Howard Hall brace earns a point

Howard Hall celebrated his first start for the club with two goals as Hendon drew 2-2 with Bury Town at a stormy Vale Farm this afternoon.

With plenty of black clouds, thunder and lightning around, and a torrential downpour just before the game started, the Greens put on a much better performance, particularly in the second half.

It was Hendon who took the lead in the 21st minute when Hall shot from a narrow angle and saw the ball deflect into the goal off the keeper. It is thought to be his first senior goal for around 4 years.

Bury were back on level terms five minutes later then Allicion Blake beat Mo Maan at his near post, and just before half-time Billy Clark gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot.

Hendon took the game to Bury in the second period, with Bradley Wadkins unfortunate not to score on two occasions as Marcus Garnham made two fingertip saves. However, Garnham was beaten again in the 77th minute when Hall fired a loose ball home following a Scott Shulton free kick.
