At Wodson Park again for our regular pre-season visit, in which we took some revenge for Ware's 5-1 win last season.

A 20 minute rain shower before the match and another brief shower just before the final whistle relieved the heat somewhat.

Hendon's squad was a mixture of new signings, last season's players, and three trialists. Ware's squad was unknown, other than two ex-Hendon players, Fred Burbidge, who played the first half only, the other being Tyrique Hunte, who played at centre-forward (but wearing 19) who was with us in 2018-19.

Ware got off to a better start, but Hendon were starting to find their feet when Hunte got clear of the visiting defence and scored with a cross-shot (16mins). Hendon got on terms when Dan Williams headed home on 23 mins from their first corner, taken by Rohdell Gordon.

Hendon came close about 10 minutes later after Gordon had been tripped. He took the free-kick himself, and narrowly missed the near post by about 6 inches. Half-time came with the scores level at 1-1.

The second half was littered with substitutions for both sides, Hendon making five changes at half-time, two more on the hour, and the last two on 67 minutes. Unusually the many changes did not unsettle Hendon, indeed they seemed to improve the team.

The Greens took control from the restart, and pressure on the Ware defence brought their second goal on 51 minutes from Galliford. Ten minutes later a trialist converted a through pass from Galliford, and Bobson Bawling completed Hendon's scoring on 66 minutes after the home defence had blocked several shots, but not cleared the ball.

Ware were definitely second best in the second half, but still looked dangerous, more so when they attacked down the flanks, and they were deservedly rewarded with on 82 minutes with their second goal after a fine piece of work and a good finish from their number 7.

This was a good workout for both sides, with not a lot of free-kicks awarded, although both sides were caught offside a number of times.

Manager Lee Allinson seemed to be happy with the performance, and probably learnt something new about some of his players.
