Wednesday 12 July - Supporters Association AGM

The Supporters Association held their AGM last night, and thanked supporters for their help in raising a record �15,000 for the club. However, requests were made for more help on matchdays as revenue from raffles and golden goals had fallen compared with last year. Andrew Landesberg took some questions from the supporters and confirmed that a 3 year programme of work on the pitch had commenced. He also confirmed that the Barnet deal is very unlikely to go ahead as Barnet are finding it very difficult to raise the necessary funds. Andrew reminded supporters that the club are in the driving seat in any deal that happens. He confirmed that the board were now going to concentrate on Hendon Football Club and gradually developing the ground. The Football Trust money is still available and the deadline for matching their figure of �140,000 has been extended. The board will continue to look at ways of raising money, and also of making the club self-sufficient.
