Harrow Borough have thrown evicted Hendon a lifeline by offering to let them play some of their Ryman Premier 'home' fixtures at Earlsmead.
The Green's 82-year association with Claremont Road came to an abrupt end last week when the ground was closed by its owners, the Arbiter Group.
However, with the League giving them the go-ahead to fulfil the rest of their home fixtures at 'suitable alternative grounds' for the remainder of the campaign, Hendon have wasted no time in seeking pastures new.
Hendon Supporters' Trust are set to take ownership of the club shortly and had concluded an agreement with Combined Counties League (CCL) side Wembley to play their matches at Vale Farm.
However, that will not happen until next season after the deadline for notifying the CCL of a formal ground-sharing agreement had passed.
In the meantime, the Greens, which have several former Borough players in their ranks including James Pert and Charlie Mapes, are set to play five of their home fixtures at Earlsmead with the others likely to be played at Vale Farm in a bid to reduce the number of fixture clashes between all parties. The five Saturday games pencilled in at Earlsmead are when David Howell's team are playing away.
Hendon were already getting to grips with the Earlsmead pitch last night after a prior agreement saw them take on Dulwich Hamlet in their FA Cup replay.
Simon Lawrence, chairman of Hendon Supporters' Trust, said: "Harrow Borough's fixtures show there would be less clashes.
Our club secretary Graham Etchell is currently working to identify ground sharing opportunities for the rest of our home fixtures and hopefully this will be a combination of Wembley and Harrow Borough, with the possibility of a further venue if more fixture clashes arise.
"We're certainly very grateful to the shows of support from both Wembley and Harrow Borough."
Harrow Borough chairman Peter Rogers added: "Up until Christmas we have agreed for Hendon to play five league games and we will then look at the period through until the end of the season.
"We will benefit from getting a higher fee and will have revenue coming in over the bar and people in the club on days when it would normally be quiet.
"People might come and see what we've got at Earlsmead and may decide to return to watch the team."
Borough manager Howell echoed those thoughts, saying: "Even though Hendon did better than us last season we still want to accommodate them because we can help out another non-league club and their arrival will help us with our budget in terms of the amount of money we charge them for renting the ground.
"This can only help raise the profile of the club."
Hendon could still pull out of the League if Supporters' Trust members vote to do so at a meeting tonight (Thursday). However, that appears highly unlikely with Harrow and Wembley coming to the rescue.
Nevertheless, the way the twice Isthmian League title holders were thrown out of Claremont Road has left a sour taste in supporters' mouths.
"Clearly, things happening behind the scenes meant the final game was drawing closer and closer," commented Trust chairman Lawrence.
"We were hoping it would come in an orderly manner, perhaps at the end of the season, but the rug has been pulled from underneath us. It is the end of an era."
The Ryman League has charged the Arbiter Group for breaking rules in that they were 'failing to keep its ground in good playing condition and amenities in good working order' for the current season.
