Hendon defender John-Simon White has not, as previously reported, left the club. White, who has been at LOOT Stadium for 4 years, is currently awaiting a major operation and will not be fit in the immediate future. "I couldn't just leave John-Simon without a club," said Hendon manager Frank Murphy. "He is still part of the club, but won't be playing as he needs a second operation on his groin. He is not under contract, and cannot train, but he has been very useful especially for the rehabbing Gary McCann, helping him a lot. In fact a he has been a constant companion for Gary."
