On Saturday 17th February we were at Ship Lane for Bostik Premier action between Thurrock and Hendon.
Despite the confirmation of no longer existing as a club come the end of the season, Thurrock have had an unprecedented first season in the Bostik Premier, positioning higher than all the clubs which were promoted alongside them (Dorking Wanderers, Brightlingsea Regent and Tooting & Mitcham United). In their recent 5, The Fleet have had 3 defeats and 2 wins, with included putting an end to Leatherhead’s unbeaten run of 9.
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.
