What tragic news to hear that Dermot had passed away. He was a wonderful player to watch and was certainly one of the Hendon greats, he had great skill and wonderful commitment and I was glad that I had the privilege to see him on many occasions. Rip Dermot you will never be forgotten

Blimey. That was sudden. 56. Always looked fit, even behind the wheel of a cab. A genuine loss to the game and there aren't many in football about whom that can be said. Stressful pair of activities, driving a cab and coaching footballers.

Hi, Dessie here after many years’ absence from this forum. The news about Dermot brings me here. Without doubt he is my all-time favourite player for Hendon, and such a lovely man as well. Just remember the skill, the audacity, the great joy in watching him play.

To Dermot’s family, I’m sorry for your trouble, as they say in Ireland...

Good wishes to all friends at HFC, see you soon.

I would agree with all the above comments. Dermot was such a skilful, entertaining and innovative player and I feel fortunate to have watched him play.
According to the archives, Dermot scored 62 goals for Hendon and three of them come to mind:

Away to Burton Albion in the GMAC semi final (1-1 draw) 1987
Wembley FC at Wembley Stadium in the Middlesex Charity Cup Final (2-0 win) 1988
Banbury away in the FA Cup (I think it was a late equaliser to bring the score to 3-3 - we eventually won 4-3 aet

RIP Dermot
