincoln thugs (the on-the-pitch ones) took out Johnny Marge' in 87/88 that was pretty nasty.hoofer2 wrote:Another memorable cup game for the wrong reason was an FA Cup qualifying round vs Leatherhead.
This was the game when poor Steve Humphries knee snapped right in front of where I was standing
near the old tea hut. His cries of pain were chilling as was the sound of the snap.
I believe we were leading 4-0 when Gary Abbott had to assume goalkeeping duties. We just held
on for a 4-3 win.
That Lincoln game has a few memories for me... first game of the season, they'd just come down and both their fans and players decided to say hello to non-league football by smashing the place up. We played them off the park, it was a sweet victory. Their keeper, the hirsute and plump Nigel Batch did a classic airkick to give Sir Nick a tap-in in a 4-2 win, Lincoln bundled in their 2 by exploiting the 'no-offsides-from-freekicks' experimental law that I'll always maintain cost that Barnet team promotion... Lincoln's ogres must have scored many a goal from just bundling the keeper and ball into the net that season
