Saturday 14 September - Greens shot down by Magpies

Hendon once again were made to pay for a profligate first half by Dorchester Town at SJP this afternoon.

Chris Grace saved an early Charlie Davis penalty before Matty Harriott stroked home an effort from the edge of the box to give the Greens the advantage.

Both sides had excellent chances to increase the score but Shane Murphy made a number of good saves from Ryan Hope and Connor Calcutt, whilst Grace made a couple of excellent saves to keep the Greens ahead.

After the break, only Grace kept the Greens from a hiding as Jack Hoey helped himself to an excellent second half hattick whilst Grace made three further excellent saves to keep the Greens alive.

Friday 13 September - Look ahead to Dorchester

Tomorrow we resume our Southern League campaign after a fortnight's hiatus with the visit of Dorchester Town to Silver Jubilee Park.

Like ourselves, Dorchester ended up skirting rather closer to relegation than they would have liked, however the appointment in March of Callum Brooks as manager saw the Magpies hit a vein of form which not only dragged them clear of the drop zone, but finish one place above the Greens with a near identical record thanks to having a better goal difference by two goals.

The two sides have met on three previous occasions with Dorchester winning a 3rd Qualifying Round FA Cup tie in October 2014 1-0 - the game which ended Leon Smith's club record equalling scoring run - and then in the league last season, one of the best 45 minutes of the season saw us win 3-0 away from home almost a year ago before a fairly turgid goalless draw here at SJP in Aprili between the two sides.

This season, as Brooks looks to settle in a number of new faces the Magpies have found the going a little tough. One win - on opening day against winless Beaconsfield Town - and three points is all they currently have to show for their opening five league games, however they did progress through to the 2nd Qualifying Round of the FA Cup with a comfortable 2-0 win over Evesham Town on Sunday. Tom Bath, a summer signing from Tiverton Town, scored both goals to continue his prolific start to the campaign.

The Greens go into the game on the back of the penalty shoot-out win over Cockfosters on Tuesday night and should be able to welcome back one or two recent absentees. Francis Amartey, signed yesterday from Slough Town on-loan, should be involved as Jimmy Gray seeks to extend the unbeaten run into a fifth match in all competitions ahead of next week's FA Cup tie with Deeping Rangers.

Tuesday 10 September - Dickinson the penalty hero

Tyla Dickinson was the Hendon hero this evening as his three penalty saves in a shoot out saw the Greens progress to the next stage of the London Senior Cup against Cockfosters.

Cekyan Karahozlu gave the visitors an early lead after five minutes outpacing the Hendon defence and finishing coolly whilst Hendon's equaliser came five minutes after the break when a goalmouth scramble went in off a defender.

Both sides attacked with intent, the better chances falling Hendon's way, but Cockfosters fully deserved the shoot-out.

Dickinson saved the visitors' first three efforts whilst Kameron English and Howard Hall scored for the Greens. Brad Robinson, who made a number of excellent claims from crosses, then saved from Luca Valentine before Cockfosters' fourth penalty hit the post to give the Greens progression into round 2.

Saturday 07 September - Greens edge past Little Common

A late Romario Jonas header in his first apperance of the season saw Hendon come through a tricky FA Cup tie at Little Common this afternoon.

In a fairly even contest the Greens saw the two best chances of the first half go begging before the hosts had strong shouts for a penalty waved away after the break. Jonas sealed progression for the visitors nine minutes from time heading home from a corner.

The draw for the 2nd Qualifying round will take place on Monday and the result means that our London Senior Cup tie with Cockfosters will go ahead on Tuesday as planned.

Friday 06 September - FA Cup starts tomorrow

The FA Cup begins tomorrow for the Greens with a trip to East Sussex and visit to Little Common FC.

Little Common were formed in 1966 as Albion United, based in Bexhill-on-sea, originally as two youth teams and gradually grew, adding a men's section and winning the East Sussex League in 1977/8 gaining them promotion into the Sussex County League.

In 1986 the club changed their name to Little Common Albion and rejoined the East Sussex League after finishing bottom of their division in 1995 and a further relegation saw them return to junior football for a few years.

In 1999 the club returned to the East Sussex League and gained promotion to the Sussex County League (which became the Southern Combination League) in 2005.

The club currently sit 9th in the Premier Division of the Southern Combination League (the same division as Lancing who we met last season) having taken 7 points from their opening 5 league matches.

Victories in the FA Cup over Corinthian FC and then Three Bridges have brought them to the 1st Qualifying Round although they fell at the first hurdle of the FA Vase last Saturday losing 2-1 to K Sports. They got back on track in midweek however with an impressive 5-0 win over Hailsham Town in the Peter Bentley Challenge Cup.

Little Common play their home matches currently at Eastbourne United's ground.

If a replay is required then it will take place at SJP on Tuesday night with a 7:45pm kick-off, we hope to see a strong travelling contingent of the Green Army making the journey south to cheer the boys on.

Hendon paid the price for a catalogue of missed second half chances as Yate Town equaliser deep in stoppage time for a share of the spoils this afternoon.

Luca Valentine opened the scoring in the 7th minute before Nicholas Peare equalised shortly after half time. Connor Calcutt restored the advantage with twenty minutes before Hendon wasted four clearcut chances to make the game safe.

They were made to pay in the last minute of stoppage time when Luke Spokes' shot beat Tyla Dickinson to salvage a point.

Friday 30 August - One in, one out

There's been a couple of changes to the squad announced today with one new arrival and one player moving on.

Firstly goalkeeper Max Huxter has left the club in pursuit of first-team football. Max signed just prior to the beginning of the season but has been unable to dislodge Chris Grace from the number 1 shirt. We wish Max all the best for the next steps in his career.

Incoming is 19-year old defender Harvie Gardiner from Hanwell Town. Formerly an Ebbsfleet Youth player, Harvie had a spell with North Greenford United towards the end of last season making 14 appearances and scoring once. We welcome Harvie to the club and hope he enjoys his time at SJP.

Friday 30 August - Awayday to Yate tomorrow

Tomorrow afternoon sees us make the journey down the M4 for our first ever game with Yate Town who were newly promoted last season.

After finishing 3rd in the Southern League Division 1 South last season, the Bluebells gained promotion following a penalty shoot-out success over Moneyfields in the play-off semi-final and then beating Cinderford Town 3-1 in the final to secure a return to step 3 following a 10-year absence.

This season, under the stewardship of boss Paul Britton, Yate have one win and three defeats from their opening four league matches and drew 2-2 with Exmouth Town in their FA Cup Preliminary Round tie last weekend.

The opening four matches has seen the Bluebells meet three of the fancied sides for the title. Following a 4-1 defeat against fellow new-boys Blackfield & Langley, the Bluebells picked up an astonishing 4-0 triumph over much fancied Taunton Town on the road to get themselves up and running. That was followed by a 3-0 defeat at Poole Town and then, on Bank Holiday Monday a narrow 3-2 defeat against Salisbury.

With the Greens going into the game without any major injury concerns and with confidence buoyed by that 3-1 victory over Chesham, they'll be looking to build on that success whilst Yate will be looking to get back on track after their two most recent defeats.

The postcode for the ground is BS37 7LE and is approximately 7.7 miles off Junction 18 of the M4.

After leaving the M4 take the 3rd exit onto the A46, Bath Road and follow the road for 2.1 miles. Then turn left onto the A432, Badmington Road and follow this for approximately 3.5 miles until the roundabout with the B4059. Take the 3rd exit at this roundabout onto the B4059.

Take the 2nd exit at the first roundabout and the 1st exit at the 2nd roundabout to remain on the B4059. Turn right onto North Road by The Fox pub and Lodge Road is the first road on the left. The ground is at the end of Lodge Road.

We look forward to seeing as many supporters make the trip as possible and wish everyone a safe journey.

Wednesday 28 August - More details on the Duke of Cambridge's visit

The Duke of Cambridge, President of the Football Association (FA), will visit Hendon FC on Friday 6th September to learn more the club's mental health outreach initiatives. The visit will form part of Heads Up, a new season-long campaign which will harness the power of football to encourage more people - particularly men - to feel comfortable talking about their mental health, and feel able to support their friends and families through difficult times. The visit also takes place the day before the club's participation in the Emirates FA Cup First Round Qualifying.

In 2017, Hendon FC launched an outreach programme in conjunction with the Brent Early Years Intervention Service to enable young people from the local community who live with mental health issues to attend training sessions at the club. Using football as a means to help improve their mental health and wellbeing, the group of young people formed the Hendon FC Mental Health team, and now attend specially tailored training sessions at the club on a weekly basis. The Duke will join a number of players on the pitch, and will hear more about how the project has helped them manage their mental health challenges. His Royal Highness will also speak to a number of the club's fans and supporters in the stands who have experienced mental health issues, to understand how football and the sense of community it provides can play an important role on their journeys to recovery.

The Duke will also spend time at Hendon with a number of the club's coaches, and will discuss their role in supporting players with their mental health. The visit coincides with the launch of The FA's new comprehensive guidance for coaches and managers, distributed to FA affiliated adult clubs. His Royal Highness will discuss the new guidelines with the Hendon FC coaches, and how it can support them in identifying the signs of mental health issues, and offer support and signposting where needed to help improve the mental wellbeing of players.

Launched at the Community Shield by The FA and Heads Together, Heads Up is a season-long campaign spearheaded by The Duke of Cambridge which will use the influence and popularity of football to show the nation that mental health is just as important as physical health. It will support the important work which is already taking place across the UK to end the stigma surrounding mental health, and will strive to raise awareness, spark conversation and signpost support for those in need. Heads Up will be visible across all levels of the game, from the elite to grassroots, and at the biggest moments of The FA's season including men's and women's England internationals and FA competitions. The campaign will conclude at the Emirates FA Cup Final on 23rd May, 2020.
