Hendon ended up comfortable winners in their north west London derby with rivals Harrow on Boxing Day.

The two sides had drawn 5-5 exactly two years earlier during the 2015/16 season and last year’s December 26 meeting had ended in a 5-4 win for Harrow.

But Hendon had won 2-0 at Earlsmead in April and romped to a 6-0 victory on home turf back in August and were arguably the in-form team.

And after the hosts were forced into an early change, replacing Michael Bryan with Howard Hall before the half-hour mark, the Greens opened the scoring on 37 minutes thanks to a Chinua Cole own goal.

The second half was only three minutes old when Dave Diedhiou doubled Hendon’s advantage and Josh Walker made it 3-0 just past the hour mark.

Leading scorer Niko Muir got in on the act seven minutes from time, netting Hendon’s fourth goal of the afternoon from the penalty spot to take his tally for the campaign to 26.

And that ensured a happy day for Gary McCann’s men, who visit Harlow on Saturday, while Harrow will hope for better when they host Leatherhead in their last match of 2017.

Harrow: Minter, Moore (O’Connor 67), Cole, Preddie (Davis-Coker 52), Pepera, Cumberbatch, Banya, Stewart, Moss, Bryan (Hall 29), Kabba.

Hendon: Lovelock, Eggleton, Tingey, Diedhiou (McGovern 84), Bray, Lee, Cole (Ball 76), Corcoran, Joseph (Nathaniel-George 66), Muir, Walker. Unused subs: Purdue, Currie.
