On Saturday 17th February we were at Ship Lane for Bostik Premier action between Thurrock and Hendon.

As for Hendon, they have also had 2 wins in their last 5. Although, despite dropping points to Leatherhead, Folkestone Invicta and Dorking Wanderers, Gary McCann’s side remain strong contender’s for promotion. In midweek, The Dons were without their talisman and leading goal scorer, Niko Muir,  however took the lead quickly, and went on to take all 3 points from Leiston.

The following Bostik Premier League highlights also feature on this episode: Dorking Wanderers v Kingstonian, Leiston v Billericay Town, Met Police v Harrow Borough, and Dulwich Hamlet v Enfield Town.
