Ricci Crace inspired Hendon to a 3-0 win at Croydon Sports Arena today. Croydon, relegated last Saturday, were hit in the first minute as Randall played through a suspiciously offside looking Crace to score the Greens' first. An almost identical move in the 29th minute saw Crace's second goal, although this time the youngster was clearly onside. Crace completed his hat-trick in the 40th minute, latching onto a loose ball in the area. Croydon did get a consolation goal late in the second half through Simon Mitchell, but it was too little too late.
