Friday 30 May - U16s awarded league title

The under 16s have been awarded their league title by the Harrow Youth League after Hanwell Town were unable to fulfill the final fixture of the season. Whilst in the normal way teams who are level on points at the top of the table would normally play-off for the championship, the fact that Hanwell were also unable to play a play-off, the Harrow Youth League took the decision to award the title to our youngsters.

It is a great reward for the management team of Lewis Copeland and Marco Amaldi, who took over during the season from Kris Bhalla, and of course for all the players who have worked so hard during the campaign.

Monday 12 May - Title still on for U16s

Despite dropping two points this evening, the under 16s can still win their league title. A win against Hanwell Town on Sunday morning will leave the two clubs level on points at the top of the table. This evening, they drew 2-2 against Pinnacle, all four goals coming in the first 16 minutes of the second half. The second Hendon goal was scored by Jack Hopkins after Pinnacle had taken the lead before being pulled back level almost immediately. Despite dropping points, manager Lewis Copeland was happy with the performance. The game on Sunday will take place at Claremont Road, kicking off at 11.00am.

Wednesday 07 May - Goal feast at Claremont Road

This evening saw a thoroughly entertaining game between the Hendon first team and the Hendon supporters. The final score was 7-7, with the pick of the supporters goals coming from Ricky Lawrence who drove home a fine strike. The supporters team had guest appearances from Gary McCann, Freddie Hyatt, Bontcho Guentchev and Mark Findlay, the latter of whom was one of the goalscorers with a fine header past Marc Leach who was in the goal for the first team at the time.

All of the first team squad took part in the game with the exception of the unavailable Belal Aiteouakrim. However, stand-in manager Iavor Guentchev decided to play everyone out of position. Starring role for the first team went to striker James Burgess who, much to everyone's amazement, scored a hat-trick, whilst there was the strange sight of Richard Wilmot and Luke Blackmore both playing outfield.
