Julian Hazel, looking thrilled after receiving a reward from the Hoe’ supporters (Messi, Neymar & Ronaldo can only dream of such accolades). His 114 goals in 227 first team appearances speaks for itself and, as Richie pointed out in his piece, Jules was regarded as a Dragons legend by the SOBs. I can remember many great goals he scored and one particular outstanding performance away at Bedford Town when playing as a lone striker, they just couldn’t get the ball off him. The best tribute I can pay, is to say that the fact he wanted to play for Wivenhoe probably prevented him from playing higher up the non-league pyramid.
Top player, top geezer.

Scott Juniper (pictured below) played in midfield and was involved in the 1994-95 team managed by Steve Dowman. Back then he was a 17/18 year old, now in his mid 30’s he has maintained his love affair with sport and can now be found coaching out in California! Now not many ex-dragon players can say that!
Scott Juniper has been the women’s soccer head coach at UC Irvine since January 2006. Check out the link below to learn more.
The above photo taken during the 1987/88 Season, and the team pictured was the Dragons Sunday League side who competed in the Colchester & District Sunday League. In this Season they finished Division Five runners-up!
Do you know of any of the players or were you one of them?
