How long have you been supporting Hendon? Been going since 1998.

What was your first game? Can't remember but it was that season.

How did you find Hendon FC? My Dad has supported the club since 1960 odd who lived in the area.

Why do you support Hendon FC? My Dad followed Hendon home and away back in the day and my gran knew HAPPY BARTLETT who used to stick fixture posters up all around Brent Street etc .. Started going with a couple of mates from Hendon St Marys when we 12 or 13.

Favourite Hendon game? Leyton Orient 0-1 Hendon - FA Cup, 25th November 1997. The Same as Steve here.

Went with my brother on the supporters coach from Claremont Road to Orient that night and a great sense of pride travelling there. A good sing song at the pub on the corner before hand and sheer delight when Junior scored that will live with me forever.

Favourite Hendon memory? Also the same as Steve again. Other than the game above, seeing over 2000 people at Claremont Road for the first game against Leyton Orient. Remember the Arsenal stewards dealing with this game, and didn't know what to do when we equalised. A great atmosphere.

The other one that springs to mind is of course the round before away at St Albans. I reckon that was one of our best away followings for some time as it seemed all the Hendon faithful were behind the goal so the atmosphere was decent. After the game many made it back to the pub just near the ground and watched the draw live. Good memories ...

Favourite team to play? The old Enfield back in the day and Aylesbury. Good banter.

Favourite Hendon player of all time? Dave Root, Uche Egbe and Ian Dowie from that era. Always got involved with us behind the goal.
