Dave Diedhiou became the 12th player to reach the milestone of 400 competitive appearances for Hendon this afternoon.

Dave, who joined the club ahead of the 2008/09 season and made his debut in a 1-0 defeat against Sutton United. He was the last Hendon player to score a legitimate goal at Claremont Road when he finished against Wealdstone in September 2008, and also scored the first Hendon home goal of the 'nomadic' years against Dulwich Hamlet at Earlsmead.

Since then, Dave has appeared in twelve seasons and he marked his milestone today with his 44th goal for the club.

The word 'legend' is oft overused in today's game, however, with Dave becoming only the twelfth man to reach this milestone in the club's history since our inception in 1908, his place in Hendon folklore is assured.

Congratulations Dave, and here's to 500.
