foul language - is it necessary ?

Have a look at the average age of your supporters - 50+ I'd guess.

It's the same at lots of other non-league clubs.

Ever wondered why ? Well, would you take your kids or grandchildren to a match where foul language is the norm ? Probably not - well there are plenty of others like you. The small crowds just emphasise the use of the language. So young kids don't get the habit (or joy even) of watching their local team.
So gates dwindle away as we hold silences from time to time for the departed stalwart supporters.

Carry on as we are and there will be no Hendon FC in twenty years.

A family-friendly atmosphere at games is just good business sense. Foul language doesn't help create that.
