The Dons again won an important game in the league, this time against Aylesbury United who were only a few places below Hendon in the league. The win gave the Dons a lift to 12th place. The goals came from a follow -up from Gentle after Gary Phillips had spilled the ball and two solo efforts from Binns and Whitmarsh. Two Crawshaw goals in the second half pegged the gap back to one goal twice, but the Ducks couldn't find the vital winner.

Assistant-manager Curtis Warmington was taken to hospital during the week with pneumonia. He has since been released, but this has put him out of action for about 2 months.

The Dons won again in the league last night, this time against Walton & Hersham, giving themselves a boost into 15th place in the league, still with several games in hand over most teams. The victory came about from a Fitzgerald equaliser to make the score 1-1, before a superb goal in stoppage time from Whitmarsh sealed the points.

This season's FA Cup dream has been shattered again with the news that Darlington earned the reprieve in the AXA Wildcard draw, winning the prize of a trip to Aston Villa.

The Isthmian League Representative team has been chosen by Don's manager Frank Murphy, and it includes three Hendon players, Paul Towler, Bontcho Guentchev and Paul Whitmarsh. The team will play an FA XI at Dulwich Hamlet's Champion Stadium on the 8th of December.
