Hendon picked up a well-earned 2-0 victory in their latest league match against Farnborough at a chilly Silver Jubilee Park.

Two first-half goals did the damage with Shaun Lucien firing home at the near post after eight minutes and then Joe White tapping home from close range after Lucien cut the ball back on 26 minutes.
