I think we should have a thread on Edgware in their own right rather than a shared one with Wembley. It remains to be seen whether Edgware Town will be leaving the SSML at the end of the forthcoming season however hopefully not as they have been a valued member of the League since their return from obscurity in 2014/15, their roller coaster season in the SSML Premier Division in 2006/07 where they swept the board and also from 1987/88 to 1989/90 when they were brief members of the old Spartan League prior to joining the Isthmian League:

'Don't see him fighting off the job offers!'   Disappointing, though entirely predictable, that you should be taking cheap shots so soon at a man who has done so much, and is so well-respect

It’s a strange statement. ”he’s taken the club as far as he can with the current financial restraints”. if there are restraints how much further can they go?? I’m not sure Pochettino is keen

Rhodes, Hendon and Edgware BOTH share SJP EQUALLY, it's SJP the consortium who run the ground and allow us to play and use the facilities.  It's true that Hendon do have a bigger presence at SJP,

Congratulations to Edgware Town on their nail biting win on penalties at Hellenic League Premier Division Ardley United last night (Tuesday 1 September) in the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Road, here are some photographs from the proceedings in Oxfordshire. Good luck to them in the Preliminary Round at another Hellenic League Premier Division Club, Fairford Town:

Thankfully not the Groundhopping FC guy but another groundhopper, Craig Newton, was at the Ardley United v Edgware Town FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round tie last night which Edgware Town won 6-5 on penalties following a 0-0 stalemate after ninety minutes:

Thanks for posting that Rhodes, how fantastic does the new clubhouse look, I've yet to experience it in person but it looks fantastic, not only do Edgware have the best ground in the SSMFL we've now got the best clubhouse, I'm sure it'll be the envy of every visiting club.

There's an excellent article on Edgware Town's 46 year old Scott McGleish in today's Non League Paper who has been brought in by boss Fergus Moore, he netted last week in the FA Cup at Fairford Town:

Glad they put it in such a prominent position after I emailed them last week and asked if they were interested in doing a story on Scott. 

 

Great coverage for the club and I never knew Scott was a PFA rep.

This is really interesting from when The Cold End interviewed Fergus Moore back in June 2018, he really asks some probing questions but I wouldn't expect anything less from Barry:

GRS67 - Not Edgware Town but I know you were at Silver Jubilee Park on Saturday for the Hendon v Maidstone United FA Cup tie, what was it like, has football at Non League level really come to how the groundhopper on another Forum describes. Why didn't the six Maidstone United fans simply hide their support so they could get into the ground rather than sadly be denied entry:

FA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round
Hendon 0-1 Maidstone United
Att: 310

Another one with John on duty at this one, with the car park being my domain. Nice to meet West Berks Palace of this parish. An interesting day for Hendon FC and the landlords of Silver Jubilee Park, which I went as well as could be as expected.

A few extra stewards were brought in, just in case of any issues. There were probably a small number of neutrals from Kent inside but if so they behaved sensibly. Six youths decided to imbibe and not really hide any support of the Stones and were denied admission.

They chose to stand on the small hill outside the ground and sing their way through. At half time Dons director David Bedford took them a drink each outside. At full time Maidstone boss Hakan Hayrettin sent his town over the fence to thank them. Not brilliant on a SD front but a warm understandable gesture.

On the pitch it was a real arm wrestle. I thought we were destined for penalties until the one clear cut chance of the tie was put away 13 minutes from time.

Pride was my overall reaction when eventually settling to some excellent Autumn Red ale in the bar after the game. In Hendon's performance and that of the way the day went.

GRS67 - I assume you are at Harefield United tomorrrow, I see from the London Football Guide that Hendon have another game at Silver Jubilee Park, they have really 'muscled in' haven't they since arriving in 2016 and Edgware Town must find that a bit irritating at times as you were there first two years earlier, it's all about Hendon and you just speak when you're spoken to:

http://www.tlfg.uk/

Southern League Premier Division South
Hendon v Hayes & Yeading United @745pm - this derby is by far the best seventh-tier option on Tuesday night. Although H&YU are a fairly new club, when Hayes and Yeading were separate entities they used to play Hendon regularly over many years so you can probably still class them as old rivals (I certainly do in my head). The Greens narrowly lost to Maidstone in the FA Cup on Saturday whilst H&YU thrashed Bognor. In the league, they're neck-and-neck in midtable so it should be close. Tickets are marginally cheaper if bought online in advance

Rhodes, Hendon and Edgware BOTH share SJP EQUALLY, it's SJP the consortium who run the ground and allow us to play and use the facilities. 

It's true that Hendon do have a bigger presence at SJP, with Hendon naming all but one stand, HFC in White on the Green seats, a club shop etc, however thier fans paid towards these stands as Edgware did for the Ken Batten Stand. 

I don't feel that they have muscled in, both Edgware and Hendon were homeless and SJP offered us both a home which can now boost some of the best facilities at Step 5 for Edgware and 3 for Hendon. 

Where I do get a little bit peeved is when Edgware are forced to move fixtures because Hendon have a home game, I can't really recall a time Hendon have been forced to move a fixture,I'm still unclear as to what takes precedence? 

You failed to mention the write up the LFG have given Edgware ahead of our game on Friday night with Tring in the Vase. 

This might just be one occasion when having to move a fixture because Hendon have a league game on Saturday will benefit us. 

There's a lot of interest in our game and we're likely to be one of the only games on locally on Friday which is why I contacted the LFG and am pushing the game on social media. 

From the LFG 

Friday 9 October FA Vase Second Round Qualifying Edgware Town v Tring Athletic @730pm - the next round of the Vase begins on Friday night with three ties. Of those on offer, this would be the one I'd go to as it's relatively local and features two sides from the SSML. Both sides have struggled in the early-season games but with Tring losing all their matches, Edgware should start as favourites. Edgware are also offering a FREE SEASON TICKET to any locals living in the NW9 or HA8 postcodes. Email for more info - matchdaysecretary@edgwaretownfc.co.uk

Simple Hendon take preference as they are a higher step in the pyramid. The only time a Hendon game has to move is if Edgware have a home game in the FA Cup or FA Vase.

GRS67 - Anyway it's a lovely new kit you have, it's just a shame that you 'Christened' it with that 6-0 home defeat to Harpenden Town. A very nice programme too from that night, the Club seems to have quite a few sponsors which is nice to see particularly in the current climate:

Er? We have a Vase game this Friday because Hendon are at home the following day, why isn't our game taking precedent then?

I stand corrected after reading the agreement between the two clubs below

1.3 In the event of any conflict between the fixtures of ETFC and any other club the team that is higher in the league standings shall have priority at all times and the team lower in the league standings shall re-arrange their fixtures accordingly even if this involves ETFC having to play on another ground in which event no compensation of any kind will be payable by KTMC.

Yes it's a different style of kit, I like how from the back it's all Green then from the front the checkbosrd style is quite striking. 

The club are has new official sponsors as well as several others. 

Programme wise, like most clubs in the SSMFL and at our level we've gone to download only, personally I'm OK with downloads, easier to read and store on phone, tablet etc.
