The best non-league side I have ever seen was Enfield in the mid-80's. I believe they have maintained a distinct blueprint. Something I think Hendon can establish over the ensuing years. Their style hasn't changed, despite the changes at club level. Back then, Andy Pape in goal, a strong centre-half, Dave Howell, similar players today. Hayzeldene, Drummy, robust, Ironton, Oliver, guile and graft in the middle. Furlong/Flint up front - potent.
Ottaway reminded me yesterday of Flint keeping the backs occupied chasing shadows. Several ended up at Claremont Road.
Both clubs having had near death experiences are keeping the rivalry going. Moving forward, I think we would all enjoy both clubs contesting top honours. North London, somewhere in the future has a sleeping giant somewhere.
I think it's a potentially interesting dynamic.
