The first team were beaten 4-2 by a strong, competitive St Neots Town side this afternoon.
On a beautiful carpet of a pitch, the Greens were left rueing some uncharacteristic defensive sloppiness as they went two goals down early on, Ryan Hawkins and Remi Gordon scoring the goals, before Tom Meachin made it 3-0 shortly before half time. Hendon had been positive going forward, and tested the keeper a couple of times.
Hendon pulled themselves back into the game in the second half with an improved performance, and it was Jake Cass who fired home a fine effort from the edge of the area. Just a few minutes later Sam Murphy made it 3-2 with an even better effort, but in the 73rd minute Ollie Thorne put the home side two goals to the good with an absolutely stunning strike from some 40 yards that screamed into the top corner of the net, giving Melvin Minter no chance.
Next up for the Greens is a home friendly at Silver Jubilee Park against Haringey Borough on Tuesday evening, kick off 7.30pm
