Hendon fell to a 3-2 defeat at Basingstoke to continue their winless run in the Southern League Premier Division South.

Joe White opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time, converting Hendon's first penalty awarded since 1st February 2023 at Yate Town. However, things fell apart after the break as Basingstoke equalised through Brad Wilson before Paul Hodges and Wilson again made it 3-1.

Niko Muir set up a grandstand finish in the 81st minute to make it 3-2, and goalkeeper Dylan Berry was denied an incredible equaliser by a superb save by his opposite number to preserve the three points for the hosts.
