The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE - By David Ball­heimer

HEN­DON were too strong for a spir­ited Thurrock team who bat­tled hard long after the game was lost.

Hen­don’s Josh Walker struck a post after ten min­utes. Then three goals in six min­utes turned the game Hen­don’s way.

On 19 min­utes, Casey Ma­claren fired a spec­u­la­tive shot from 20 yards that took a big de­flec­tion past Fleet keeper Jake Jes­sup.

Three min­utes later, Jes­sop was de­ceived by Dave Died­hiou’s shot which squirmed into the bot­tom cor­ner.

Ashley Nathaniel-Ge­orge su­perbly set up Nico Muir who turned and struck a low shot into the net to make it 3-0.

Thurrock had chances and Reece Mor­gan struck a post after 30 min­utes.

And they got a life­line on half­time when Chan­ning Camp­bell-Young brought down Char­lie Stimp­son and Ron­nie Winn smashed in the penalty.

Thurrock started the sec­ond half brightly. But Hen­don were awarded a penalty just be­fore the hour mark, Muir mak­ing no mis­take from the spot.

Muir was de­nied bril­liantly by Jes­sop on 75 min­utes.

Thurrock should have pulled a goal back in the last minute but Tim Ogun­rinde fired wide.
