A disappointing performance from Hendon saw the Greens suffer a 3-0 defeat against Enfield Town in the Ryman Premier. 

Liam Hope netted the opening goal shortly before half-time and Tyler Campbell added a second for Enfield 13 minutes into the second period.

The victory was rounded off in the closing stages as new Towners signing Jamie Richards tapped home from close range. 

Hendon boss Gary McCann admitted “there haven’t been too many nights like that in recent times” and felt the club’s play-off hopes may have been ended.

He explained: “It was a huge disappointment and it may signal the end of our play-off hopes. Of course, we will keep going, but we have made it much harder for ourselves.

“I think both teams showed a lack of competitive activity for the first ten or so minutes, and that isn’t surprising. But, for the next 25 minutes, we dominated the game.

“We had two or three good chances to score and if we had taken them, I am sure we would have won the game. In the second half, we weren’t as good, but still had more than enough chances to get back into the game. Our quality was lacking in key areas.”
