The FA have released the proposed league allocations for the 2011-12 season, and as expected, we remain in the Ryman League Premier Division.

Leaving the division are Sutton United and Tonbridge Angels, who will be playing in Blue Square South, whilst for the first time in a number of years, all 4 clubs who finished in the relegation zone have been relegated.

Joining the division are Lewes and Thurrock from Blue Square South, Metropolitan Police and Leatherhead from Division One South and East Thurrock United and Wingate & Finchley from Division One North.

Wednesday 11 May - Greens beaten as Wingate complete treble

It was a night of cup final disappointment for Hendon as they were ultimately comfortably beaten 3-1 by Wingate & Finchley in the London Senior Cup. It was Wingate & Finchley's third success of the season, having won the Championship Manager Cup and the Division One North play-offs already.

However, the first 20 minutes of the game belonged to the Greens, as they took the game to their opponents and deservedly took the lead when Greg Ngoyi bundled the ball home from close range. However, by half-time the scores were level after Murat Karagul found the back of the net.

Wingate took the lead in the 54th minute through Sam Sloma, and they secured the win with 20 minutes to go.

Monday 09 May - Cup Final tomorrow

Tomorrow evening sees our final competitive game of the season as we play Wingate & Finchley in the London Senior Cup final.

This will be the second time we have played Wingate this season, when we won 3-2 in the Middlesex Senior Cup at Summers Lane. Our goals were scored by Lubo Guentchev and Glenn Garner (who scored twice). Josh Cooper scored both goals for our opponents.

Wingate & Finchley will come into the game on a high, having just earnt promotion to the Premier Division via the play-offs, following their 3-2 extra-time win over Brentwood Town on Saturday afternoon. This follows a 4-2 extra-time win over Harlow Town in the semi-finals last week.

Gary McCann will be keen that the Greens finish the season on a high note, but will be under no illusions that Wingate will be a tough test to overcome.

Kick off at Tooting & Mitcham's Imperial Fields ground is at 7.30pm, and admission is £10 for adults and £2 for concessions. We hope to see as many of you as possible at the game tomorrow.
