Hendon headed into Christmas on a high note after beating Brightlingsea Regent at Silver Jubilee Park on Saturday.

The Greens took the lead on 10 minutes when Keagan Cole produced a clinical finish, but Regent were back on terms with a superb strike from leading scorer Billy Hunt.

The visitors had the better of the second-half exchanges but Hendon regained the lead through Dave Diedhiou, as he ran on to a pass and slipped it past Harry Palmer.

And it was 3-1 just two minutes later when Niko Muir broke into the box and fired into the roof of the net from a tight angle.

The home side added a fourth goal as the match entered injury time, with Josh Walker on target, before Hunt grabbed his second in the final seconds.

Victory sees the Greens go into Christmas in fifth place ahead of a Boxing Day trip to local rivals Harrow, which kicks off at 1pm.

Hendon: Lovelock, Eggleton, Lee, Diedhiou, Bray, Wise, Cole (Corcoran 83), Maclaren (Murphy 86), Joseph, Muir, Nathaniel-George )Walker 77). Unused subs: Ball, Campbell-Young.

*Kezie Ibe left Hendon on Thursday, having scored 47 goals in 172 appearances for the club since joining from Basingstoke Town in 2014.

The 35-year-old was finding his playing time restricted due to the form of Niko Muir and Zak Joseph and earned praise from boss Gary McCann, who said: “I am saddened that the time has come for Kezie to move on, but it is the right time from a footballing perspective.

“Kezie needs to be playing regularly and we are unable to offer him that at the current time. He is one of the nicest people you could hope to meet and has served myself and Hendon fantastically over the past three and a half years.

“Kezie goes with our good wishes and with huge thanks for all his efforts during his time with us.”
