Hendon have added more experience to their squad as the season moves into its final and increasingly frantic 3 months.

Last week, Hendon introduced Lee Endersby, the much-travelled former England international who won his only cap as a Harrow Borough player in 1996. Since then Endersby has seen action for a large number of clubs, including Aldershot, Bishops Stortford, Boreham Wood, Carshalton Athletic, Enfield, Hitchin Town and Tooting & Mitcham United, playing for the Terrors against Hendon in this year's FA Cup. "I have known Lee for years and he has played for me when I was an assistant manager. He is capable of turning a game in a minute."

Rejoining the Greens is goalkeeper Gary McCann, who was recently released by Slough Town after an unhappy spell at Aylesbury United. McCann, who was one of the first signings made by Frank Murphy in March 1997, was first choice at Claremont Road for a number of seasons until he suffered a serious knee injury in April 2000. Further surgery in the summer of 2001 meant he was unable to regain his place at Hendon when Dave Anderson took over as boss and McCann was then unable to dislodge David Hook after he regained full fitness. Anderson explained, "I have signed Gary as cover for David Hook because we have a lot of games coming up and he will be able to give Hook a rest."

The third signing is central defender Lee Harvey, another player who has been with Mr Anderson, this time at Aylesbury United. Harvey also saw service with Slough Town and St Albans City before joining Boreham Wood, where he was part of the management team with Micky Engwell last season. This season he relinquished his management/coaching duties and remained a player, until the club released him last month. "Lee is a very experienced defender," said Anderson. "He has been there, done that and knows all about football at this level."
