Hendon bowed out of the FA Trophy after a Halloween 9-goal thriller against Isthmian League side Corinthian Casuals.

Shaun Lucien edged the Greens ahead from the penalty spot before two quick strikes from Jerson dos Santos edged the home side ahead. Skipper Tommy Brewer cracked home a superb equaliser five minutes before the break to take the sides into the interval level pegging.

Kieran Cadogan put Casuals ahead on 57 minutes before Toby Byron headed the Greens level once again. Goals from Jack Strange and Benjamin Checklit appeared to have given Casuals an unassailable lead however Cheyce Grant's 89th minute strike reduced the arrears and set up a grandstand finish. An equaliser wasn't to be, however and the home side held on to progress.
