A scintillating opening half-hour from Brentford 'B' which saw them produce an outstanding performance of passing, movement and clinical finishing saw saw Hendon's hold on the London Senior Cup come to an early end in this season's competition.

With just three of the starting XI from the final six weeks ago in the Greens line-up, goals from Joe Adams, Valgeir Valgeirsson, Alex Gilbert, Aaron Pressley, Lewis Gordon and a second from Valgeirsson saw the young Bees go into the break 6 goals to the good.

An early effort from Joe White reduced the arrears and the Greens produced a second half performance that saw some excellent football of their own. Ellery Balcombe, Brentford's England Under-21 goalkeeper made four excellent saves throughout the evening before White seized on a defensive error to net his second of the night and complete the scoring on 78 minutes.
