Monday 21 June - Squad committed to the club

Gary McCann is pleased to announce that, with the exception of four departures, all of last season's squad have committed to the club for the new season.

Bradley Thomas, who joined us from Sutton United during last season, is expected to sign for Braintree Town, a club which is closer to home for him. Peter Dean, who joined us from Bishop's Stortford in January 2009, is expected to return to one of his former clubs, whilst James Bent is expected to move to Wingate & Finchley, where he is also likely to take on a coaching role.

The fourth departure is Yacine Hamada, who is returning to his native Algeria, and is hoping to sign for a club in their professional league. We would like to thank all four players for all their efforts during their time at Hendon, and we wish them all the best for the future.

We are delighted that the remainder of the squad have committed to the club for next season. The committed players include Belal Aiteouakrim, who has made a good recovery from the injury he picked up last season, and Glenn Garner, who spent the last few weeks of last season dual registered at Arlesey Town.

Gary is also pleased to announce that he has secured the services of three new players, two defenders and a striker. Full details will be released once all the paperwork has been completed.

Thursday 10 June - David Stanley

We have been saddened today to hear of the death of former club secretary David Stanley, who was found dead at his home in St Albans by the police.

David had been involved in non-league football for many years, most recently as chairman of the Suburban League for whom he had held a number of offices since 1988. As well as taking up the secretarial role for the Greens, he has held similar positions at a number of clubs including Chesham United, Hemel Hempstead Town, Merthyr Tydfil, Barnet and Berkhamsted Town.

Our thoughts and sympathies are with David's family at this sad time.

Tuesday 08 June - Supporters' Trust looking for new secretary

Hendon FC Supporters' Trust are looking for a new secretary, to take over the role from current acting secretary Chris Rogers after their AGM next month. At the last board meeting Chris gave notice of his intention to stand down as secretary as of the end of July due to other commitments that he felt were impacting on his ability to continue giving the time he thought to be necessary.

The Trust are now meeting once a month, and the main task for the secretary would be to produce minutes from these meetings for distribution around the board, as well as minute the AGM and any SGMs held during the year. The Trust's secretary has also been responsible in recent years for keeping track of the composition of the board and ensuring that we have the right number of elected and co-opted members at any given time to satisfy the company's rules.

To register interest in the role, or if you have any questions about exactly what it entails, please contact Trust co-chairman Phil Rogers on e-mail at philrogersuk@gmail.com.

Chris has said that he intends to remain a member of the Supporters' Trust board on an ongoing basis, and the rest of the board would like to thank him for his efforts while acting as secretary of the Trust.
