"With staff from Stanmore College delivering a very high level of teaching to the BTec students, and Hendon coaches developing the footballing knowledge, tactical awareness side, it promises to be a very successful partnership.

"The ethos and enthusiasm of James Duncan and his staff from Stanmore college embodies the learning environment and high standards we as a club want to create for the students that attend the course.
