Professional Hendon get the job done against Camden

Strikes from Zac Lewis, Rocky Spitzer and an own goal saw Hendon secure their ninth league win of the season to boost their title hopes in the Hadley FC derby.

    A shock looked on the cards early on as Camden Park, who have claimed just a solitary league win this season, took a deserved lead. They capitalised on a sluggish Hendon team, who were "slow reacting to loose balls and in the challenge," according to boss Greg Corin, and they capitalised.

    Hendon were not at it in the opening stages, but they showed their "immense quality" across the team and their "ability to score goals out of nothing" to haul themselves back into the game before half-time.

    The visitors continued to get early passes into their talented wingers, and a great run by Moses Seitler ended with a fantastic cross that was met by the onrushing Lewis at the far post to level.

    Camden defended resolutely until half-time and Corin instructed his players to "get tighter to Camden's midfield and centre forward". Hendon "also spoke about changing the intensity" and they pushed hard to get two further goals to steer them to victory - via Spitzer and an OG.

    Paying tribute to Hendon's opponents, Corin told JC Sport: "Big credit to Camden who showed that despite thier league position, they are a good team, with a number of experienced and technically strong players, who made it a tight contest.

    "It was a vital win for this football club today. It could have been a banana skin but we stayed focused and got the job done.

    "We take every week as it comes and focus on trying to be in better shape when we play again in two weeks time."
