Defending champions Hendon eased past Brixton at Hadley FC, running out 4-0 winners.

Doubles from Avidan Last and Ari Last did the damage for David Garbacz's men.

Hendon manager David Garbacz told JC Sport: "This was a game we were expected to win, but nevertheless it was very satisfying to see us complete it in such a professional manner.

"We looked strong all over the park today and some of the chances we created came from some lovely build-up play.

"On another day, we could have scored at least double but the movement of the forwards today was superb and bodes very well for the season.

"Brixton fought well and they have had a tough start, but they played with a good attitude and we wish them well for the rest of the year.

"I though our midfield three were excellent today and totally dominated the central part of the pitch with Ari Last and Lauffer both outstanding.

"A clean sheet was another positive and sets the tone well for the year. All in all a perfect weekend with my son doing a grand job on his Barmitzvah as well!"

Brixton boss John Nitka told JC Sport: "We have had two tough opening games and we played okay. We held them until the 39th minute of the first half when a defensive error let them in to score their first goal.

"Hendon are a very good team and fitness showed on a very hot morning. However, my team can only improve.

"Our goalkeeper Jake Doffman was superb, but I still need a forward so if there is anyone who wants to join us please let me know."
