The saddest day for all E's fans at the time was the Amateur Quarter Final at Highgate Utd. This was 1967 as well. For the 'younger' Enfield supporter, this game was where Tony Allden of Highgate was killed when he was struck by lightening. The game was abandoned with E's leading 2-0.
The replay was in front of 32,000 at Villa Park and was an emotional evening for all. The score 6-0 to Enfield was irrevalent.

I have the memory of Enfield V Sutton utd at southbury road when the hillsboro disaster was taking place, Everybody was stunned when the tannoy announcer was updating the casualties. The match finished 1-1 but it just did'nt seen to matter.

The oddest thing about that day was that the game was important, as Enfield weren't safe from relegation. When the announcements started, the game suddenly turned into a walking-pace friendly. Possibly the strangest day I ever had as an Enfield supporter.

I'm too young to remember the Highgate game, but I paid a visit to their ground a couple of years ago - a sort of pilgrimage if you like, though that sounds a bit pretentious. One of their bars is now called the Tony Allden Lounge, with a suitable plaque on the wall. The ground doesn't look like it's changed much though.
