The club are delighted to announce that Gary McCann has secured the signature of two experienced ex-professional players today.

Frank Sinclair is a former Jamaica international whose clubs included Chelsea and Leicester City (who paid the Blues £2 million for his services). His last club was Blue Square Bet (Conference) Premier Division Wrexham. Frank's other clubs include West Bromwich Albion, Huddersfield Town, Lincoln City and Wycombe Wanderers. He has made more than 600 appearances for Football League clubs and 28 times for Jamaica, including at the 1998 FIFA World Cup.

Darren Currie's career has gone full circle by rejoining Hendon. The son of former Hendon player Paul Currie (and nephew of Tony, who also made a handful of appearances for the Greens in 1985-86), Darren grew up less than a mile from the club’s old Claremont Road home and played in the Hendon youth team which reached the FA Youth Cup competition proper in 1991-92. After leaving Hendon, he was signed by West Ham and although he was given a squad number, he did not make any competitive first-team appearances for the Hammers. Darren's career also has seen him pass the 600-appearance mark and his clubs include Shrewsbury Town, Plymouth Argyle, Barnet, Wycombe Wanderers, Brighton & Hove Albion, Ipswich Town, Coventry City, Derby County, Luton Town, Chesterfield and Dagenham & Redbridge. He started this season at Boreham Wood.

Delighted Hendon manager Gary McCann said, "These are two players we have been keeping an eye for the last couple of weeks. I played with Frank for five years in youth football Chelsea and he is doing a favour for my coach Junior Lewis, who he played with at Leicester City. Like Frank, Darren is going to add plenty of quality and experience to the side.

"I think these are very exciting signings and shows our intent to go forward."
