The Non-League Football Paper - - FA TROPHY FIRST ROUND QUALIFYING - By David Ball­heimer

HEN­DON eased through to the sec­ond round qual­i­fy­ing of the FA Tro­phy.

The first clear chance fell to Langley in the ninth minute when Calum Ade­biyi headed wide from a cor­ner.

Hen­don opened the scor­ing in the 17th minute. Zak Joseph was the cre­ator with a neat run and pass which set up Niko Muir who fin­ished.

Eleven min­utes later Muir was the provider, rid­ing three chal­lenges be­fore pass­ing to Matt Ball who drilled home.

Four min­utes later, King’s Langley were back in the game when Kieran Turner’s cross was headed home by Ade­biyi.

The Hen­don re­sponse was im­me­di­ate, and it was an­other header, this time Dave Died­hiou, who di­rected the ball off the base of the post fol­low­ing a cross by Dar­ren Uchechi.

Hen­don took the sting out of the game and al­lowed King’s Langley plenty of pos­ses­sion, but not any­where near the dan­ger ar­eas.

In fact, the two best chances of the sec­ond half both went Hen­don’s way. The first was a shot from Ash­ley NathanielGe­orge. Then Ball had an ef­fort which went nar­rowly wide.

For all of King’s Langley’s ef­forts, they found it im­pos­si­ble to get the bet­ter of Rian Bray and Arthur Lee. STAR MAN: Zak Joseph (Hen­don) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
