Terry Sage reflects… Knebworth’s Sunday side had four players from Knebworth’s Herts County League Saturday Premier Division: Dougie Overman, Terry Sage, Mick Thompson, and Mervyn Woodfield. That side, with several changes which strengthened the team, went on to win the Stevenage Challenge Cup which to do was very good as the standard of the Sunday league was very high as it included the Twin Foxes who were one of the best Sunday sides at National level. We also won the Stevenage Sunday League Division one title, and came third in the Premier behind Twin Foxes and Icknield, but by then we had been strengthened by the return from the Professional ranks of Delvin Stevens. After that for a couple of season the side declined and was relegated to division 1, but it did re-build and two years later was promoted back to the Premier Division, on promotion I decided that at 31 I could not face Premier football again and retired from Sunday football, and also County League. The main reason I retired from County League was I wanted to spend more time playing Cricket, my last few years was spent in playing North Herts which suited me I ended up in my mid-to-late Thirties playing in Division 5 at Woolmer Green.
