Thursday 20 September - Full details of FA Youth Cup victory

We now have full details on the under 18's FA Youth Cup win last night. The website team are grateful to Nigel Kyte and Chris Rogers for kindly emailing us today with the information.

The youngsters took the lead in the 10th minute when Patrick Connolly shot across the keeper, and by all accounts should have been further ahead at half-time as they spurned a number of chances. Chalfont St Peter equalised within five minutes of the second half starting, but in the 64th minute Theo Ofori put the Greens back in front, netting from a narrow angle on the right, and Ofori scored again in the 80th minute, firing home at the near post with the keeper wrong footing. The visitors pulled a goal back with six minutes to go with a vicious hooked volley, before Victor Cadenas Soto found the top corner with a superb strike from 25 yards in the 87th minute.

Team: James Reilly, Nathan Kpemou, Deon Marshall (Philip Essondoh), Victor Cadenas Soto, Taylor Rand Brade, Eisa Azab, Hadi Issa, Daniel McNair, Theo Ofori, Patrick Connolly (Hassan Al-Murtada), Shammar Swaby (Khalil Francis-Ouwaha). Unused sub: Jordan Carroll

As we advised yesterday, we are anticipating that the draw for the second qualifying round will be made tomorrow. We'll get the information on the draw out through the usual channels as soon as we can.

Tuesday 18 September - Young Greens defeated in London Senior Cup

A young side, made up of fringe first teamers and under 23 players, were beaten 3-2 at Harrow Borough, who fielded a strong side, in the London Senior Cup this evening.

The only Greens player aged over 22 was skipper for the night Matty Newman, whilst Ben Gray, Edwin Mensah, Cheyce Grant and Jordan Payne all made their debuts, whilst Mickey White made his first appearance since the 2016-17 season having returned to the club this summer as part of the under 23 side.

It was a tough start for Hendon as they went 3-0 down in the first eleven minutes, Ant O'Connor opening the scoring before Dylan Kearney, who left the Greens a couple of weeks ago, marked his first start for Harrow with two quickfire goals.

However, the Greens didn't let their heads drop, and pulled a goal back in the 21st minute through Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick - his first for the club.

The second half saw the Greens have the better of the game, and the better of the chances, and their effort and workrate was rewarded with 10 minutes to go when White scored his first senior goal, but the youngsters were unable to fashion an equaliser.

Despite the defeat, the young Greens came away from the game with a lot of credit, with the only disappointing note - other than the defeat - being the injury suffered by Gray late in the first half.

Tuesday 11 September - Ten man Greens progress in FA Cup

The first team, who ended up playing 55 minutes with ten men, showed real character and desire to beat Harlow Town 2-1 after extra time in the FA Cup replay this evening. Their reward, together with the £6,000 prize money, is a home tie against Phoenix Sports who won 3-0 at Lancing in their replay. The tie will be played at SJP on Saturday 22nd September.

On a mild but wet night, the first half was goalless, with chances at a premium. The Greens were reduced to ten men in the 64th minute when Prince Mbengui picked up his second yellow card, but in the 77th minute Romario Jonas headed home to give the Greens the lead. However, Harlow equalised as the game moved into stoppage time, J.J. Da Cruz the scorer.

The home side put the Greens under plenty of pressure in the opening exchanges of extra time but gradually seemed to run out of ideas, with the Hendon back line keeping them at bay.

The winner came from the penalty spot with two minutes to go. Ricardo German, who had worked very hard all night without any reward, was clipped by the Harlow keeper, and German stepped up to convert the spot kick with aplomb.
