Wednesday 10 February - Gerry Harrison

The club was saddened to hear of the death of long-time supporter Gerry Harrison, who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Monday evening.

Gerry followed Hendon for over 50 years and was a regular at Claremont Road, Vale Farm and, more recently, Earlsmead. A passionate fan who said what he thought, he supporterd the club in his own unique style but all he ever really wanted was for Hendon to win.

Gerry's fondest Hendon memories went all the way back to the 'Glory Years' of the mid-70s and, while he never stopped attending matches, his thoughts would often turn to 'Newcastle away' and all those other trips he made when he was a young man.

The club would like to pass on its condolences to Gerry's son, Roger, and to the rest of the family.

Tuesday 09 February - Hendon reach semi-finals

Hendon reached the semi-finals of the London Senior Cup with an unconvincing 2-1 win against Croydon at Silver Jubilee Park.

The Greens found their opponents tough to breakdown, and were reliant on goals at the end of each half to secure progression to the last four and a trip to Redbridge.

Croydon took the lead in the 42nd minute through Tristan Toney before Ben Pattie equalised just before half-time.

The second half saw chances at a premium at either end, and the deadlock was broken as the game moved into stoppage time thanks to Carl McCluskey's header.

Monday 08 February - Dave Clarke

The club was saddened to hear of the death of long-time supporter Dave Clarke who passed away early on Friday evening after a short illness.

Dave, who was married to Geraldine for 38 years, had supported the club since the early 70's. He built the old tea hut at Claremont Road, rebuilt the stand wall and laid the foundations for the club shop.

Dave, who sold match programmes for many years, was always on call to lend a hand when asked and was a deserving winner of the Supporter of the Year.

The club will be observing a minute's silence in memory of Dave at Saturday's match against Hampton. In the meantime, we would like to pass on our condolences to Geraldine, to Sandra and Tony Wood, Janet and John Neville and to all of Dave's nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews."

Monday 08 February - Gary furious after weekend defeat

A furious Gary McCann did not hold back when he considered the performance at Imber Court on Saturday.

"My evaluation was that in no area of the pitch were we satisfactory," he said.

"Our central defenders were torn apart by a player who struggled to get into our team before leaving earlier this season, and we knew that he would be up for it.

"We didn't win any midfield duels or battles and the offensive players didn't affect the game, but it must be said that the service to them was unsatisfactory.

"We can all dress it up and say one competitive game in five weeks was a factor, but that doesn't work. It was embarrassingly poor.

"It was a performance that I didn't see coming and that infuriated me more. Momentum and confidence is everything in football and we now have to recreate it.

"Tomorrow's game at SJP has now taken added importance. We had been looking to get minutes into some players, but now the team selection will be with Saturday in mind."

Saturday 06 February - Greens beaten by Smith hat-trick

A hat-trick by former Hendon striker Leon Smith saw the Greens beaten 3-0 at Metropolitan Police this afternoon.

The goals came in the 12th, 40th and 76th minutes, as Smith showed his former club that he hasn't lost his goalscoring touch since moving on a few weeks ago.

Friday 05 February - An Evening With Tony Currie

Hendon Football Club are pleased to announce that they will be holding an evening with Tony Currie on Friday 26th February at Silver Jubilee Park. Doors will open at 7pm.

Local to Claremont Road growing up, Tony went on to enjoy a distinguished career with Sheffield United, Leeds United, QPR and Watford, winning full England honours along the way before a short spell with the Greens in the early 80s. Of course, Tony's brother Paul was a popular figure at Hendon and his nephew, Darren, also enjoyed a productive spell with the club a few years ago.

In what promises to be an interesting and insightful evening, Tony will share stories from his career and answer questions from those in attendance.

Tickets for the evening are £10 and will be on sale at Tuesday evening's game with Croydon, and at all games thereafter, and should be available on the day as well.

Refreshments, including food, will be available from the bar throughout the evening.

Whether a supporter of Sheffield United, Leeds United, QPR, Watford, Hendon or football from a by-gone era, we look forward to welcoming you all to SJP.

Wednesday 20 January - Silver Jubilee Park works update 7

We are making excellent progress and still on schedule to achieve the 31st March deadline for ensuring Silver Jubilee Park attains the required ground grading.

The spectator rail has been finished and the gates installed around the pitch. The hand rail has made a significant difference to the appearance of the ground.

The disabled stand base and the turnstile base will be complete on Thursday with new entrance gates installed. The old turnstile hut will be demolished on Monday and the new hand rail around the entrance will be complete.

The container that is currently in the car park at Earlsmead will be moved to SJP on Tuesday and be positioned near the new entrance gates. This will be partially converted to accommodate a club shop, which will then be in prime position for maximum customer flow.

The toilets are being fitted with the sanitary ware and will be completed in the next two weeks.

The Officials rooms have been boarded, plastered and now decorated. One will be functional with shower and toilet for Edgware's home game this Saturday. The home changing room is going to be of good size which will please Gary and the first team. Walls have been knocked down and the old bath demolished. Unfortunately the roof is full of holes and requires immediate repair which wasn't budgeted for. Also the central heating pipe was cut which hasn't helped during this cold spell. This resulted in a burst pipe in one of the officials rooms that had just been decorated. Two walls that were going to be removed no longer need to be and so we have been able to make up the time lost on burst pipes.

Please come along to the London Senior Cup tie against Croydon on Tuesday 9th February if you are able as it will give you a chance to see all the changes that have taken place over the past couple of months.

Saturday 09 January - Silver Jubilee Park works update 6

The weather has been kind to us again this week and has enabled the works to remain largely on schedule.

The new spectator rails were delivered on Monday and have been installed around half the pitch already. The first team saw the rail on Monday and were delighted with the look and agreed the ground was beginning to look better. The rail will be complete in the next few days weather permitting.

The outside toilets have been boarded and plastered and are now ready to be fitted by our first team plumbing expert Dean Cracknell and his company. The referees room has also been plastered and shower area tiled.

The changing rooms are next and we are devising a plan so matches can still be played whilst the refurbishment is taking place.

It was hoped that the dry changing room would be started this weekend, but the team are not able to get on site for another couple of weeks. This is our first setback but won't affect the completion date or the ground grading inspection.

We will need a working party in about a months time on a Sunday (date to be announced) to help with the clearing up of the site. This will include clearing some debris, removing moss and weeds from terracing, small painting jobs and erecting health and safety signs. Anyone interested in helping should contact Rob Morris via the club email address - admin@hendonfc.net
