New ground (opened a couple of seasons back) which meant Hendon FC finally had a place to call home after years of groundsharing. Decent standard for Step 7 football, with busy clubhouse and covered seating or terraces along all four sides. The pitch is plastic, although on the day I visited, it provided absolutely no home advantage at all! Plenty of car park space or a stroll downhill from the bus route between Hendon and Kingsbury - get off by the Mandir Temple. Prices about average for this level (although admission concessions apply to those 65+ rather than 60+ as is the case at some clubs).

Basic ground and a bit of a walk from any station. But a decent set up once you get there.

Good artificial pitch. Good stands. Bar. Good car park. No food tonight but only a friendly game. Big big queues at A5 Staples Corner

Brilliant football club with a brilliant ground and staff , highly recommend, got to be my favourite football ground in England over premier League clubs included as it consistently has got a good atmosphere and great beverages too , and unlike any big clubs you can get close to the players and the play itself which is always more exciting.

History (from Wikipedia)

Ground[edit]

The club moved to Claremont Road in Cricklewood in 1926. The first match was played on 18 September, an FA Cup game against Berkhamsted that Hendon won 4–3.[2] The ground was also briefly used by rugby league club London Broncos.[11] In the mid-2000s the ground was sold to property developers and it was initially planned that the club would move to Barnet Copthall.[12][13] However, the proposed move fell through and although Hendon had initially expected to leave in 2006, they were still at the ground in 2008; the final match at Claremont Road on 20 September 2008 saw local rivals Wealdstone win 4–1.[2]

After leaving Claremont Road Hendon played at Northwood's Chestnut Avenue, Staines Town's Wheatsheaf Road for the remainder of the 2008–09 season. They then moved to Wembley's Vale Farm before relocating to Harrow Borough's Earlsmead ground in 2013.[14] In 2016 they moved to Silver Jubilee Park in Kingsbury, groundsharing with Edgware Town.
