Kings Langley kept their season alive until the last day thanks to a 4-2 win over Hendon at a sunny Orbital Fasteners Stadium this afternoon.

Hendon were hit with a blow less than two minutes after kick-off with the departure of Eren Kinali to injury and they struggled with the tactical re-jig to allow the hosts to get on top.

Alfie Williams seized on hesitant defending to fire high into the net on 28 minutes before Alie Bangura doubled the home side's lead two minutes before the break with Hendon's back four stood appealing for handball.

Joe White reduced the arrears two minutes after the break only for Quba Gordon to concede a penalty five minutes later. Jamie Jellis' powerful effort found Ethan Wady's gloves, but was too powerful for the goalkeeper and the two goal advantage was restored.

Poor goalkeeping from Alfie Marriott allowed Sam Corcoran's regulation shot to slip through his grasp to give Hendon hope, but in the third minute of stoppage time, Bangura grabbed his second of the afternoon on the break to seal three vital points for the home side.
