Bostik Premier: Leatherhead 1 Hendon 2

Hendon made sure of a top-five finish in the Bostik Premier with a 2-1 win at Leatherhead.

The Greens took the lead in the 11th minute at Fetcham Grove when Sam Murphy found the target for his first goal of the season.

It was a lead Gary McCann’s men would take into the break, but Jack Midson drew the Tanners level in the 63rd minute.

With the game seemingly heading for a draw, Murphy scored again in stoppage time to hand the Silver Jubilee Park outfit a hugely significant triumph.

The win means Hendon are guaranteed a place in the play-offs, but the Greens still have hopes of also securing home advantage in the semi-finals.
