Re: Most enjoyable game that we lost
1955 Amateur Cup Game now well documented. Richmond Road was packed out although official figures belie the fact when I say it was over 10000. The atmosphere was electric and the game was covered by most of the daily newspapers. In addition to this we had a visit from 'The Man in the White Suit' to conduct community singing, this was the same person who normally appeared at Wembely in front of 100,000 + fans. As a 14 year old that was when I became a confirmed K's fan.
1960 Amateur Cup final with about 5 minutes to go the cup was in K's grasp then it went wrong, first the equaliser by Laurie Topp thundered in off the crossbar 1-1 OK a draw was not a disaster but then horror of horrors the winner came, the Wembley cramp caught up with Bryan Davies and the rest of this story is history.
1964 Amateur Cup semi-final v Enfield . Lost 3-2 This was played at Craven Cottage and looking at the pitch I thought the Thames had flooded the pitch. An excellent game and played at a fast and competitive pace. at 2-2 and with everything to play for and time running out Enfield scored. Johnnyy McCormack almost scored the equaliser running up the centre of the field like a Jack Rabbit, John was brought down by 2 players and I thought it was a penalty but the man in muddy black didn't give it
