Have to say I was surprised Hendon didn't win yesterday and the loss of a £7,500 prizemoney cheque is a blow to the Club. A mite annoying to play a biggish club at the right time - change of manager, player absences, poor run of form - and go out.
Dorchester are a talented and technically proficient team, but I made Hendon 6/5 after Tuesday night's Dorchester debacle against Bideford, even though the Magpies were unlikely to play that badly again. I thought the bookies might have gone a little longer, but 6/5 was the best you could get. With late withdrawals from the Magpies team & players possibly carrying injuries, I'd have gone a shade of odds-on Hendon... even with DTFC signing the ex-Southampton U-18 captain, who was rated a cert Premiership player before injury struck.
Still, good to know that the Club can still raise a respectable following for a good day out.
After seven years adrift, it looks as if the Good Ship Hendon has sighted land. Having lived on Townsend Lane, I don't think the natives will be that friendly when you go ashore. I don't need to tell anyone on here that I didn't think you'd make it.
Congratulations - especially to Simon.
The Ryman Premier doesn't look a great league this year. It's been a brilliant start, but making the play-offs is still going to be difficult. Maths & stats say 50-52 points from the next 31 games should do. Need to avoid stalling over the tricky Gate-Ricay-SWP run, though.
As djw says, it's been a great effort all round.
Right! I'm off to glory hunt somewhere else.
