Murphy celebrates 4 years at Hendon

On Tuesday night, 6 March, Hendon boss Frank Murphy celebrates his 4th anniversary as manager at LOOT Stadium.

His first game in charge was on Saturday 8 March 1997, when temporary boss Andy O'Brien selected the team, and a John Ugbah goal gave Hendon a 1-0 victory over fellow strugglers Chertsey Town. Before tonight's game with Basingstoke, his Ryman League record with Hendon is played 163 games, won 73, drawn 33 and lost 57, goals scored 268, conceded 240.

In addition, he has twice taken Hendon to the FA Cup 2nd round proper - including the club's 2nd ever victory over Football League opposition - twice won the Puma (Isthmian Full Members) Cup and once won the Middlesex Senior Cup.

The only two Hendon players who have been at the club since Murphy joined are Simon Clarke and Curtis Warmington, though the latter has been involved in coaching for the past season and a half. Murphy's first signing was central defender Richard Nugent and his second was goalkeeper Gary McCann, who remains first choice between the posts.
