Saturday 05 December - Hendon 3 Enfield 2

Jack Olrog had a headache in finalising his team for the visit of challengers Enfield. Brian Chubb cried off with flu overnight, so a reshuffle was necessary.

Gill Jones came in for his third game, and Russell Cox was dropped back to right back. A newcomer, Russ Fleming played a promising game at right half and had a big hand in this wonderful 3-2 victory against a very strong Enfield side.

Hughes, Churchill and Jenkins were the scorers

Saturday 21 November - Kingstonian 1 Hendon 2

The reserves are still setting a very hot space in the reserve section of the league. With a very good win against Kingstonian they take a five point lead and have a game in hand as well.

Rod Cullum got two goals in the first half and that proved to be enough to win. The game was marred by and accident to John Allen who had 11 stitches put into a gash on his knee.

A hat-trick by Fred Pudney in the first half and three more by Jim Jenkins made up the home tally. Hendry scored a consolation goal for Maidstone in the last minute.

Saturday 26 September - Hendon 2 Bromley 0

The reserves made hard work of the home game against Bromley, running out winners by two second half goals by Mitchell and Cullum.

The game should have been sewn up in the first half but chances were missed that should have been converted. This win keeps us at equal top with six games, six wins.

Saturday 22 August - Walthamstow Avenue 2 Hendon 3

The reserves made a great start at Walthamstow when they surprised everyone with an odd goal in five win. With only Peter Dean and newly appointed skipper George Rocknean with any senior experience, these lads, promoted from last year's 'A' team, turned in some fine fighting football.

Peter Gray put us on the right road when he finished off a deflection from Frank Allan's shot in the fourth minute. A defensive error led to Walthamstow equalising in the 10th minute.

No further scoring until the 43rd minute, when Russell Cox sent Jim Jenkins through to score and give us a 2-1 interval lead.

Walthamstow equalised in the 53rd minute and the struggle was on. A shot from Peter Gray in the 84th minute hit the underside of the bar and went to Frank Allen, who had an easy job to score and make us worthy winners by 3-2.

Team manager Jack Elrog and team coach Bill Fisher were very impressed with the performance of some of the new boys, particularly the left back, 17-year-old Mick Cooper, who is a Brentford Junior.
