James Gray has made his first four signings at Hendon, one of whom is someone returning to the club.
The returning player is right back Howard Hall, who was previously with Hendon in the 2012-13 season, when he made 42 appearances, scoring three goals. He left to join St Albans City, where he played under Gray. He has played for a number of other clubs including Barton Rovers, Bishop’s Stortford, Dunstable Town, Hayes & Yeading United, Burnham, Uxbridge, Northwood, Welwyn Garden City and Harrow Borough, which is where he was last season.
The first of the three brand new faces is experienced left back Lee Chappell, who was a regular at Wealdstone for a number of seasons, making over 300 appearances, before going on to make 200 appearances for St Albans City. He was with Royston Town last season, where he made 48 appearances.
Defender Sam Doolan, who is 23 years old, is the second new face and he was with Colney Heath last season, having begun his career with Boreham Wood. He has also played for Dunstable Town, Welwyn Garden City and Kings Langley.
The third new face is Dylan Kearney, who was with Wealdstone and Uxbridge during the last campaign. A 20-year-old striker, he scored 21 goals for Uxbridge last season in 37 appearances, having previously been Hayes & Yeading United.
