It has been announced this evening that first team coach Scott Cousins has parted company with the club.

Scott posted the following message on Twitter this evening.

"I am officially no longer part of Hendon FC. I'd like to thank everyone at the club for making my last 2 years as 1st team coach enjoyable & memorable!

The play-off's & cup final successes are something I'll never forget. I feel the time is right for me personally to take on a new challenge and wish the club every success in the future!

There's too many people for me to thank individually, but I'll be down to SJP in person to show my appreciation to you all! GREEN ARMY!"

Speaking to Greensnet this evening manager Gary McCann said "I would like to thank Scott personally. We agreed amicably after the weekend that the timing was right to go our separate ways.

"It has been an absolute pleasure to work in the same dugout over the last two years with lots of good memories.

"He leaves with my utmost respect and I'm sure wherever the new challenge arises, he will be an excellent asset.

"Good luck and all the best going forward Scotty."

Scott first joined the club in the summer of 2003, appearing in a friendly at Hanwell Town having been released by Chelsea at the end of the previous season. He made his debut in a 4-1 win at Basingstoke Town, and went on to make 51 appearances that season, scoring 8 goals.

He left in 2004 to join St Albans City and also appeared for Carshalton Athletic before returning in October 2009.

He went on to make a total of 237 appearances, scoring 14 goals, and joined the backroom staff in the summer of 2014 following the departure of Junior Lewis.

Everyone associated with the club would like to thank Scott for his efforts both as a player and as a member of the coaching team, and we wish him every success for the future.
