It was not an easy week for Hendon's staff. Early on Wednesday morning, assistant manager Jon Turner was found to be suffering a seizure by his young daughter Evie. She alertly told her older brother Jack, who quickly rang for an ambulance to take Mr Turner to hospital. After a couple of days in hospital, and a battery of tests, Mr Turner was released although he admitted remembering nothing between setting his alarm on Tuesday night and waking up in hospital.

Later on Wednesday, reserve team manager John Morris, in his first few weeks at the club, learned that his mother-in-law had collapsed suddenly and died.

Manager Dave Anderson said, "It has been a difficult week. We pride ourselves as being a real club and when one of us has something like this, we all feel the pain."
