Tuesday 31 May - Club Statement

"As many of you know, Rob Morris is a director of Kingsbury Town Management Company (the Company that owns the lease of Silver Jubilee Park) as well as a director of Hendon Football Club.

In his short time with the club, Rob has played a huge role in ensuring the club's long-term survival by enabling us to move to our new home at SJP in time for the start of next season.

With that task achieved, the time is now right for Rob to focus on his day job, namely the development of the many other partnerships that have been created by Kingsbury Town Management Company in order to ensure that it, like Hendon FC, will be around for many years to come.

Accordingly, Rob is standing down as a director of Hendon Football Club.

While we thank Rob for his massive contribution to the club, we are reliably informed that he, Joanna and Monty will be regular attendees next season and, hopefully, for many years to come."

Saturday's awards night saw the club bring the snowball draws for this year up to date, with a large sum of money paid out, including the largest prize pot to date of £495 for April.

The full list of winners can be found on the Snowball Page, but first prizes of around £300 were scooped by ball numbers 99, 191, 200 and 218, while around £150 was picked up by the holders of each of the numbers 1, 59, 66 and 84.

We thank everyone who's entered in the past and continues to do so and would encourage you to share the draw with your friends and family - the Snowball Draw in December is currently on course to be over £1200 with your odds of winning the jackpot being far better than the chances of winning around £100 in the National Lotto draw.
