Hendon have been blessed with so many great goalkeepers over the years as well as John Swanell.

Here are my top half-dozen, before Tom (this excludes keepers who were with us for less than three months – i.e. Joe McDonnell).

• Mike Pinner, who played for Hendon and Manchester United, as an amateur, in the old First Division (top flight)
• Mark Broughton, who was the goalkeeper who helped to keep us up in 1985–86 (for those who were there, remember his save just before half-time in the last game at Slough!)
• Dave Root, loyal servant and so good when a transfer tribunal valued him, they priced him out of the market.
• Scott Ashcroft, whose career was cut short.
• Gary McCann, another top keeper whose career was curtailed by injury.
• Richard Wilmot, top bloke as well as an insanely brave goalkeeper – played 15 minutes with a broken arm.
