We are pleased to be able to confirm Lee Allinson's latest signing this afternoon with Jonathan North having signed a contract that runs until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Friday 14 February - Look ahead to Hayes & Yeading

Hendon aim to make it 7 wins in a row as they host Hayes & Yeading at Silver Jubilee Park tomorrow afternoon. Both teams are flying high in the form table with Hayes having won 5 and lost 1 of their last 6 whilst Hendon have won six in a row for the first time in almost five years.

Hendon's last fixture saw a comfortable win over bottom of the table Dorchester with goals from Tommy Brewer, Joe White and Simeon Olarerin sealing the 3 points for the Greens. Meanwhile, Hayes made the trip to Yate Town where a brace from ex-Green Francis Amartey saw them return down the M4 with the 3 points.

Hendon and Hayes have already gone to battle on 3 different occasions this season. The first was the classic FA cup tie in October, where the hosts Hayes advanced into the next round with a 5-4 victory over the Greens. Hendon were 4-1 down at one point but rallied to draw level at 4-4 before a late penalty saw the hosts progress. Hayes also won the next meeting in the league, as they hosted the Greens again and won 3-2. Hendon finally got a win in the third fixture between the two clubs at home in the League Cup after a penalty shootout win.

Both clubs will be aiming to keep their fine form going as we meet for the 4th time this campaign.

Friday 14 February - Jatin's going Green!

Supporters attending tomorrow's game against Hayes & Yeading United may well be in for a big surprise.

Jatin Guntupalli challenged Hendon supporters via Twitter to raise £500 for next season's 12th Man Fund following last weekend's victory over Dorcheter Town, promising to dye his hair green for tomorrow's match if the target was reached.

Following a number of extremely generous donations, the target was exceeded yesterday afternoon and Jatin, good to his word, has spent this morning scouring Brentford's finest chemists for green hair dye.

On behalf of the club, we'd like to thank everyone that generously donated towards the 12th Man Fund and, most of all, to Jatin for being such an amazing sport. If anyone would still like to contribute tomorrow, please see Jatin or Simon Lawrence at the game.

Saturday 08 February - Six in a row!

Hendon shook off a determined Dorchester Town side to record a sixth consecutive league win in Dorset this afternoon and move up a place to twelfth in the table.

After riding their luck in the opening 20 minutes and being indebted to Rihards Matrevics for an outstanding triple save to keep the Magpies out, the Greens scored early in the second half through skipper Tommy Brewer to break the hosts' resistance.

Joe White added a 2nd two minutes from time to seal the points and Simeon Olalerin slid home Luca Allinson's cross in the final minute of stoppage time to add some gloss to the scoreline.

Friday 07 February - Dorchester Preview

Hendon continue to climb the table with a string of impressive league performances, so much so that it saw the club earn January club of the month after taking 12 points from a possible 15, scoring 12 goals and conceding just 3.

They extended that brilliant January into the beginning of February after beating Yate Town 2-1 at home last weekend. Despite the win, Lee Allinson was not happy with the performance stating, “it was our worst performance of the five”. Despite this, Hendon find themselves in perfect form heading into this game by sitting in 13th, 7 points above the bottom 3

On the other hand, our opponents Dorchester, are struggling for form, having not won in the league since October. With only 3 wins all season, it’s been a season of misery so far for the club as they look all but certain to face the drop, currently rock bottom of the league, 11 points from safety.

Our first encounter this season ended with a rare Dorchester win, as Jack Hoey sunk the Greens with a hat-trick. During the game, Hendon failed to control a half time lead as they were overrun by the dominant Dorchester side after the break.

Hendon will have a new addition in the squad in the form of Tyrique Clarke. The 18-year-old midfielder joins us from Met Police. However, the squad will be without striker Kingsley Eshun, who is expected to sign for Hartley Wintney. Dorchester have also added to their squad with the addition of French-born striker Emile Kpama Ngoy.

Whilst the form guide would suggest the three points could come back with the Greens, Dorchester will be looking to test the Greens in an attempt to kick-start their great escape from the bottom of the table.

Thursday 06 February - One in and one departs

Lee Allinson has made a couple of tweaks to his squad with the addition of one new face the the release of an existing squad member.

Joing the club is 18 year old midfielder Tyrique Clarke who started the season with Yeovil Town before a spell with Met Police from whom he joins us.

Heading out is striker Kingsley Eshun who is expected to sign for Hartley Wintney. Kingsley joined the club in November and made 7 appearances for the club, scoring twice including the opening goal in our home game against Hartley.

We'd like to welcome Tyrique to Silver Jubilee Park and wish him well for his stay with us, whilst we'd also like to thank Kingsley for his efforts with us over the past three months and wish him well for the future.

Last night's friendly with Hampton & Richmond Borough ended in a 1-1 draw.

Lee Allinson took the opportunity to offer minutes to a number of players needing a run-out with a sprinkling of regulars and some talented youngsters augmenting the line-up.

Liam Brooks opened the scoring midway through the second half following up his saved penalty before Hampton equalised in the closing stages.

Joe White opened the scoring just beyond the half hour mark converting Liam Brooks' pass.

Friday 31 January - 12th Man Fund 2020/21

The club is today launching its 12th Man Fund appeal to fans to support the budget for 2020/21 season. We are hoping that fans will pledge in excess of 25,000 pounds for next year's campaign.

Chairman Simon Lawrence said "We're launching this appeal a few months earlier than we did last season and are hoping that this year's appeal will bring in even more than last year's.That's because if we are to build on the progress that has been made on the pitch over the past 3 months, we need to equip Lee with as competitive a budget as possible to allow him to start planning straight away, whether that's by securing those members of the current squad who he wishes to retain or by being able to make offers to those targets he has identified as being key to next season's success.

"As ever, finance is key to all of this so please do what you can to support Lee and the club."

Lee Allinson said "I've really enjoyed my first 3 months as Hendon manager and I feel that we're now starting to see the success that hard work brings after 18 months that has been tough for everyone. While there's still work to be done to secure Step 3 football for next season, now is the time that I would want to start my planning and, as with any manager, the key to that is as competitive a budget as possible. The fans have been amazing so far - myself and my family have been made to feel so welcome - so I hope that you'll be able to support the 12th Man Fund and, who knows, in 12 months' time we could be dreaming of promotion rather than dreading relegation."

If you would like to pledge a donation to the 2020/21 12th Man Fun, please do so by contacting Simon - by email at simon.hendon@btinternet.com, on Twitter at @HFC_Guv, on the Fans of Hendon FC Facebook group or in person.

Thursday 30 January - Collection for Tommy Smith

The proceeds from the bucket collection at Saturday's game with Yate Town will be donated to our centre-half Tommy Smith.

Tommy, who has been on of the lynchpins of our recent revival, suffered a season ending cruciate injury towards the end of our game with Gosport Borough a fortnight ago and faces a battle against time to be fit for next season.

Please give as generously as you can to provide a little extra to help Tommy, who isn't a contracted player, ahead of his period of rehabilitation.

Thursday 30 January - Look ahead to Yate

Hendon aim to make it five wins in a row on Saturday afternoon as they welcome Yate Town to Silver Jubilee Park.

The Greens come into this game in confident mood, having scored 11 goals and conceded just 1 in their past 4 games. This fine form has seen the Greens climb up to 14th in the table, 4 points clear from the bottom three. The visitors, however, sit 19th in the table and stand out of the relegation zone on goal difference.

They are in their own spell of good form having taken all 3 points against Chesham and Taunton (both won 4-1) whilst drawing against Poole and Walton Casuals. The points were shared in the encounter between the two sides earlier in the season in a 2-2 draw, with Yate leaving it till very late to snatch a draw with almost the last kick of the game after Luca Valentine and Connor Calcutt had looked to have secured the points for the Greens.

Hendon will be without Tommy Smith who has sustained an injury that will sideline him for the rest of the season. Meanwhile, Yate have bolstered their squad with the extended loans of 4 Bristol City academy players; Sam Bell, Tommy Conway, Joe Lowe and James Taylor, all of which have featured and impressed for Yate in recent weeks.

Both teams will look to take all 3 points to extend the gap to the bottom three in what promises to be an entertaining contest.
