How long have you been supporting Hendon? 35 years

What was your first game? MCC Final 1979. 3 - 1 win over Harrow. Len Burt, then Supporters Association Chairman, predicted the score.

How did you find Hendon FC? My uncle was taken to games by his uncle and he did the same for my brother and I.

Why do you support Hendon FC? It is a way of life.

Favourite Hendon game? Beating Leyton Orient 1 - 0 away. Beating Wealdstone 5 - 4. Top game though - 9 April 1987 MSC away against Harrow. 3 - 0 down by half time. Simon, our main singer at a concert. As wwe came out onto the pitch for the second half Jeremy (Simon's brother) started singing 'We will win'. We joined in and sang for the whole of the second half. The players were peed off with us 'taking the p***' as they saw it. Battled back to 3 - 3 by full time. We knocked in 2 more in extra time. Pitch invasion afterwards. Fantastic night.

Favourite Hendon memory? So many. Playing Aldershot at Claremont Road and only seeing half the pitch due to fog. Leyton Orient away. The singing during that game, aided by the vocal Clitterhouse boys.

Favourite team to play? Any club whose fans enter into the true spirit of the game.

Favourite Hendon player of all time? Uche, Dowie, Whits, McCann, Worley, Xavier, Gripper, Gibbo, Drummy, Campbell.... The list goes on. We have been so lucky with some fantastic players who have worn the shirt with pride.
