Simpson left to join Leyton Orient, a transfer that Junior took personally as he considered himself - justifiably, it must be said - a far better footballer.
Maidstone United F.C.
He told some Hendon youngsters in , "When Simpson joined Orient I wasn't jealous, I was angry because I knew I was a better player, but I was even more determined to get back into the Football League. I knew I could play in the League. Whitmarsh and Lewis formed a lethal partnership in the second half of the season, which culminated in a match unbeaten run, including a thumping demolition of Basingstoke Town in the Full Members Cup final at Chesham United's ground. The run of nine wins and two draws to end the campaign saw Hendon finish in fifth place, one of the best placings in a quarter of a century.
Junior finished the season with 22 goals in just 41 appearances, and the Greens' stunning end-of-season form immediately made them title favourites for It must be said that the campaign was more than a little disappointing. There was another FA Cup first round appearance and Junior was nearly a hero again against Notts County when he twice came within inches of scoring in the first game at Claremont Road - the replay, after a postponement, was lost The Ryman League form, however, was inconsistent at best, mainly because all the goals scored by Lewis and Whitmarsh were more than cancelled out by less-than-stellar defending.
Junior scored 28 goals in 55 appearances, but was eclipsed by his strike-partner who grabbed 42 in 53 appearances. He returned to Hendon in , mainly on the coaching side, though Junior did pass the appearance mark with eight games off the bench. He announced that he was leaving the club shortly before the end of the season to further his career, and has since been appointed as assistant head coach to Dave Hockaday at Leeds United.
Joined Hendon: As player: September ; as player-coach June ;. It is with sadness that we have learnt of the death of former player Graeme Sewell, who died on 14th June, aged just Graeme, who was born in May , played for the club between and , making a total of 51 appearances, scoring 17 goals. He remained local to the club, living in Childs Hill, and his funeral will take place at Golders Green Crematorium on Thursday 3rd July at 2pm.
Our deepest sympathies go out to his family at this very sad time. The standings in the World Cup predicition competition after the group stages have been made available. Leading the way before the knockout rounds begin is Chris Lamb with 77 points, whilst David Coote and Scott Searle are joint second with 71 points. All entrants have until 5pm this afternoon to submit their predictions for the knock out stages, and should have received an email from Paul Butler to that effect.
Today's Green and Gold subject is the man who is second on the appearances table in the Isthmian League era, former player and manager Gary Hand. Gary Hand left Watford when his apprenticeship ended and joined Hendon at the start of the season. He made his debut in the No. Roy Butler's goal gave Hendon all three points. From that point on, Gary was almost an ever-present - he missed just one match, the day before the first leg of the Middlesex Senior Cup Final against Hampton. Gary's first season was certainly memorable and he finished it as the owner of winners' medals from the FA Amateur Cup and Middlesex Senior Cup and a London Senior Cup runners-up medal.
Hendon manager John Evans and his successor Jimmy Quail put together one of the most dominant and stingiest defences ever seen in the Isthmian League: John Swannell in goal, behind right-back Tony Jennings, centre-backs Alan Phillips and Peter Deadman and Gary at left-back. The quintet had been together in the Amateur Cup Final victory over Enfield at Wembley and all five made at least 52 appearances the following season as Hendon won the Isthmian League with a record of 34 wins and six draws in 42 matches. The Greens conceded only 18 League goals all season and eight in the 34 games between 22 August and 17 April.
The Greens' total of 74 points would equate today to with three for win, which came into effect the following season. Gary was selected for the England Amateur international squad, but did not win a cap. In , Hendon enjoyed their best ever FA Cup run, reaching the third round proper.
Gary would, in today's football, not have seen out the replay as his spectacular save gave the Magpies a penalty from which they made it As he was being booked, the referee said to Gary, "Good save! It was only a one-year hiatus, however, as Gary was back in green and white in And he would enjoy further FA Cup glory as Hendon recorded their first-ever victory over a Football League club in the competition, beating Reading before succumbing to a late Swindon Town goal in round two.
Gary finished the season with the first of three Middlesex Charity Cup winner's medals, to go with his earlier hat-trick of Middlesex Senior successes. Three weeks before the Barking game, Gary had celebrated his first Hendon goal a chip over 6 feet 8 inches Staines Town goalkeeper Kelvin Hopkins ; it came in his th first-team appearance - rather making a mockery of the line in the Amateur Cup Final programme, "watch out for his left foot"!
If one word summed up Gary's Hendon career, consistency would be it. He was close to an ever-present every season from until , when the club encountered its first big financial problem. New manager Dave Mawson did things on the cheap and used mainly youngsters, but it didn't work and Gary returned to Hendon in February, in the role as player-manager, assisted by his former boss, Jimmy Quail.
Work commitments meant he had to give up after seeing Hendon achieve safety, but he returned in the summer of It proved to be a most unhappy time in charge as the Greens were bottom of the table when he was relieved of his duties and replaced by Ted Hardy. It wasn't quite the end, however, as Gary returned in the early s, managing the unders midweek team and then the reserves.
Joined Hendon: As player: Summer , summer ; as player-manager February ;. Left Hendon: Summer , summer , summer and November Under 16s will be admitted free. We are pleased to announce that we will be playing Chesham United at Earlsmead in a friendly on Monday 28th July, kicking off at pm. This game will be played for the Dave Stanley Memorial Shield - which the two clubs competed for at Chesham in when a solitary goal from Lubomir Guentchev won the game for us. Dave Stanley was involved as secretary at both clubs other the years, and we are delighted to be playing for this trophy in his memory once again.
The Supporters Association launched their own website over the weekend. It will focus on the work they do for the club, and includes their own online shop. The shop is already populated with items that are available, including a number of clearance items, and they are planning to list all the old programmes that are available once they have been catalogued. Also on the site, you can join the Association, find out a little about its history and see what their plans are for next season.
The latest in the series focuses on a player who made a big impression during a little more than three years with the Greens, Danny Lakey. Described as a robust winger, he was much more than the typical playmaking wide-man who created goals rather than scoring them. A return of 55 goals from matches would, in the present era, be a more than acceptable total for the leading goalscorer, especially the 30 goals in 49 appearances in There is a strong case to say that Danny was the missing link in the Hendon team, the final key component that turned a very good team into a Championship winner.
The season was barely under way when Danny made his debut. Hendon had won three and drawn one of the opening four league games, and beaten Leyton in the FA Cup, when Danny played in a home draw against Kingstonian, David Hyde grabbing both goals. The crowd at Claremont Road that Tuesday night - 8 September - was 1,, almost fewer than had watched the local derby against Enfield a week earlier, but still what proved to be Hendon's third-highest in the league that season.
Danny's first Hendon goal came in the win at Hitchin Town a week after his debut. That set up maybe the greatest performance in the club's history, the win over Arsenal in the latter competition. After a hat-trick from a young John Radford, Danny reduced the arrears before a Hyde hat-trick won the game for the Greens at Highbury. If Arsenal's defence couldn't cope with Danny and the Hendon attack, what chance did the Isthmian League or lesser amateur clubs have?
The Greens amassed goals in all competitions - scoring everything from nil to nine - and finished with a treble of Middlesex Senior Cup, Isthmian League title and Amateur Cup. The league was won in a play-off against Enfield at Dulwich Hamlet and Danny scored the last goal in a win.

He was one of five Hendon players to be selected for the Isthmian League representative team during the season. Hendon couldn't repeat the Amateur Cup success in , losing to Wealdstone at Wembley, and a large part of the reason for that was the long injury list. In particular, Jimmy Quail suffered a terrible broken leg in the quarter-final victory over Wycombe Wanderers.
Danny also caught the injury bug and didn't play between 15 January and 19 April, four days before the Amateur Cup Final, for which he wasn't selected. All-in-all he played in just 28 out of 53 games, but still contributed nine goals. The crowded end-of-season season schedule saw 10 league games, the Amateur Cup Final, two Middlesex Senior Cup ties - also against Wealdstone - the Wycombe Hospitals Cup and a friendly in 41 days. The title decider came on 3 May when Danny and Hendon couldn't break down the Leytonstone defence and the goalless draw eventually proved enough for the Granleigh Road club to take the title by two points - it was two for a win in those days - so a Hendon win would have left both teams on 60 points.
Although Danny enjoyed much better fitness in , Hendon were not as strong as they had been in the two previous seasons. Danny missed only a dozen of 57 games and netted 16 times to finish joint-second on the scoring charts with Dave Swain, 14 behind Tony Harding. The Greens finished in fifth place, but the goals for column showed only 64, down from the season before. His absence in the second replay of the Amateur Cup semi-final, a loss to Skelmersdale, certainly didn't help Hendon's cause. All good things must come to an end and it was clear early in the season that Danny was no longer a regular first choice.
The Hammers won Danny joined Ramsgate in December , but made one final appearance for Hendon. On 13 April , there was a special challenge match between Hendon of and the all-conquering team. John Swannell and Dave Hogwood were eligible for both squads, but elected to join Danny, now with Maidstone United, in the squad, who won If you or someone you know wishes to get fit and healthy then we have a programme that can help and raise money for the club and Great Ormond Street Hospital at the same time.

New season ticket application forms will be available soon, but in the meantime if you would like to apply for one, please contact the club via email on admin hendonfc. The latest in the series focuses on another favourite Hendon servant, Simon Clarke. Few players with appearances have come as close as Simon Clarke did to be out of Hendon before his tally had reached Manager Mick Browne played him in midfield, sometimes on the left, sometimes in the middle, but he was a square peg in a round hole and his intricate control came to nought with his team-mates unable to support him.
Throughout , Simon was forced into unfamiliar midfield roles and was transfer listed by Mick Browne, then Neil Price, with no takers. Nonetheless, he appeared in all but four matches. Simon scored 16 goals in his Hendon career, the most important of which came on 15 April when the Greens were in a desperate battle against relegation. His consistency in a struggling team earned Simon the first of his two Supporters' Association Player-of-the-Year awards, not bad for a player who had been available for transfer early in the season. Actually, subsequent managers Frank Murphy and Dave Anderson later made him available, so Simon had the unusual experience of being transfer-listed by four different managers at the same club.
For most of his remaining time at Hendon, the number three shirt was his. He was the only Hendon player to appear in all eight FA Cup competition proper ties in the s, and played his part in the glorious night at Brisbane Road on 25 November when Gary, Freddie and Junior combined to knock-out Leyton Orient. Having played in more advanced roles, Simon thrived in Frank Murphy's attacking style and without neglecting his basic defensive duties; he was a dangerous player down the left hand side - often with Junior just in front of him.
Another string to Simon's bow was his talent as an emergency goalkeeper; on a number of occasions he had to step into the breach.

Goalkeeping was in his blood and a cousin, Mel Capleton, played in the Football League for a number of years. On a rare foray forward, Simon accidentally kicked Capleton, who responded with, "Do you always kick your cousin. At the end of the season, Hendon won the Full Members Cup with a superb second half show against Basingstoke at Chesham's ground.
Twelve months later, after an arduous campaign, the Greens retained the trophy, albeit in more functional style against Worthing at Gander Green Lane, Sutton. There was also Middlesex Senior Cup success. The season was thoroughly unsatisfactory, mainly due to the bad weather and damage to the Claremont Road pitch. The Greens failed to complete their Ryman League schedule. Simon was the only player to start at least 30 League and 10 cup games, ending on 44 appearances, and he started six of the seven matches played in the final 12 days.
Things were somewhat different under Dave Anderson, but one that didn't change was Simon's level of performance. He collected his second supporters' Player-of-the-Year award, this despite the pressure of long commutes from his Essex base and also took home a Middlesex Senior Cup winners' medal, though only as an unused substitute.
He also found himself wearing a number of different shirts, all too often those in the teens, but he saw time at right-back and in the middle of defence. At the end of the season, the travel became too much for Simon and he left the Club. His love of the club was clear as when Hendon played at Bishops Stortford the following season, he drove to the game, just so he could catch-up with supporters, officials and former team-mates and to return the Supporters Association trophy. Simon came back to Hendon in October , playing for Maldon Town, but he had left the Jam-Makers by the time of the return fixture in April - though the other Simon Clark did play for them at Park Avenue.
It has been announced this morning that our former coach Junior Lewis has been named as assistant head coach of Leeds United. Junior, who has spent three years with us on the coaching side on top of his three years as a player in the late s, will be working under former Forest Green Rovers manager Dave Hockaday, who has been named as the new head coach at Elland Road. Everyone at the club is delighted for Junior, and we all know that he has a lot to offer his new empoyers.
We wish Junior every success for the future as he looks to build on on his career on the coaching and management side of the game. A supporters game has been arranged for this coming Wednesday, 25th June, against Hendon Youth coaches. The game will kick off at 7. If any supporters are interested in taking part, please email Eddie Edwards as soon as possible on eddieedd hendonfc. Any supporters who fancy watching some live football rather than watching it on tv, are of course welcome to attend the game. As many of you will be aware, our supporters team have played a handful of games over the past few months.
Home games will be played at Silver Jubilee Park, and the best thing is that every game we play makes money for the club, so the more games we play means more money to keep our club alive. Footballing ability is not important, just your enthusiasm and willingness to be part of the team. Nick looks forward to hearing from you.
The latest in the series focuses on a Hendon player who gave many years of fine service in the club's tradition of outstanding goalkeepers. Dave Root joined Hendon from Walthamstow Avenue in the summer of In the late s, Dave had the misfortune of being the second-best goalkeeper in Barking's youth team - but he was behind Kevin Hitchcock, who went onto enjoy a long career as a full-time professional.
Although Kevin was the regular first-team and youth-team keeper, Dave made 16 appearances for Barking in and, by the time he moved with his family to run a guest house in Cornwall in , he had played 97 times for the Blues. Dave turned out a few times for Launceston Town, but returned to London and signed for the Avenue in Mark Broughton, a Hendon hero in the relegation battle, returned to Derbyshire, so Ted Hardy was looking for a new goalkeeper, and he chose Root.

Dave made his debut in a defeat at Yeovil. It was the busiest season in the club's history as the first-team played in 76 matches and Dave set a club record, one which will, almost certainly, never be beaten, starting 31 cup ties in the campaign - if Hendon were to win every cup competition they enter next season including the FA Cup , they would play a total of 33 ties. Dave had all the attributes to be a goalkeeper, height, speed, agility and safe hands - until he became a courier van driver, he was a chandelier repairer.
Hardy and Hendon were happy to ignore his one weakness - he was a very poor kicker - and Dave quickly became a fans' favourite. The Greens lost and Root was the scapegoat. F Suffolk senior cup fold. Napoli Send your wants lists. Four second class stamps secures your copy.
