For general information, the website archive has little information on the reserves, for a couple of reasons.

Firstly, when I was researching various years (1943 - 1978) of the Hendon Times at the British Newspaper Library when it was in Colindale, I felt it more important to concentrate on first team matches, even though for the most part I failed to note opposition line-ups (when given) and did nothing about acquiring match reports. Secondly, most reports on reserve matches were sketchy in the information given, and from memory most reports omitted line-ups.

What we do have has either been from observation or reports passed to my son Steve when he was updating the site, or very occasionally from old programmes.
