History

Hendon Football Club, established in 1908, has been under supporter ownership since 2010. Transitioning to the Southern League in 2018 after 55 years in the Isthmian League, they experienced significant managerial changes with Lee Allinson taking charge in November 2019. Allinson secured the 2019/20 London Senior Cup, succeeding Jimmy Gray who maintained the club’s Step 3 status after Gary McCann’s 13-year tenure.

Notable achievements include a third-place finish in the 2017-18 season, narrowly missing promotion in a play-off final loss to Dulwich Hamlet. The club also won the Middlesex Senior Cup in 2018.

Historically, Hendon has undergone several name changes, starting as Christchurch Hampstead in 1908, and becoming known as Hendon in 1946. They have enjoyed success in various leagues, including multiple titles in the Athenian League and two championships in the Isthian League. Their FA Cup journey boasts 21 first-round appearances and a notable third-round match against Newcastle United in 1974.

The club has excelled in county cups, with 16 Middlesex Senior Cup wins and successes in the Middlesex Charity Cup and London Senior Cup. They moved to Claremont Road in 1926, then to Silver Jubilee Park in Kingsbury in 2016, following stints at Wembley FC and Harrow Borough FC grounds.
