In 1963, having become Hendon in 1946, the club was elected to the Isthmian League, where it played until moving to the Southern League in 2018.

Over the years the club played in five Amateur Cup Finals at Wembley, held Newcastle United to a draw in the FA Cup, and won the Athenian and Isthmian League titles.
