Could it be advantage Hendon?

By Danny Caro, March 21, 2014

And then there were two … the best two teams, according to the league table, which never lies. Although it’s too early to make any cup final predictions, the touch-paper has been well and truly lit by David Garbacz. And unlike David Moyes, I’m sure he knows what he’s doing.
