I too made the trip to Staines but not being as close to Hendon (at the moment) as other people, I can't really comment on the effect of playing some of the fringe players. But what I would say is that Hendon played a very expansive style which left them open to counter-attacks and it was maybe this that cost them the game. Nonetheless, it was a really entertaining approach and some of Hendon's attacking play was excellent...just the finishing let them down in that regard. I agree with others who have praised the Staines keeper...he was brilliant and without him, that game may well have gone to extra time or resulted in a Hendon win. The one on one save at 2-3 (from Dean?) was a pivotal moment.

But going back to the original point of this thread...if those are fringe players, then Hendon's squad is in good shape. Everyone "put in a shift" and gave everything they had. There was no lack of ability either.

PS: £12 was a bit of a surprise...thought it would be £10 or less but hey ho. And's to some decent weather for Saturday's game. I'm bringing a couple of fellow, game-less, Charlton supporters (I's a long story) and it should be fun. As my Dad would've said "Hendon for The Cup!" or should that be Trophy.....?
