Tributes to treble winners Hendon United

Managers from the Premier Division give their verdict on treble winners and JC MSFL champions Hendon United Sports Club A.

“Hendon were the strongest, toughest and most organised team in the league. They are big, powerful, well-drilled and tough to break down. They are hard-working and never give up. However, the best side we came up against was definitely Redbridge.”
Josh Rosenfeld (Brady A)

“This wasn’t the best Hendon side I have seen. I think Jonathan Kestenbaum’s 2009 league-winning side were definitely stronger. This season’s team were more organised than any other side in the division. As I said, if you managed to get a consistent side out every week you had a chance and Hendon managed to do that. Organisation and consistency made them stand out but nothing else. Greg Corin probably was the difference.”
Darren Yarlett ( Neasden A)

“Hendon fully deserve all their success this year. They have been the model of consistency this season and have strength in depth throughout their squad. David had them all playing for each other and they had a good team spirit. Their fitness levels were also very impressive, as was the fact they won the league so comfortably. Clearly it’s no fluke to win the treble and they should be commended on a tremendous season.”
Josh Newman (Lions A)

“Hendon were one of the most organised teams we played. Their strengths were having a big squad every week and being strong at the back. I think they had a good momentum and a combination of these factors did them no harm.”
Zuriel Solomon (Faithfold A)
