Having spoken to a few people there is a consensus that we should start promoting the club IF and when we move to SJP. I don't feel we can wait. SJP is not too far from Harrow. If we are promoting on social media then our reach is wider than shoving leaflets through doors in and around the ground. So the support we attract will not be geographically close to Earlsmead. We should be marketing Hendon FC NOT Hendon FC at Earlsmead. That is only our home, at the moment.

Since leaving Claremont Road our three concerns have been - finances, crowds and our own home. As SJP is a potential home that leaves two worries. If we get another 50, 100, 200 at games that would eliminate the last two worries. Bigger crowds is a sustainable future. Asking for donations or bigger donations is short term.

Marketing the club via social media is free, instant and has an incredible reach. Danny Abrahams has had some great ideas and approaches to social media. James Furness has some fantastic graphics and ideas. We have a number of supporters who have social media accounts. So if James creates the graphics and you are willing to help us by adding them to your timeline please email me and I will create a 'Marketing Team' distribution list. This is our club.

I would also request that the Trust, club, Association, Rob, Graham, Steve R, etc meet (subject to availability) to try and create some cohesion and planning for the short and long term future.
