The Non-League Paper’s Hendon FC correspondent David Ballheimer has just had his second book recounting the illustrious history of the Greens published.
The Hendon Football Club A to Z looks at the BetVictor Southern League club’s history through different topics and player biographies.
A fascinating insight for anyone with an interest in Non-League football and the development of the sport, the new book was penned by The NLP’s veteran correspondent who has been following the club for more than 50 years and wrote his first match reports when programme editor back in the early 1980s.
Ballheimer, Hendon’s press officer for more than a quarter of century, said: “Hendon has been in my blood for more years than I care to recall.
“I love the club and I love Non-League football, the players, the clubs and the unique camaraderie of the game at our level. This book has been a labour of love.”
Following its publication last month, former Hendon star Colin Tate joined Ballheimer at a book signing session in the bar at Silver Jubilee Park after the club’s match against Tiverton Town on Saturday 23 November.
Published by London League Publications, the 328-page paperback, is priced at £14.50.
The book is available from the Hendon FC club shop, the London League Publications Ltd website www.llpshop.co.uk and online at Amazon and Abe Books. To purchase, use ISBN 978-1909885233.
The third-from-bottom Greens host promotion-chasing Merthyr Town on Saturday in the Southern League’s Premier Division South in a 3pm kick-off.
The Greens moved swiftly in early November to unveil Lee Allinson as their new manager, only hours after he stood down as Biggleswade Town boss and less than 24 hours after Hendon parted company with Jimmy Gray by ‘mutual consent’.
Allinson swapped working with a Waders squad in sixth spot in the Southern League’s Premier Central Division to take charge of a Greens side who were then sitting second-bottom in Southern League Premier South.
