Hendon's first team, whose season has been deluged by postponements at home and away, have been positively snowed under with fixtures in the past few months - compared to the club's reserve squad.

Saturday's Suburban League Cup postponement against Chertsey Town at Alwyn's Lane means that they will go a minimum of 102 days between Suburban League fixtures. On Wednesday night, they are due to host Walton & Hersham in a Suburban League Premier Division fixture.

Their last game was at Basingstoke on Saturday 4 November 2000, 14 weeks - 98 days - ago. Thus today is the 100th day "anniversary" of that match.

Putting this into perspective, the gap between Hendon Reserves' last match of the 1999-2000 season (10 May) and their first of the current campaign (26 August) was 108 days.

Asked how he was coping with this enforced spell of inactivity, manager Alan Rolnick said, "It has been very difficult. I am on the phone to all the players every other day, trying to keep them upbeat."
