The Hendon Football Club Supporters Trust (“the Trust”) was formed in 2006 by a small group of supporters who recognized the need to create and fund a vehicle that could take ownership of the club once the then owners were no longer willing or able to fund it.
The Trust took responsibility for funding the club in 2008 and took ownership prior to the start of the 2010/11 season. With the club having been evicted from its Claremont Road home in September 2008, the Trust Board successfully navigated the club through the choppy waters at Wembley FC and Harrow Borough FC and into it’s new home at Silver Jubilee Park.
