First season following the Greens and it feels damn good that it ends this way. I was following the live table like everyone else around me and was incredulous when a bloke behind made shouted Burgess have scored. We were all waiting for the fi all whistle there and getting ready to go ape toasting our survival.

I was incredulous really. My phone didn't yet show the BH goal but it flicked up sooner or later and had us 4th from bottom. I literally couldn't believe my eyes. We needed a point. Bloody hell I thought, we've got 45 min to save the season!

I could tell the tension was palpable in the stands and behind the goal and plenty must've feared the worst. But what a start to the second half. Casey leaps like a Salmon and hurls himself at that floated cross and sends the green army into raptures. It was fully deserved on the first half chances. The relief was massive but of course the second half was still a baby.

We huffed and puffed for another and there was a bit of handbags which the ref handled very well. Staines, to their credit, played very well and fought hard for a winner. Had a stinging free kick straight into Tom's midriff and a few other sniffs around the box before the ref saw sense and brought an end to proceedings gone 6.

The relief amongst Hendon faces was there for all to see as I had to make a quick dash for central London. The team had done it. Incredible. Nice one lads. This may be a fairweather thing to say but I don't know how closely I would've followed the Greens next season had we been relegated.

What a season it's been. It all boiled down to 45 minutes in the end. God knows how many players were used but the final squad assembled by the gaffer is one to be proud of and hopefully he says..won't be in the same damn whole in a year's time! Have a great summer friends!
