Tonight's fixture against Erith & Belvedere is, I am fairly sure, Hendon's first ever match wholly indoors. Will we be roofless?

I would agree as far as 11-a-side matches are concerned.

However Hendon took part in the Evening Standard London 5-a-side competition in 1977 at what was then known as Wembley Empire Pool. I can't remember who we played, but from memory we won our first match and lost the second - both close games.

I thought it was 1972, but could be wrong. I went with my dad. Great days for the Empire Pool. Saw Alice Cooper there in June '72 (Dad didn't go to that).

My observation was meant in 11-a-side football. Hendon also played in the Isthmian League five-a-side tournament in the late 1970s. It was really weird sitting on a chair behind an inflated barrier on the 3G pitch surround with a crowd of around 35 (including officials), under what looks like an inflated roof.
